Hobbies & Interests
Photography (the most obvious one)
My passion is for photography. STUDIO 1250 wouldn’t exist today if it wasn’t for my unending passion for the art. If I wasn’t a full-time photographer, I would still continue to pursue photography as a hobby to capture the life that surrounds me every day.
I love traveling to new places. One of my favorite trips has been a cross country camping road-trip following the historic Route 66 from beginning to end, driving over 7,500 miles. I have also traveled to Paris, France; Venice, Italy; Ireland; and Thailand. I’m always searching for the next big adventure. I’m also a FAA licensed, Private Pilot. I enjoy soaring above the cities and shorelines and catching an unobstructed view of an evening sunset.
Enjoying the Outdoors
I like experiencing the great outdoors. I have spent a lot of time hiking in Alaska and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I also enjoy exploring the Historical Plantations of Charleston in the warm summer weather. My interest in the wild outdoors is also greatly linked to my passion for photography.
I love traveling to new places. I’ve traveled to Paris, France; Venice, Italy; Ireland; and Thailand. My most recent trip was another cross-country road-trip following the historic, Route 66 highway. I spent nearly a month on the road, camping and living out of my Jeep Wrangler. I traveled from Charleston to Chicago, then from Chicago to San Monta, and then back to Charleston. I saw many great things and took thousands of photos. One of my favorite places on my trip was when I was camping on the edge of a cliff in New Mexico overlooking an Indian reservation.
