What is vacation photography for me? I don't know. I've always taken my vacations with others, and I've never felt completely satisfied with my photography during those trips. Some may suggest I take my own personal photography vacations, so I can do whatever I want. That might work for some, but not for me. I travel to exotic and faraway places for work all the time, and I'm no happier or relaxed. During my last trip to Bangkok and Hong Kong, I was exhausted and stressed, although creatively it was a great experience. My conclusion? I don't think I'll ever be satisfied with my photography while on vacation, but I'm okay with it. I have both the privilege and the drawbacks of taking pictures for work, and so I'll have to accept both the good and bad that comes with it. I will continue to take photographs no matter where I am or what I'm doing because that's what I do. I'm a photographer so I take pictures. Thanks for visiting and happy shooting.
