Hey! Wanna hang out? Got a dog(s) and a van? Visit the link on my new project's account: @dogsandvans or DM me over there. I'm headed down the West coast in March and April and would love to meet up. Plus I'll shoot our adventure on film. ✨🐶🚐✨ 8.1k ♡
Find Momo on a park trail. 12.8k ♡
He's probably checking if I'm putting my boots on. Had such a good weekend exploring Galiano, we're resting at @bodegaridge until our next excursion. 21k ♡
I'm kicking off a personal project today called @dogsandvans! It’s about dogs and vans (yep), but also the connections they bring and adventures they bring us on. We’ll be travelling down the West coast, chilling with our friends at @gowestycampers, making new friends with dogs and vans, and having epic adventures along the way.
I'm looking for folks with dogs and vans to take epic adventures with down the West Coast in March & April, so get in touch by going to dogsandvans.com and clicking "Get Involved".

Larger than life on Galiano. ❤️ Name one place that took your breath away. These places entangle us into the moment, and there's nowhere else you'd rather be. 28k ♡
So many cabins to explore around @bodegaridge.

I got some amazing news yesterday. Momo’s hip dysplasia is (in the words of Dr. King) “very very very very very minor”. He doesn’t need any surgeries. Hearing this completely elated me. I had to take a minute to appreciate life and all of its fragility.
Plus, he’s been feeling way better. Since learning about his hips, we changed his diet, have been cautiously consistent with his exercise, and have been giving him massages. We’ve have already seen some amazing results. We’re still carefully balancing things, and I’m making sure he’s got the vet’s recommended amount of glucosamine, chondroitin, and omega 3s. Thanks so much to all of you who shared advice and sent good vibes.
One lesson I’ve pulled from this is that pet insurance ain’t at all a bad idea. If we’d needed the surgery, insurance would have likely covered 90% of the $10k+ bill.
(Note that Momo only jumped in a few times since the water was cold! We warmed him up right after he got out, but he was stoked to be swimming.) 22.7k ♡
We woke up in the van this morning, smiling with frozen noses. It's been a bit. After falling in love with Vancouver for a few months we're finally gearing up to take a trip down the coast. 🚐✨ 18.3k ♡
If you have a skill, you should practice it. And if you are given the opportunity, you should share it.

Hello! Big news: I just released a class I created for you on @skillshare. I'm so stoked and it was so much fun and such a challenge to create. It’s a self-paced online video class, a journey for you to create a photo series using a common theme. Mine, as you may have guessed, is Momo, and here’s the first of the three photos I created for the class; my #makeporchraits series.
Enroll here: skl.sh/andrewknapp (link in bio). We worked so hard on creating this class with the amazing @skillshare team and I’d be thrilled if you’d give it a shot, and please let me know what you think of it! I’m making it FREE just for you, this week only. 16.6k ♡

Sometimes I see a perfect little hole in a bush and wonder if Momo would fit behind it. Sometimes he does. Sometimes people see me doing this and either a) laugh or b) ignore the situation entirely. But I know you noticed my dog in the bushes. I know. 👅 30.2k ♡

We've got a few new projects in the pipeline coming out in March. One of them is a class where I'll show you how to shoot a photo series, the other is a personal project that's gonna take us down the coast into Southern California shooting dogs and vans and making new friends. I couldn't be more excited about both of these things. Stay tuned kiddos. ✨❤️✨ 25.5k ♡
