ship fanatic qualified

“It isn’t that life ashore is distasteful to me.

But life at sea is better.”

SIR FRANCIS DRAKE

Ship buff, addict, smitten, guru, infatuated, fanatical, struck. I have been called them all. Maybe you are too. I am a photographer, author, and graphic designer. Obsessed with ships, the ocean and adventure, those who know me will qualify this spellbound sense of mine. Spend a few minutes on site2sea, and you'll see why.

“...photography; a means of expression,

like a brush, or a pen..."

I didn't pick up a camera until 2016 on my first QM2 crossing. As a designer and marketing consultant, I was always intrigued with photography but didn't have the tenacity to learn the technical aspect of using one. It took some time, and three crossings on QM2 to get the pictures right for my book, "Divine Crossings" (www.qm2divine.com). As of August 1st 2018, I will have crossed the Atlantic ten times.

Favorite ship: Queen Mary 2. There's simply nothing else out there that compares. She is the only ocean liner in the world. Discover why I just completed my fourth crossings here...
