I make most of my money selling licensing and prints to niche sectors in travel and tourism. Lots of prints. Then I use the narrative I built in the adventure brand to appeal and open dialogue with pretty much anybody and anything.

So, kind of a photographer, kind of a travel writer, kind of a salesperson..but I believe that anyone in any business of any sort, in any occupation of any sort, is essentially a salesperson.

I have no idea what my title is.

I take pretty pictures of women...

I have had an interest in photography, mostly as a casual photographer, since my teens but NEVER even considered it as a profession. Spent my "working" years in manufacturing ... machinist, draftsman, and the last 15+ as a QA Tech.
For the last 10 years or so, I have thought many times ... "If I knew then, what I know now, I WOULD have tried to become a professional photographer" ... successful? Who knows! but I know I would have enjoyed it much more!
Now fully retired (3 months ago) my goal for 2014 is to take my photography to where ever it may go! Here's hoping!

Mechanical engineer, though for the past two years have been on a backpacking trip, haven't worked at all! Of course have done plenty of photography and am now focusing on ways to get some cash for that to keep me going
