My first travel adventure was a journey to Mexico when I was 15, and I’ve been hooked ever since. My passion for travel seems to be never-ending: once I return from one trip I’m already planning the next. For me the hook of traveling is seeking out new experiences, and meeting the people, forming long-lasting friendship on other continents. The stories, culture, and history are just as important as the tangibles in a destination. Oh, and let’s not forget the food and wine!
As a wildlife and nature photographer, it is important to me to have a travel specialist who can increase my odds of getting the picture, which includes making recommendations on the best destinations and times of year.
On a recent trip with to India, home of the Taj Mahal, my guide showed me the best location to photograph the reflecting pool in front of the monument, and where to best capture the shimmering beauty of the tomb. It is this attention to detail that our specialized guides deliver to help me get the picture.
My goal is to see all seven wonders of the world and I’m well on my way.
