There are two ways of working with us — as Uncornered Market or QV Global. Read below and choose which best meets your needs.
We are honored to have won Gold as Best Responsible Tourism Blog at the World Responsible Tourism Awards at WTM London.
Do you want a unique story and personal face for your brand? We work as brand ambassadors with select brands who share similar values, and also with clients on targeted campaigns. With eight years experience traveling the world to over 90 countries, from Argentina to Uzbekistan, we inspire and empower our audience through our photography and stories, turning the “I can only dream of doing that” into a reality. Take a look at our Sponsorship Kit for more information.
“Recently Lonely Planet teamed up with Audrey and Dan to produce one of the four videos for our Weekend Wanderlust travel series in partnership with Ford Motors. We couldn't have asked for better talent with their travel expertise, easy going nature and willingness and excitement they brought to the set both days. I hope to collaborate with Audrey and Dan again!” – Hannah Gibson, Digital Design Lead, B2B at Lonely Planet
“During my G Adventures tour in Iran there were seven Americans in my group. They all had heard of G Adventures for the first time through Uncornered Market.” – Kathy Meresz, G Adventures staff
Note: Please read our Editorial Policy to understand that we do not take guest or 3rd-party posts. All content on this site and our social media platforms is created by us based on first-hand experiences. That's how we build trust and maintain integrity.
Daniel and Audrey have been outstanding partners since we launched the Wanderers in Residence program late 2010. We chose them because of their stellar work on Uncornered Market and because of the way they interact with and inspire the global travel community.
Daniel is one of the top bloggers in travel and I have been fortunate enough to work with him on campaigns with tourism boards as well as content creation for G Adventures' blog. Daniel is also an amazing public speaker with his wife Audrey and I have been lucky enough to see them work their magic on stage at TBEX Dublin and ITB Berlin...huge assets to the travel industry and brands should definitely want to work alongside them as they are outstanding storytellers that produce phenomenal content on both their blog and in real-time via social media.
Need a new story angle to breathe life into a destination or brand? Would you like to inspire and motivate consumers? Perhaps you’d like to change the perception of your destination? Interested in sharing the more human and personal side of your destination? This is what we do. As digital storytellers we use our blog, photography and social media platforms to reach over 1.2 million people monthly with our story — and your story.
For more information on our reach, approach, demographics and which story angles and content we can bring to a project please take a look at our Media Kit.
Around 60 percent of our trekking clients now come from the Uncornered Market blog post only. We also love to walk with them, because they are aware of everything — Ladakh’s fragile environment and also about culture.” – Stanzin Odzer, Founder of Ladakh Ecological Footprints
Instead of the superficial, touristy coverage of the country, they [Audrey and Dan] delved into its hidden treasures to not only shed light on things not usually reported on, but also to entice others to travel and experience a country in a different way.
They were exceptionally great to work with; they’re extremely professional, and knew exactly what we needed. Their coverage is well-timed, insightful, and genuine.
In addition to the articles and photographs on Uncornered Market, we also write for other publications, websites and brands. Here is a sample of our writing clips, including travel and sustainable tourism articles, photo slideshows, and more. Find more here.

Why Work with Dan and Audrey?
Why work with us? Experience, quality, perspective. That’s what we bring to everything we do. We're approachable, too.
We left our traditional consulting and business careers and 20+ years of combined experience to pursue a dream of traveling around the world on what was meant to be a 12-18 month sabbatical. Along the way we built Uncornered Market and our business from the ground up into one of the leading travel blogs and social media influencer platforms in the industry.

“I was thinking about traveling to South America for a long period of time but still had some fears inside. But such kind of posts you are writing – they are full of inspiration and they make me change my mind about such countries as Colombia.” – July Gadabot, Uncornered Market reader
