“If I'm an advocate for anything, it's to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. The extent to which you can walk in someone else's shoes or at least eat their food, it's a plus for everybody. Open your mind, get up off the couch, move.” -Anthony Bourdain
One of my greatest joys in life is to immediately take a photo walk when arriving in a new place. Meandering about, seeking the perfect shot, gives me an instant connection on a new adventure. All other thoughts disappear, and I breathe in every detail. I see families going about their everyday lives, I smell delicious food I've yet to try. I experience how the light hits this new place at just the right angle. I appreciate everything I often overlook at home.
I've been fortunate to explore 14 countries over the past 10 years, learning most of my photography skills out there on the road, with a lovingly-bruised but well-traveled camera. Below, you will see photos from Argentina to Utah, from waterfalls to vast deserts... and everywhere in between.
I am currently in the process of editing photos from a cross-country Amtrak ride, a national park road trip, and my most recent summer in Argentina - so many more photos are on their way! Post-pandemic, I plan to travel to Bulgaria and look forward to exploring a new country through my lens.
