CONQUERING CONTINENTS WITH A CANON LENS

I was born in 1953 in Omaha, Nebraska, and was among four siblings to wonderful parents. As with most Midwestern families in the US, home life was excellent and attention was properly given to the family. My parents were certainly not wealthy, but we did manage to go on little vacations around the US, including to Yellowstone Park, the Rocky Mountains, Chicago and the West Coast.

After my senior year of college in Nebraska, I married a local girl that had quite a unique fascination with travel, many times more than what was generally accepted. Soon, I realised that there was this big, huge world out there and too much of it to see in our short lifetime. All it took was one trip and I was hooked.

That was in 1978. Since then, I have made sure that travel has been one of the primary cornerstones of my life. I have travelled to over 80 countries over the years and all seven continents*. My current job in soft ware allowed me to move to Singapore in 2010, so now I can travel to many areas that were too costly to be visited from my home in San Diego.

I have had the fortune of being married to two fantastic women. My fi rst wife who gave me the travel bug passed away in 2005. Although we travelled extensively and shared wonderful adventures, I was considered the standard tour-type photographer with a basic fi lm camera. Upon her passing, I became more seriously involved in photography as not only a way to move forward, but also to capture the true wonderment the world has to off er, which so many of us do not take advantage of.

After I had started my photography and about 1.5 years later, I met Galina and we married in an exciting way we eloped to Las Vegas. Since that time in late 2007, she has been a blessing to me and has joined me in my travels and way of life. Russian-born, but a US citizen, she too has now expanded her artistic horizons by making exquisite clothes for dolls.

What is so interesting is that this happened because she discovered my fi rst wife's old dolls in a crate in my garage and it went on from there. So on I go, searching for my next destination.

Am I more passionate because of my life with travel, photography and the women I have met and loved? Absolutely!! And, most importantly, I truly believe that travel has made me a better person.
