Welcome to my Photography and Travel Blog…
My hope and purpose of this blog is to share my travels with
Photographs, Information and Tips & Suggestions.
Any places (hotels, attractions, equipment, etc) that I suggest or mention are solely based on my experience. I am not being paid or compensated for my endorsement, unless it is clearly noted.
Photography has always been something that I’ve enjoyed. I didn’t really find my “eye or style” for photography until about 2007-8 when I just started seeing things differently….exploring angles and composition…seeing things from a different perspective – mine.
In 2009, I decided to leave the confines of a cubicle existence in the corporate world and follow my passion – photography and travel, and I haven’t looked back once. My “tag line” for photography has always been “Profile, Product, Events & Life…” Although primarily a portrait/lifestyle photographer, I’ve always enjoyed capturing life in general.
This has included architecture, landscapes and just about anything that catches my eye.
I have felt like a bit of a nomad my entire life. Being the youngest of six kids, I found myself creating an adventurous world around me. Playing in the woods or along the different waters around where I grew up in NJ, I was always imagining explorations and far off places to visit. As I grew older, my sense of adventure kept growing as I paged through National Geographic and other publications that I found – dreaming of all the places that I could go to and people I could meet, near and far.
In 1989, I headed to South Florida to attend college and spent my days going to class, surfing and working. I had a few small trips to visit family back north, and down to the Keys, but nothing too exciting. I would soon discover that this was only the beginning and my thirst for travel and adventure would just keep growing and growing.
My first big adventure came about when I had a friend who was going to University over in England and she invited me to come for a visit. Literally a conversation happened, a passport application filled out, a time frame figured out (2 months!) a plane ticket purchased, and off I went (this happened in a span of a little over a month!) This was in ’93, and the travel bug had bitten, and it hasn’t stopped since!
My Travel list so far includes the actual locations as well as surrounding towns/cities (some more than once):
England (London, Derby, Manchester, Nottingham, Leeds
and a few other locations)
Prague, Czech Republic
Nepal (Kathmandu and surrounding areas)
India (New Delhi, Allahabad, Varanasi and a few other locations)
USVI (St Thomas, St John), BVI (Tortola, Virgin Gorda), Sint Maarten, Puerto Rico and The Bahamas (Nassau, Sampson Cay-Exumas)
Vancouver, BC Canada
USA (Have visited all but Alaska, Montana, Idaho, Nebraska, N. Dakota,
S. Dakota, Wyoming )
This list is nothing in comparison to many people who I have had the pleasure of meeting/talking to in my travels and through the internet, but you have to start somewhere. Considering a majority has only happened in the last 6 years, I’m certainly not complaining!
This, is only the beginning!
I feel at this point in my life, I have a purpose. It might not be a huge one to some, but it is to me – and that is to share my experiences. Take photos and share them. Write down my experiences and things that I find, and share them. Offer a travel and/or photographic perspective to anyone who is interested. I hope that in joining me on my continued journey of photography, travel and writing, that you get to experience places that you either haven’t been to, wish to go to, or don’t even know about! My goal is to get photos and articles published (print and electronically), work on
travel guides, and to create a few photo books from projects that I am working on.

I am a photographer….a traveler….a dreamer….
It is my passion, and my job….
I do what I love…and I love what I do.
