On occasion I have been asked “why travel and food photography?”
The short answer: Photographing food and travel images for businesses, brands and magazines allows me to combine three things which I am passionate about: eating, exploring and recording amazing experiences to share with others.
The longer answer: The fact that I do this professionally means that I have followed these interests and passions with a zeal to rival that of a new camera owner out on their first day shooting. I absolutely love what I do and I feel lucky to share that enjoyment with my clients and their customers. Photography is not only the way in which I have navigated the world for the past ten years through Europe, North America and the Caribbean; it is the way in which I want others to share in an experience of the world with my images. My career goals extend far beyond stellar service of clients. Getting others excited about the amazing experiences my clients offer to their customers via visual expression of their story is the career goal which I strive for most.
I feel that the following definition sums up many of my feelings toword photography:
vocation |vōˈkā sh ən| noun
a strong feeling of suitability for a particular career or occupation : she felt a strongly about the her love of animals and the veterinary vocation.
• a person’s employment or main occupation, esp. regarded as particularly worthy and requiring great dedication : her vocation as a visual artist.
• a trade or profession.
ORIGIN late Middle English : from Old French, or from Latin vocatio(n-), from vocare ‘to call.’
