Already have a project in mind? Contact me and let’s discuss! I’ve had a camera in my hand since I was a child and seriously began a career in photography during college while also studying television journalism. In my twenties, I concentrated on portrait and wedding photography before turning my lens to travel full-time in 2010. Around that time I also transitioned my general photography blog into a travel-focused blog and began to accumulate a large yet engaged social following compiled of an audience interested in following my burgeoning travel and lifestyle work.

My photography has been featured by print publications across North America, South America, Europe and Australia. My images have been used online by such outlets as Travel+Leisure, AFAR, The Huffington Post, BBC Travel, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle and Grazia.

On a regular basis, I’m still featured somewhere as a “Top Instagram Account to Follow” and am quoted as an expert in photography or social media by entities such as Curalate which specializes in digital marketing.

As a blogger since 2006, my experience is heavily skewed toward online and digital marketing. But I’ve hosted on camera, been a Spaces host for Twitter’s official social audio program, written a column for the Huffington Post on travel photography, and more. My blog has served many brands and destinations as a terrific platform for those looking to connect with a global audience who follow my life specifically interested in my opinion and knowledge.

My blog is pushed out to all of my social profiles where an audience of more than 200K are regularly engaged with my stories and photographs, constantly asking questions and interacting for the purposes of making their own informed decisions on photography, travel or lifestyle.



I have participated in several of the most awarded social media campaigns in the travel industry, such as the #Blogmanay phenomenon that boosted the attendance of Scotland’s Hogmanay into the stratosphere. I was a VisitBritain curator for The Countryside Collection and was the first professional photographer to fly around the world on the new #FSJet in 2015. Luxury brands seek me out because I am adept at presenting their businesses in a way that is accessible without being depreciated, and destinations choose to work with me for my skill in showcasing places in ways not seen elsewhere.

I seek projects and assignments centered around travel that has a net benefit for the people and places visited. Luxury can be sustainable. Slow travel definitely is. One night touching down in a destination is not. My audience reacts to sweeping landscapes, good food, wine, and urban experiences that make for great stories. They like architecture, sunsets, a sky full of stars and smiles on the faces of people they’d meet if they were in my shoes.

They want to be inspired! Let’s work together to bring those stories from your destination, to my readers and followers!

I do not promote the large-ship cruise industry [sorry Royal Caribbean and Princess I’m not your girl], backpacking, family, or budget travel for the sake of budget travel.

I accept paid guest post requests, only. I do not publish works of “of interest to [my] readers” simply because someone else wants me to. My site is about my personal travel and lifestyle, as such I am more than happy to endorse and represent brands that I have experience with and genuinely love. Any experience to the contrary will be handled between myself and the client first, before publication, though honesty on my site is a very firm policy. Should I receive compensation (financial or otherwise) for anything published on this site and/or elsewhere, this will always be clearly disclosed. That is not ever negotiable.
