This article is about finding my purpose in World Travel and Landscape Photography.

The Call to Explore

The spark that ignited my passion for exploration and photography was an innate curiosity about the world’s wonders. From the bustling cityscapes to the serene wilderness, the call to explore and capture the beauty of God’s creation beckoned me.

The realization of my purpose unfolded against the backdrop of a sunrise over the Grand Canyon, where the play of colors painted the sky in hues that transcended the ordinary. It was in those quiet moments of connection with nature that I felt the presence of something greater—a divine force that resonated through the rustling leaves, the flowing rivers, and the towering mountains.

Armed with a camera, I embarked on a mission to capture the essence of God’s glorious creation. From the ethereal glow of the Northern Lights in Northern Minnesota to the majestic beauty of Banff National Park in Alberta Canada, my lens became a conduit for translating the sublime into tangible imagery. Each click was not just a photograph but a testament to the magnificence of the world we inhabit.

As my journey evolved, so did my purpose. It became clear that my role extended beyond being a mere spectator; it was about sharing the art of seeing with others. Through workshops, in person individual classes, and online tutorials, I aimed to empower aspiring photographers and fellow travelers to unveil the beauty hidden in plain sight. Teaching became a way to pay forward the wisdom gleaned from my experiences.

Finding Fulfillment in Purpose

The convergence of travel, photography, and teaching led to a profound sense of fulfillment. Whether standing on the precipice of a canyon, capturing the dance of light on a serene lake, or guiding others to discover their own photographic voice, every moment affirmed my purpose statement: “World traveler landscape photographer seeing, experiencing, and capturing God’s glorious creation, and teaching others to do the same!


The journey to define my purpose as a world traveler and landscape photographer has been a testament to the transformative power of exploration, creativity, and connection. Through the lens of my camera, I have witnessed the divine symphony that plays across the Earth’s canvas. As I continue to explore, experience, and capture the breathtaking beauty that surrounds us, my heart is dedicated to sharing this profound journey with fellow photographers and travelers, inspiring them to discover the extraordinary in the ordinary and to teach others to do the same.
