About us

Meet Iza & Nico – the young but experienced founders of Baikara.

BAIKARA

Our desire is to share with you our thoughts about the places and people that we’ve had the chance to visit or meet… and to tell stories. We are travelers first, and photography came naturally after for me, Nicolas. It was the best tool in my hands to express my feelings and tell how we live together these remote adventures around the globe. Images can be strong, powerful… as well as the stories that go along with them!

OUR STORY
We met in China, where we both did a Masters degree in International Business. We spent every spare moment that we had discovering this huge country and South-East Asia. We explored this continent for about 3 years and this is where we lived our first real adventures, like crossing Vietnam on motorbike, or traveling 14,000 km from Hong Kong to France, via the Trans-Siberian train. Then, we decided to go to South America, and to explore in depth the country of Peru. Over the years, we kept on exploring more and more the countries around. So the need to capture what we were seeing and to document what we were living, grew naturally inside me. Slowly, I got interested in photography, before it became a real passion…

Iza and Nicolas

With Iza & Nicolas you will never be lost! They both speak 5 languages: French, Polish, English, Spanish and Chinese. It helps them a lot while traveling. Nicolas is a mountain & photography lover. He’s always looking for the most astounding places for trekking, or for interesting and unplanned encounters with random people around the world. He never stops saying how beautiful a place is (even if he visited it five times!) : that’s what we call ” The love to travel”! Well, he is French and from time to time, he needs a good wine or a smelly cheese…Izabela, with her never-ending-smile, is a people lover too, passionate about traveling, of course, especially when it comes to meeting people, their culture, traditions, and life stories… You should definitely see her youtube videos where she talks about her travels and experiences with the locals!
