I am fundraising for what I need to build my Travel Photography portfolio, so that I may someday make my passion my full-time job. Please support me, and share with friends!
I am a Travel Photographer. Until recently, it has been very difficult for me to be able to say that, because I felt like I hadn't seen enough of the world to deserve a claim to that title. So far, in addition to seeing half of the United States, I have been to Italy, Iceland, Ireland, and the UK. Being 22, I understand that that's more than most people my age have been lucky enough to see, but there is still so much more of the world that I intend to explore. I am pursuing an Associate's Degree in Photography, and once I reach that goal, I aspire to get a Bachelor's Degree in Anthropology from UCSD. These two degrees will work together in perfect harmony for what I plan on doing career-wise; I will be able to study beautiful and unique people and the cultures they come from, and will have the skill required to photograph them in a dignifying and flattering manner. As a full-time college student, I only have time for self-employment as a Freelance Photographer, so my income is sporatic and is often spent on paying off my debts. I would like to be able to travel as often as possible; to take small trips around the US during breaks between semesters, and to visit at least one new country every year. I am hard-working and determined, and I will see more of the world, whether it is through my own self-funding, or through the generous donations of my supporters. That being said, I would greatly appreciate any help. Traveling is very costly, and in addition to plane tickets, lodging, and the other travel-related expenses, I am in desperate need of new camera equiptment. I am currently shooting with a mid-grade camera, and would like to upgrade to a professional model, and to buy several lenses to go along with it. I may not have extensive travel experience, or a great deal of professional camera equiptment, but I have passion, and I have talent, and for that reason, I am a Travel Photographer. This is what I want to spend the rest of my life doing, and I will greatly appreciate help from anyone who supports my dream, and my career.
