I love being a photographer for many reasons. Through my viewfinder I am fortunate to experience breathtaking scenery, amazing wildlife, and the beauty of light in some spectacular locations, but one of the best perks of my job is the people I meet along the way.
Take time on your journeys, near or far, to talk to the locales. The conversations that you can strike up over a coffee, a dinner, or a walk around an old barn can lead to so many good things and even better people. Places are great but, quite often, it is people that make them memorable.
