When I was starting this profession all I heard were stories of people traveling out of the country getting great photos of lands far away.
If you haven’t discovered it yet, we live in a beautiful area. You can get great photos 10 feet from your door. The most relaxing thing I do is step outside into my backyard and just look.
Have you ever just stopped and looked at your world? It’s a pretty amazing place.
If you like to photograph wildlife, there is no shortage. If you like to create portraits, there is no lack of character in this area.
So, the next time you get the traveling bug for photography, make sure you’ve checked out your own backyard first.
