#Blessed quokka guy takes animal selfies all over the world for a living

Both animal selfies and travel photos are the stuff internet dreams are made of, but this guy makes a living out of the two.

New Zealand-based photographer Allan Dixon graduated in computer engineering and tussled with a slew of failed start ups before turning to what he calls “adventure content marketing.”

After defeating half a million or so other competitors in the ‘Outback Adventurer’ division of the Best Jobs In The World competition (a campaign by Tourism Australia) Dixon now spends his days living his best life — and getting truly inspiring selfies with animals. 

Quokka die-hards may remember that Allan Dixon (the very same!) is responsible for The Quokka Book. And adorable concept that sadly, didn’t reach it’s kickstarter goal. 

We dare say a book of animals selfies would do even better.

Dixon recently announced that he’s about to up the volume of videos and jealousy-inspiring photos he publishes. Petition to get him focussing solely on animal selfies by 2017? We vote yes. 

While you’re busy lurking Dixon’s various social media accounts, spare a thought for Scottish photographer Allan Dixon, who had to put a disclosure on his Facebook page that he was not “the animal selfie guy.”
