About

I travel to experience life not as I know it, but to connect to it, as it exists, untouched in a place that is new to me.

I travel the world to meet people, see places, watch, listen & learn, write, take pictures & share. 

My dream is that you see and image here that sparks a dream for you. 

If you would like to put that dream on a wall in your home, please visit my print gallery here.

If you are interested in turning your dream into reality, my company dream merchants can help, here.

Stories

People To People 

At the heart of my photography and media presentations is my belief that the most profound travel experiences in life are born in the relationships we create with the people we meet along the way.

 

We find comfort in our personal bubbles and it is easy for that space to become a dark vacuum, a place where new daylight doesn't freely shine. It only takes one small light to break that darkness, and it is that same light that I use to see, experience and capture life as it reflects off the people and places I photograph. My intention is to put forth an expressive image that tells a life story as it unfolds is a way that is candid, mindful and purposeful. 

 

The stories in my landscape and street images are rooted in human history. My wildlife images are usually taken with others involved, whether they be travel guests, guides, drivers, hosts or fellow photographers.  My favorites are the candid images of the people I meet along my journey. They are usually the most fascinating and interesting people.

As an artist, I am proud to share my images and those of other artists along the way on GenesJourney.com. My hope is that you will find inspiration in my work to adventure beyond the vacuum and create new relationships in your life.
