On this journey of mine, as the love of travel has taken over, I've silently yearned to visit all 7 continents. Was there ever a plan of what to do or see on each, possibly. Each continent contains a jewel of its own, and much like an oyster, must be opened to gaze upon the wonder inside.
The Wanderlust Series started as a small goal of having photo shoots to track my travels around the world. After eventually printing some of my images, I gained an appreciation for their physical presence and decided to create a book to house it all.
A challenge from a colleague set me on my current path to completion. I was content with the locations I'd already visited and photographed in, but wanted to add a few more so the book could be produced late 2017. "You should cover all 7 continents," he said, "you've already had shoots in Antarctica, a continent most people will never visit."
So here I am. The book has been postponed to this year because I have two continents left to visit, at least two photo shoots left to do, hundreds of photos to edit, and a book to design. It will be a lot of work, it will cause me to have many sleepless nights, and it will also cost me a pretty penny. In the end it's my dream, my goal, and I'm doing it on my own, in my own way.
P.S. As I write this, I'm in an Airbnb in La Paz, Bolivia on the continent of South America. Then there was one...
