My favorite part of the job was going to places I had never been, meeting people I otherwise would have never met, and overcoming photographic challenges like difficult lighting, tight spaces, and bringing to life the written reviews for each venue.

My perfect day in Florence would start by going to a small café for a cappuccino, followed by walking aimlessly around the city with camera in hand, eating dinner at a nice local restaurant, and going to an art exhibit at one of the many wonderful museums or galleries that Florence has to offer. The best way to finish it off is in good company with good conversation over a good glass of wine.
