Hi Travel Photographers!
The best time to take photos is when you are on vacation! You want the best photos ever and it's very easy to do. I am an art and photography teacher with Professional Teaching Certificates in CT and FL, teaching experience in New York, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts. My graphic background for 7 years was as a Yearbook advisor for the local high school, taking photos and doing the graphics from start to finish. I have done freelance graphic design work and calligraphy for many years using my photos as part of the design workflow. I have traveled all over the USA and 10 other countries. Some of my best photos were taken on holiday and then printed in a book or a calendar to give as gifts. Now is the time to prepare your photos, organize them and get them ready for your Travel Photobook! And here's a bonus if you are planning a trip to Disney in Florida - I live 10 mins. away and travel there every week. A great idea for a photoshoot, yes?

Freelance Artist and Photographer
Jan 1974 - Present
My Own Company

The past 20 years I have taught adults, college, high school and public school K-12 in various situations. I have been a leader in photography education and a Teacher Consultant with National Geographic. I am an expert Photoshop user and teach it to adults and teens as well. I have been recognized as an outstanding teacher and passionate artist. I could list all the places I've taught at but it's boring. All I know is that I love what I do and photography has been my love since I was 8 yrs. old and helping my Dad in the darkroom when photos were film based. My family is art oriented, my Dad a photographer and my Mom a painter and guitarist. I love to travel and was brought up in New York City where my Father would bring me to Greenwich Village to see paintings, meet and socialize with artists who are now in art history textbooks. Art has been and continues to be my life.
