tips, stories and technical information about photos or travel
Welcome to our blog!
Spending a month in Egypt and Jordan on our honeymoon, years ago, propelled our joint travels around this fascinating globe. And photography, while at first a consuming hobby, became paramount in our lives, inspiring us to leave successful careers in engineering and speech pathology to pursue commercial/editorial and travel photography.
In the past we led small groups on creative photography tours that ventured waaay off the beaten path with our old company Unique Photo Tours,LLC.
But life changes and we moved on to different ventures. Kim now travels the world capturing images for international travel stock agencies RobertHarding.com and AgeFotoStock.com. As all photographers should, she continues to educate herself with all aspects of lighting, composition, working with people of all cultures, post-processing and extensive key wording.
David has been a professional photographer for many years and has spent them honing his skills which he employs in both retail and commercial photography. His website BravoPhotoArtand blog: BravoStudiosBlogshowcase some of his work. He's now venturing out into publishing a course that breaks down photography for people who consider themselves "avid beginners". We'll post about this as it becomes ready.
Kim still works part time with traumatic brain-injured/stroke patients, researches new destinations, and continues creating amazing itineraries for our own trips.
David's photographs have appeared on billboards, ad campaigns, in magazines & brochures and grace the walls of many valued clients. Kim's travel photos have appeared in conjunction with her travel articles both on-line and in print publications including American Photo, Global Magazine, Outpost Magazine, Transitions Abroad Magazine, Wanderlust Magazine, Weird World, and LIVE, a Latin American guidebook. She won 3rd place in National Geographic's World in Focus travel photography contest. Her winning photo of Bhutan's Tiger Nest appeared in the 2009 January issue of National Geographic Traveler magazine.
