Photographer Allan Dixon has the best job in the world, or at least in Australia.

In 2013, he was one of six winners of Tourism Australia’s Best Jobs in the World competition, where he was named Northern Territory’s Outback Adventurer. That experience inspired his current Instagram campaign, #DaxonsAnimalSelfies, which is exactly what is sounds like but even more adorable than you’d expect.

I’m back in Australia catching up with some old friends 😂 Super exciting adventures ahead! #DaxonsAnimalSelfies

We could all learn something from Dixon’s creative entrepreneurial spirit. His TEDx talk is worth revisiting, too.
