The challenges of travel photography are very similar to those of other photographic disciplines. Whether on assignment or just on vacation, to capture the essence of a place, a landmark, a city, a village and its people; to tell its story is what I am looking to achieve. That often means getting up at the most ridiculous hours of the day and confronting unpredictable, crazy weather besides doing a lot of reconnaissance work. I love doing this, as it is an adventure on its own and I know I will be seeking this 'rush' for the rest of my life.
