About The Ted Simon Foundation and the Committee of Advisors

bkgImageContent-18-TedSimonsAdvisorsThe purpose of the Foundation is to encourage and assist travellers in making an extra effort to develop their observations and insights into something of value for the rest of the world to share, whatever their medium of expression might be. To those who are setting out we will offer advice, contacts and, where possible, practical help. To those on the road or returning, we will offer assistance in transforming the raw material of adventure into something stunning for the rest of the world to appreciate. This kind of mentoring is provided by the Foundation’s Committee of Advisors who are all veteran travellers and well known for their talents and expertise in the fields of publishing, photography, film, music, art and performance.
