Travel Photographer

Photography gives me the opportunity to be a sports photographer, a wildlife photographer and, for this post, a travel photographer.  Where I put myself on assignment for a travel editor to tell stories about places I visit.  The following two photos are prime examples.

Remember the Storytelling Assignment?  While I do take the typical family photos while traveling and the “We were there” shots, telling a story about a place improves my online vacation galleries and slideshows to a point my family likes to see them. 🙂

Oh, yeah, I’ll be posting the first assignment of 2011 next Wednesday.

  1. Nice! The “other side” of Disney World… more quiet and relaxed than the hustle and bustle of the theme parks.

    • Disney resorts are called resorts for a very good reason. Though I have not spent a lot of my time at Disney World enjoying them, I did on my last trip and will again. The two pictured here are far from the parks and very peaceful and quiet with lots to do.

    That Riverside Mill photo is really effective, Scott. I, um, am not really a Disney World person, but even I can see the appeal of the surrey ride on the boardwalk!

    I’d like for Anna and I to ride one of those bikes, looks like fun. The boat in the water photo is beautiful, love the colors.

    **Sigh** Your sunshiney Florida shots make me wistful. Warm weather feels so far away.

    It looks a lot sunnier and warmer than my pictures. I guess the polarizer filter deepen the color of the sky. I wonder if we could visit the resort without staying there.

    • It was much warmer than your recent trip. Temps in the 80’s and humid. The polarizer filter does just that, Nye. By cutting down the glare just like polarizer sunglasses. It cuts down on reflective surfaces like water and glass, too.

      You are free to visit any resort. In fact, it’s called ‘resort hopping’. My wife and I do it often. Many have restaurants with great theming and different cuisines to enjoy.
