lonely planet philippines magazine - on assignment: TURKEY || travel photographer

 Upload from April 20, 2012

i am not one to boast, or gloat or brag. at all.

but i figure with my 40th birthday a week away and the timing of this all, that this was perhaps one good reason to do such things. :)

in november i was asked by a dear friend and fellow photographer, pilar tuason, if i would go to turkey for an on-assignment shoot. the feature story. the cover.

whoa. huge assignment. but totally up my alley.

so i joyfully accepted.

and yesterday i got my hands on a hot little issue of ISSUE 10 - the TURKEY issue of lonely planet philippines magazine.

to be honest - it’s so freaky to see my picture of myself, and 17, yes SEVENTEEN! pages, of photos of our trip. and just in time for my 40th birthday.

this is the first time my travel photography has been featured..and i’m hoping this is but the beginning of this exciting adventure!  this in itself has made my 40th birthday so rad. <insert happy sigh>

of course i posted the pdf files of the article. so today i am posting ACTUAL photos of the magazine that i took on my patio. not the greatest background…but hey. :)

so many thanks…to pilar for asking me to go…to lonely planet philippines for entrusting me…to madie for being an awesome travel companion as we documented this trip. to everyone in turkey - osman, ensar, yucel and all the other amazing others - who made our trip nothing less than fantastic.

and to my lover…who always believes in me more than i believe in me, and who pushes me to be more than i think i can be. xo

here’s issue 10. it’s so lovely :)
