I never thought of myself as a 'Travel Photographer.' However, I realize that all my travels and vacations are based around photography. This year I went to India and will be having a show of that work in 2020. This summer I'll be traveling to San Fransisco to photograph work for the Care Through Touch agency on a book project. Last year we did a road trip of historic Route 66 and will be having a show of that work. In the past, trips to various National Parks were all photography excursions.
This year I've had several requests from Photo Clubs to do presentations on Travel Photography. It has made me think about photography as a sense of place. And ultimately using photography as a medium to express feelings and emotions for various locations. To relive that moment in time that may only last a second, but lives indefinitely through the photograph. And to realize that time is a relative concept.
So maybe I am a Travel Photographer. I guess we all are - as we travel through life!
