I’ve been on the road for the last month for Hyatt Resorts, with a few editorial travel jobs in the mix- Lake Tahoe, Colorado, Mendocino, right now the Gulf Coast of Florida, next week New York. I’ll stop in San Francisco for quick visit with my favorite crew- my husband and my dog, then I’m off to Oahu for a lifestyle shoot, and then staight to Tulum, Mexico via a hellaciously indirect flight. It’s everything you would imagine- fun, exhausting, stimulating to be in such different places, lovely to go from snowstorms to tropical waters, interesting to get a glimpse of such different communities and landscapes. Give me a shout if you want to meet me in NY next week, I’m taking meetings. Check out my Instagram feed for more.

happy winter!

Winter solstice is here, and I’m buried in deadlines, post-production, estimates and lining things up for shoots in January and February.  Somehow I imagined that I’d have wrapped things up for the year by now, and I’d spend my days taking my dog to the beach, making fig jam, organizing my office and updating my portfolio. I can’t wait to head to Colorado and then British Columbia in a few days to play in the snow, relax a bit and shoot some personal work. 2010 was fantastic- full of great assignments,  inspiring travels around the world and close to home, and collaborations with lots of  really talented, lovely people.  Over the last few years, the unpredictability of being a photographer and the stress that goes along with never knowing what is on the horizon has slowly transformed into a lifestyle that works really well for me and  makes me grateful to be a photographer.  I love telling stories- capturing a sense of place and the essence of a moment, and I am really fulfilled by the glimpses my camera affords me of people and places I would never know otherwise. Here’s to a great 2011!
