For my day job, I am the Director of Internet Technology for a hotel franchising company. My primary job duty is website development and content management for 250+ budget hotels. My skill set as a photographer has not gone un-noticed, and I have been on a number of road trips to visit our hotels to photograph them for web and some print use.
All of my road trips have been in the Southeast – Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina and South Carolina; however, coming up in a few weeks, I will be heading out west for a two week road trip through central and northern California. I am looking at twelve days of driving 1900+ miles to visit and take pictures of 24 hotels. I have managed to arrange my trip to include drives along the Pacific Coast Highway, and a half day visit to Yosemite National Park.
My friend Brian Garret does a goodly amount of travel and has become quite adept at photo and travel blogging. See his website at packingacanon.info to see what I mean. I need to get Brian to share his workflow with me so I can produce a better blog for this trip than I did for my January trip to Yiwu, China.
So coming up in May, I will have a blog about traveling to Northern California.
