Sunset from the Ivory Tower

Sunset from the Ivory Tower

What to do with travel photos?

What to do with travel photos?

People often ask me, what I do for a living. Well, not much. I travel and write and making photos/videos. Does that pay the bills? Yes, it can pay bills. As a world citizen I have a nomadic lifestyle and with that comes the digital work. Among the things I do I found a way to make all those hundreds of photos create an income for me.
