Lover of travel, passionate about photography, planning to experience the world…..just a few quick things about me. I am Shelly Priest. Welcome to my blog. My blog is here to share my experiences and photography. Here you can find travel tips, and photography lessons and challenges that I come across with each new adventure.
I am a mother of 3, step-mother to 3 more….yes, we are similar to the Brady Bunch only we have 4 boys and 2 girls. My partner, Jason, is my most frequent travel companion unless I travel with other photographers. For some reason, he doesn’t like to travel with my friends….especially if it involves any activity. He says that photographers hiking is walking for 5 minutes and taking photos for 20.
My photographic adventure started with my first camera when I was 9 – a Kodak 110 Instamatic. With this camera I won an award at our local fair for a photo I took of a black swan. Since then I was rarely seen without my camera. Fast forward quite a few years and I started accepting paid jobs for weddings and family photos and I now shoot sports – specifically action shots. Now that I am in a position to travel more (my dad got me hooked when I was younger), I strive to capture all I experience during those excursions. Come along with me and explore the world through my photos!
