Hi. My name is Gregory Richard Goodman.

I’m a traveler, photographer & storyteller

Above all else, I believe that if you follow your heart and your passion, opportunities will present themselves.

That’s why I’ve spent the past decade creating this site; because, sharing my passion is what I love most.

 

I also…

  • was born in New York City
  • lived in Chiang Mai, Thailand
  • love pizza above all other food
  • have visited 44 countries…
  • …28 of them with my wife, Carrie

and I…

  • use a Nikon D810 as my primary camera
  • prefer to take the train
  • hit my head a lot while traveling (I’m 6’3″)
  • have a James Bond Web site
  • spent my 4th birthday atop the Eiffel Tower

This is my story…

Indian tourists look on in disbelief as I masterfully moonwalk in front of the Taj MahalOnce upon a time, I worked behind a stuffy desk and longed for my two weeks of annual vacation time. Finally, I took a leap of faith.

My girlfriend, Carrie, was volunteering in Nicaragua. I quit my job, sold my stuff, and joined her.

My plan was to visit for two weeks; I stayed seven months.

In the years since, we have traveled near and far, lived in the USA and Thailand, supported each other’s dreams and said “I do!

This brings me back to my belief about following your passions.

I’ll admit it; sometimes my life exists in a tug-of-war between two worlds. On one hand, I love the stability and comfort of a traditional life.

Yet, I also love spending my days creating photographic art, writing stories, updating this Web site, putting myself out there and seeing what comes of it.

That’s why balance is so important.

Carrie and I now live in Santa Cruz, California. We have a beautiful baby boy named Bodhi Daniel Goodman, and are enjoying every moment of life. Having stability doesn’t mean sacrificing my passions. If anything, it allows me the freedom to continue pursuing them.

For example…

Wiang-Kum-Kam-ruins-in-Chiang-Mai
My photographic work has been featured in galleries, magazines, books, Web sites, newspapers and exhibitions around the world.

In 2012, I was hired by Samsung to present my work at Photokina – the world’s largest photo trade fair.

A year later, I stared in a National Geographic TV show about South Korea.

Most recently, my photography was commissioned by the Sydney Airport and displayed in the International Terminal.

While I’m incredibly proud of these personal accomplishments, I wouldn’t be where I am today without the amazing support I receive from friends like you.

So, from the bottom of my heart, I say thank you!


Enough about me; I want to get to know YOU!

What are your passions?
Where was your favorite vacation?
Can I see some of your photography?

I love meeting people and cherish the friendships that have formed through this site; so, please find me on Facebook and say hi!

Thanks for visiting and have a beautiful day: wherever you are.
