A LITTLE ABOUT US

Hey, it's nice to meet you!

This is our team, Deleigh and Lindsey. And we love adventuring, really really. 

We couldn't think of anything better than getting outside and showing you a good time. 

With two decades of combined experience as industry leaders, we are professionals who care deeply about our craft of getting people back into nature plus documenting it!

What is Digital Native Workshops?

In short, we are an adventure company that takes you out of your everyday routine and takes you back to nature. 

In detail, we do a lot. We plan your adventures for you. From renting vehicles, planning your itinerary, to planning your meals and guiding you through all of it. We photograph the whole trip and provide you with an epic recap of your adventures.

 Want to get away for a weekend with friends, but don't want to plan it, we got you covered.

"We believe that no matter how fun city life can be, there is something special about being in the middle of nowhere. Getting into nature and off the grid can really help let go of the daily grind and the fast pace of life that our world has created. Let's reset"

Deleigh Hermes

Founder

Having already been a world traveller before 2014, she got the itch to travel more. In June of 2014 she quit her full time job at Deep Eddy Vodka and sold everything. She packed what would fit in her car and hit the road...for 5 years. On the first leg of her trip, she set out to camp from Texas to Oregon, it was this trip that started the whole idea. So, with many years in the making, Digital Native Workshops has finally been unearthed!  Taking everything she has learned by trial and error along the way as well as getting certified in various wilderness courses, she will provide what you need to get started in the backcountry! 

As far as photography, Deleigh is a published photographer with several accreditable publications. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Digital and Photographic Imaging from Texas State University. From there, she had taken workshops with Chris Burkard and two National Geographic Workshops with John Stanmeyer. She has worked with National Geographic, Yahoo!, Backpacker Magazine, High Times, The Economist, and Mother Jones. She has also won several awards for her photography. 

FUN FACT: Lindsey and Deleigh will also be training in the next year for Rebelle Rally, the only women's off road navigation raid in the United States

Lindsey Thorne 


Lindsey picked up her dad's camera when she was 16 and she's never looked back. After receiving a BFA in Photography from Savannah College of Design and Art, she got her start in New York City and quickly established herself as a stylish and editorial photographer. Lindsey's easy going and professional demeanor make her highly sought after both in Texas and internationally. Because of her strong training in lighting and posing, one of her specialties is giving her clientele beautiful natural portraits. 

She is an avid camper and trekker and is excited to incorporate her specialty in lighting and portraits in the backcountry! 

FUN FACT: Lindsey wants to be a stunt car driver in the future!
