Photography Road Trip With Family

Posted July 19th, 2012 by   |  Photography, Travel, Uncategorized  |  Permalink

My family and I went on a whirl-wind road trip this month throughout four different western states including Washington, Oregon, Nevada and California. We visited friends and family along the way while also spending time adventuring in Yosemite NP and San Francisco. I love these types of trips since they challenge me as a photographer. Most photographers struggle to create great images when traveling with friends and family. A few months back, I wrote an article on traveling with non-photographer companions ( and I sure used my own advice on this trip.

Here are some of the pics from our adventure.

    I was in Yosemite in May, but the photos by Ansel and Mike are much better than mine.
