Why Travel Photography?

I was born to travel. Photography came a little later.

I’ll start at the beginning. I was born in Austin, Texas. My father was in the Air Force, and had orders to move his new family to Morocco two weeks later. That was the first of many moves. We never stayed in one place longer than about four years.

I grew up enjoying the nomadic lifestyle. So many places to explore! Since then I’ve taken every opportunity to travel. I finally bagged all seven continents during my 2008 trip to photograph the solar eclipse in China.

Which brings me to travel photography. In addition to his day-job in the USAF, my dad was an avid photographer. My first camera was an old Brownie box that he didn’t use any more. I think I was six when he gave it to me.

Of course we had a darkroom. Some of my earliest memories are helping my dad develop our latest batch of photographs. Together, we documented life wherever we happened to be at the time. It was the beginning of a lifelong love affair with travel photography.

This gallery contains some of my best photos from around the world. I wish I’d kept all the pictures from my childhood. But, I had standards. Over the years, I threw out the “junk”. As a result, Europe is entirely missing from the collection. I was a baby when we were in Africa. Other places are waiting to be sorted and scanned. It’s a work in progress.

Hopefully, you’ll enjoy viewing these photographs as much as I enjoyed taking them.
