Journal entry #15 – The People of Tasmania
As I sit on the plane returning to SF I feel deeply saddened as though a part of my heart has been left in Tasmania. My love for this island does not route from the expected such as sensational landscapes, magical forests, exotic wildlife, but lies in the extraordinary people that I was blessed to meet.
My love of travel is fueled by exposure to various cultures and my love of a country is dependent upon the nature of its people. In my life I have never found a place full of such beautiful people that made me feel safe, welcome, comfortable and embraced. I felt accepted without reservation, judgement or suspicion, which is not always the case when you have a huge camera hanging around your neck. Tasmanians are open people who are kind, generous and willing to share their lives. There is a pureness to them that I haven’t been able to find anywhere in the world. They give because they want to, because they have open hearts and minds and they expect nothing in return. The nature of those I was fortunate to meet has truly affected my life and will undoubtfully have a profound affect on me and the way I live my life.
YOU ARE INVITED TO VIEW MY TASMANIA IMAGES that placed 1st Place at WPPI album competition.

Photography by: MARCUS BELL
As a photographer, I look to other photographers for inspiration. When I need a little inspiration for weddings, I often turn to Marcus Bell. I admire Marcus’s work because of its purist nature and the way his love of photography shines through. He has an amazing ability to capture both the beauty of his subjects and the scope of their environment.
I’ll never forget the first time I met Marcus. I was very new to photography and a bit star-struck by some of the leading photographers. We were at WPPI and he introduced himself and I had to pause a minute–”THE Marcus Bell?” I was surprised by his down-to-earth nature and humble attitude. He has a wonderful spirit and does amazing work.
