Story
Tagline
the travel photographer
Introduction
Based in New York City, I am a freelance photographer specializing in documenting endangered cultures and traditional life ways of Asia, Latin America and Africa. My images, articles and photo features were published in various magazines, and my travel photographs were featured by some of the largest adventure travel companies in the United States and Great Britain, as well as in multinational corporations' art collections. My photographs have been acquired by the Standard Chartered’ Bank's permanent art collection.

I also organize and lead photo expeditions and workshops for photographers who share my enthusiasm for unusual cultures, uncommon locations and lesser known festivals.
