At first I thought this was going to come about back in July of this year, but things have worked out a little differently. Tomorrow I am heading out for a six month deployment aboard the USS Sterett (DDG 104). Part of my duties involve being the Assistant Public Affairs Officer and Command Photographer. I will be extremely busy working on projects like the cruise book and other media-related items.
I am looking forward to the trip, although I will miss my family and friends terribly. It’s hard to beat getting paid to travel the world, take photos, and shoot video.
I hope to visit some great places (some of which I have been to before, and some I haven’t) and be able to experience new things and get some great photographic opportunities.
That being said, the blog here will be a little scarce over the next several months. I will update when I can, but it will only be when I am in port and able to get WiFi somewhere. I will post images and experiences of how some of the gear I use has held up.
Thank you to all my readers and I hope that you enjoy sharing in my travels and adventures until I’m back at home again.
All the best,
