Hey there,

Hannah Unbound standing in front of Amer

my name is Hannah Smentkowski and I am the photographer, hiker, camper, anxious introvert, craft beer drinker, and writer for Hannah Unbound!

     I started this photography and blogging business to share my years of outdoor adventures with the world, but now it has become something far greater than that.

     Now, I have the ability to help anxious people like me explore the outdoors with confidence, and help eco-friendly businesses flourish in this modern online space with photos and videos for their companies. Plus, I get to give back to our natural environment by donating a portion of my store profits to plant trees! 

     I have been practicing photography for over 15 years now, and now I'm working on the art of videography and blogging. All I've ever wanted to do is travel the world and protect our natural resources, experiencing and capturing every moment I can along the way. Now, I have the platform to share my vision and knowledge with all of you and I can't wait to see where it takes us!

A little bit more about me...

  My favorite ways to enjoy nature are:

  • paddle boarding

  • hiking 

  • backpacking/car camping

  • identifying native plants (I'm quite the botany nerd)

  • enjoying a fresh craft beer outdoors

  • and taking pictures of all of it!


    My current home base is San Diego, California, USA, but I'm frequently on the move and am willing to go almost anywhere at any time.

    Feel free to reach out with any questions you may have on outdoor experiences, travel, photography, or if there is anything I can do for you or your business.

I can't wait to connect with you!

Until then,

Happy Trails!
