And he gets paid for it.

There are a lot of cool jobs out there, but Ireland-based photographer Allan Dixon may have the best. He's an adventure content marketer—meaning he travels and takes a lot of selfies with animals.

How he got the job is a story itself: He entered Tourism Australia's Best Jobs in the World competition, beating out hundreds of thousands of other applicants for job title of “Outback Adventurer (Northern Territory).” The job required a relocation to New Zealand, which is unofficially the best place for animal-spotting.

Spend a few minutes on his Instagram account and you'll see just how great this job is.


Just horsing around. Spread happiness by telling funny jokes. Thanks @zephyr_horses @goproanz #DaxonsAnimalSelfies
