I love to travel for work. Love it. It's not without its difficulties, of course—just last week I spent an entire night in the Toronto airport because my late afternoon flight home was canceled and there were no hotels available anywhere (ironically because of the conference I was there to photograph)—but there's nothing better than getting out of Seattle once in a while for a fresh perspective. It really gets my creative juices in a blender. (That's a good thing, in case that wasn't clear.)
Over the past year and a half, I've been so, so fortunate to do more work travel than ever before. Domestically, work has taken me to Palo Alto, Chicago (twice), San Francisco (lost count), Miami, Orlando, Portland, and San Diego (for the Comic Con, no less!). Internationally, I've been to Toronto, Barcelona, Helsinki, Singapore, and Nairobi and Nanyuki in Kenya. It has been nothing short of amazing. Kenya was an especially unique experience, and one I'll never forget. I've made space on my website for some images from that job, and I'd encourage you to have a look if you are interested. It's a great story.
Truthfully, each trip deserves its own blog entry...but instead, I'm just going to post a very few highlights. These aren't images I shot for clients, but rather quirky people and things of interest to me along the way.
