Photojournalism

I believe there is something missing in much of today’s travel journalism, great stories!

Information for information’s sake is readily available at every turn, in print and online, including such content as price comparisons, ratings, directions, must sees and must dos. What I believe people want is insights into what happens between route guides and TripAdvisor recommendations.

Over the years that I have spent traveling the planet, I found there to be a fantastic dynamic somewhere between pre-travel expectations and “in the moment” reality. Travel is a process that’s alive and breathes, it is not the static description that sits on the page of a travel catalogue. Between those details is often where the drama, the excitement and the memories are made. That is where great stories come to life.

In my work, I spend more time contemplating how one may feel, why certain things move us, are relatable and emotionally charged, than I do on a checklist of “must dos”. I believe in providing the detailed information travelers want, but never absent of a great story.
