Robert Annis

After spending nearly a decade as a reporter for a major metropolitan newspaper, Robert Annis finally broke free of the shackles of gainful employment to become an award-winning outdoor-travel journalist (and certified bear guide). Over the years, he not only photographed Alaskan coastal grizzlies, fly fished for rainbow trout in Patagonia, skied the world’s best powder in Japan and pedaled Cuba with its national masters team, but also lived to tell about it in the pages of InsideHook, National Geographic, Outside, Travel + Leisure, AARP, Midwest Living, Sierra, Hemispheres, Lonely Planet, Afar, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune and Hidden Compass.

If you’re looking for Robert, chances are you'll find him hunched over his laptop either in an airport bar or his camper van, frantically trying to make his next deadline. In the meantime, you can find examples of his work at or check out his in-progress adventures at
