|Here are some of my favorite quotes that I have come across recently. |
"The more I travel, the more I realize how much I don't know."
"It takes one day to destroy a house; to build a new house will take months, and perhaps years. If we abandon our way of life to construct a new one, it will take thousands of years." Maasai belief
Much like a musician feels about an instrument he has played thousands of times, being behind the camera feels perfectly natural to me, and began with my college degree in photojournalism. I am passionate about bringing aspiring photographers of all ages and skill levels to exotic cultures to teach them both the art of capturing great images and the storytelling challenges of representing the culture in a respectful way.
