David Luten, Creator and Founder

You can call me Dave.  I started the modern magellan because I love to travel and explore. I love to experience new places and new cultures. You’d be hard pressed to find somebody more passionate about those things, but go ahead and try!  With an eclectic background ranging from cooking in the country’s top kitchens to working for some of the fastest growing tech start-ups to traveling to remote corners of the earth– I like to say I can bring just about anything to the table.  At the modern magellan, I bring a creative eye and adventurous spirit into each photography shoot. With an extensive travel resumé ranging 6 continents and 25 plus countries, nothing gets me more excited than to plan your next big adventure. But most importantly, I have a passion for people and building relationships– and that’s what I want to bring to you.
