Oh The Places You Will Go

Well it’s almost the end of 2011. It’s been a year, hasn’t it? Time now though to start looking towards 2012 and I need your help.

Each year for the past 5 or so years I’ve sat down and tried to come up with some places I wanted to shoot and things I wanted to do. I’ve criss-crossed the country several times and you can see most of the photos from these trips on my website.

This year is a little different. I want to enlist your help in coming up with an itinerary for the year. In other words, I want you to treat me just like every woman in my life has: Tell me where to go.

My goal is to visit, photograph and write about as many of the places that you would want to see if you had the time. I’m not looking for generic places like cities, but specific locales. For instance, if you wanted to visit the St Louis Arch, don’t just say, “St Louis”…be specific.

Since I’ve got some shoots already in the works I’ll take your ideas as they come and try to incorporate them into already planned gigs.

Enough of the talk…post on my Facebook status page thingy where would be a place that YOU would go? Be creative. Think outside the box. What would be your #1 site to see?
