October 2019 Trover Travel Scholarship

We are inspired every day by the beautiful discoveries you share with us. To honor the vibrancy and value that each of you brings to Trover, we created the $500 Trover Travel Scholarship. Each month, we award it to one traveler who has particularly inspired us with their photos and stories.

This month, we’re thrilled to award the Trover Travel Scholarship to Jakub Bors!


Meet Jakub Bors! This explorer’s passion for our beautiful world is apparent in his vivid photography. He has no shortage of spectacular scenes to shoot near his home in Scotland’s incredible Isle of Skye. Finding freedom and inspiration in travel, Jakub combines thorough research with getting “purposely lost,” noting that it’s a “little bit of unplanned adventure that ends up being the best.” He doesn’t leave home without his camera gear, a Sony A7r ii with a 24-240mm F/3.5-6.3 lens. To share his love of photography and help feed his wanderlust, Jakub created Clever Photographer, where fellow shutterbugs can improve their skills through online-courses and photo tools. We asked Jakub to share a few insights on his favorite finds with the Trover community. Take it away, Jakub!

Louvre Pyramid, France
Always dreamed to visit and photograph – especially in the evening. I was amazed by the atmosphere and feeling of the place.

Porto, Portugal
Incredible amount of history, hidden spots and amazing opportunities for photography. Porto was one of my favourite European cities I photographed as it felt incredibly photogenic.

Eilean Donan Castle, Scotland
The one Scottish castle that looks good under every light and in every condition. I will never get tired photographing it as it’s beautiful and has incredible surroundings.

Thank you, Jakub, for sharing your travels with the Trover community! We’re blown away by your astonishing captures and thoughtful details. Follow Jakub on Trover to be awed by his jaw-dropping finds and see what he discovers on his upcoming adventure to Strasbourg, France. He’s seeking out amazing architecture, fascinating history and, of course, superb photo opps! Check out Jakub’s website to see more of his beautiful photos, learn his photo secrets at Clever Photographer, or catch him on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. Enjoy the $500 for travel, Jakub. Trove on!
