Every so often I get a request to do an interview either in written form, over the phone, and even the odd podcast.
Last week I got the chance to chat with Aaron Parker who hosts a podcast called “The Lucky Few” on the Notable Life website. It’s always fun the get the chance to talk to different people about photography, travel, and whatever else comes up. Aaron is doing a new series on the podcast called “Free Spirits” and thanks to my friends Dave and Deb from the awesome travel blog The Planet D, introductions were made and shortly afterwards Aaron and I had the opportunity to talk while I was home for a while.
Each time I’m interviewed I get to reminisce about places I’ve visited, people I’ve travelled with, and extraordinary experiences I get to live. On that note, here are a few images I’ve not shared here on the blog.
Every photo evokes good feelings about the places I was visiting and brings a smile to my face. There’s a power that photography has that can bring a bit of happiness into my life even on days when I’m feeling down. In fact, I guess I could say that this happens ESPECIALLY on days when I’m feeling down. I am and remain grateful for each opportunity to explore the world and share those experiences with the people that join me on my tours or on the assignments that I get.
I often forget that I have seen so much variety when it comes to the subject matter I photograph. Nature and landscape, historic sites, wildlife, culture, and modern day architectural marvels. Yup, in a word… Awesome!
The places, people, or animals that I photograph have a unique story and that story is sometimes more about what happens behind the scenes or even directly to who is standing behind the camera. I love that about photography.
Aaron and I get into this and much more in the podcast and I hope that you find it interesting to get some background info on what it took for me to get to do this kind of work and why I love doing it.
