There’s still so much more to be written about what we’ve done and seen and heard in 2011; we’ll likely be working on stories well into 2012.
For now, here’s a quick sampling of some recently published work and other professional updates:
Francisco was one of 50 semi-finalists in Smithsonian’s Aerial America Contest. The photo was taken this summer at Migis Lodge, a resort that’s well-loved by its many repeat visitors, whose families have “summered” at Migis for several generations.
My feature article about Mexico City and writer Daniel Hernandez appears in the December-January issue of the magazine Centro y Sur. Several of my photos also appeared in the article.
My part of the Fodor’s Puerto Rico 2012 guide has been submitted; I’m looking forward to seeing the printed book next year. Though doing the research for the guide always takes a few months off my lifespan, working with my editor there is always a positive experience.
Matador released its first book, an anthology of travel quotes and exceptional travel photographs. It’s called No Foreign Lands and I’m the associate editor. (Hint: It makes a lovely holiday gift. No, I don’t make any money off it, but the photographers do, so show them some love.)
Lots of projects and publications on the horizon- a feature on the First Lady of Belize for MS. Magazine, a couple of book projects, and some collaborations I’m excited about.
