Traveling the world is among the finest of investments one can make into the quality of their lives. Because not only does traveling to new regions of the world open your mind, but it allows you to see how others live, what they think, how they think, what they believe in, and where they’ve been and are going. But beyond the external experience, travel can take you places within yourself you never knew existed, including but not limited to simply how you think.
The natural world is a beautiful and sacred place, and when one has time to simply wander without a time limit or an obligation, the mind is freed to take in every sense, feeling, scent and detail, and through that experience, one grows and connects with that which we evolved from. Humans have greatly separated ourselves from the way of the natural world, and only over the past few hundred years have we strayed so far away that one might argue we’ve become aliens on our own planet. Modern lifestyles have us running ourselves ragged without a moment to breath and contemplate the meaning and truths of life, which has affected us in ways few seem to realize.
In modern cooking, new innovations are coming out all of the time, changing the way we prepare and cook our food, and sometimes even changing how we look at the way we eat. It’s an amazing time to be alive, especially when you can healthily fry food with hot air and with absolutely no oil.

The life of a photographer isn’t all quick snaps and recognition. A photographer’s life is more about the moments in between the images, because it almost always takes ten times the work to achieve the quality of imagery that makes one of professional quality. You have to learn the gear, the lighting, the technicals, the post-production and beyond, and then you have to lug your gear around from place to place, and if you’re like me, you roam the wilderness for the best shot possible.
There are some hobbies that become boring sooner or later but nature photography isn't one of them. You can never see a photographer who gets tired of photography nature. The reason is very simple: nature is beautiful, awesome, unique, and dynamic. You can never get enough. When you become a nature photographer, there is always a reason to pick up your camera and take some beautiful pictures that will blow people's mind.
