travel Alyssa began her career as a travel photographer about three years ago. Different than her portrait work, these images are primarily taken in color with a digital camera. Travel photography for Alyssa is about capturing the culture, people and landscape of a destination and portraying a story. What I love about travel photography is it gives me a purpose to really go out there and explore the countries I visit. We so often breeze through life; exploring with my camera in tote, forces me to slow down and truly taking it all in. I approach travel images with the same honest, respectful approach as my portrait work. Many of these images I think about long after I have left the country. I hope some of these images draw you in to slow down and take a closer look also.
