The City of Lights || From the top of Montparnasse Tower, the sky above Paris explodes with vivid color and light… 


I often say that there are certain places in the world that have the power to take my breath away. On my first visit to Paris last fall, the city exceeded all of my expectations and left me with a strong desire for more. I would even go as far to say that the city of lights could quite possibly be the best city in the world for travel photography. I know that’s high praise but from my perspective, with the wealth of possibilities for strong and beautiful compositions and the diversity of subject matter, it could definitely be true…

Song Of The Sea || Vernazza — 

One of my favorite things about traveling is getting to experience, what I like to call, “the moment of discovery”. It’s that special moment in time that can overwhelm the senses and generate palpable feelings of awe and wonder as a breathtaking scene unfolds before your eyes. In that singular moment, everything you’ve hoped to experience and see in a specific place is perfectly represented and frozen in front of you. The air, the sound, the colors, everything seems to coalesce into pure visual harmony. You’ll know you’ve reached it when the only word that comes to mind is wow… 

As a travel photographer, it’s those moments of discovery that I’m constantly seeking. It’s also the reason that certain countries and regions, like Italy and Cinque Terre, capture my focus and attention again and again. For me, places like Vernazza represent a harmonious balance between humanity, nature, and the unpredictable aspects of a sometimes turbulent sea. There are few places in the world that can speak directly to my heart and to be honest, Italy houses many of them.
