Traveling and photographing the world I now have the opportunity to put my photos in book form. Tilt Shift Photography is a style of photos that plays tricks with your eyes. By making most of the photo out of focus and keeping the people in the photos in focus-the people appear to be minature.
The combination of travel and photography come together in this beautiful color photo book.
Tilt-Shift, What type of photography is that? people always ask me. How do I make people look so small or why do I make people look so small, simple…WE ARE. From my series “Tilt-Shift”ing the world you can see only a small piece of the world that I have seen. My passion to try and make the iconic places and structures that man desires to see and has for centuries traveled to see, is the same desire that drives me to go there and photograph them. I have been an avid photographer for over 25 years and have taken thousands of photographs of iconic buildings. I’ve had the pleasure to “X” off from a list that grows and grows. Life is too short and I agree with that simple statement. I have goals like every artist does and mine is to “X” off as many places around the world until I run out of places to see or I run out of time.
