Hi and welcome to my site. My name is Nate Bunger, I am an American photographer and entrepreneur living in Colombia.
In 2009, I sold all of my belongings and left the United States to live out a life long dream of world travel.
Prior to that I had been a contractor building homes and flipping properties. I did well for myself until the market collapsed in 2008. I remember feeling like I had no idea what I was going to do with my life, but I knew a dramatic change was unfolding for me.
After selling everything, I decided to use the money I had and travel to South America. My initial plan was for a month, which quickly turned into a year traveling the entire continent. From Peru and Chile to Argentina and Brazil. I never planned a single day, just let life take me wherever it wanted.
In July of 2010, I arrived in Colombia after spending some time in the Brazilian Amazon. It only took a few days after arriving in Colombia to realize I never wanted to leave.
It was a combination of the perfect climate, dream like landscapes, beautiful women and an amazing energy of change the country and it's people we're going through. This feeling has only grown over the years.
Fast forward several years and I now I am the owner of an award winning hotel concept called Casa Miraflores which I founded in 2012, based on the idea of co-living for artists and entrepreneurs. When I'm not busy with the hotel, I spend my time pursuing my new passion of photography, doing mainly portraits of the most beautiful latin women on the planet. I could never have planned this life. I am an example of what happens when you truly let go in the direction of your dreams.
And I do believe the best is yet to come.
