Iceland seems to be on everybody's bucket list right now and, after a flying visit to photograph it's spectacular, other-worldly scenery, I can see why. The island nation isolated in the North Atlantic Ocean is unlike anywhere else I've been before.
Stockholm, Sweden's chic riverside capital, has to be one of my favorite places to visit as a photographer. Built on 14 islands connected by 57 bridges, each neighborhood possesses its own charm and distinct character.
I have always loved travel photography. My childhood room held travel posters and calendars with glossy photographs of the places I wanted to visit. I used to dream that someday my own photographs would be among them. In December, a box arrived on my doorstep filled with several calendars from the world’s largest calendar company, each with one or more of my travel photographs gracing the pages.
I have been in love with photography since my grandmother handed me a camera when I was 6 years old. But I never imagined that something I loved so much could turn into a career, allowing me to travel all over the world and see my images in magazines, newspapers, and websites across the globe.
