I began my photographic journey as a travel photographer. Soon after graduating from Georgetown University, I hit the road for a couple of years, journeying overland from Paris to Singapore and then by boat to the Philippines and Japan. I started my trip with a beautiful Nikon F and a couple of lenses. Unfortunately I was relieved of my gear on a train from Delhi to the Nepalese border. Still, I learned to apply the street philosophy of French master Cartier Bresson’s “decisive moment’ in taking a picture. His timeless universal images influenced me more than any other photographer. Travel and the photographic opportunities it presents are a way of life for me.
