WORLDLY SMILES #FRIFOTOS

#FRIFOTOS : SMILES

As a world-traveller, travel journalist and specialist in emerging destination portrait photography, people are my passion.

The most inspiring aspect of travel for me is seeing a beautiful natural smile. Irrespective of age, gender, location, culture, surroundings or environment, a beautiful smile transcends all barriers. It’s the one common language we can all speak, share and understand.

A motto I have whilst travelling is, ‘It costs nothing to smile – a smile is free and the best way to express your inner warmth towards a stranger.’ I use this everywhere. And it works wonders.

For #FriFotos today, the theme os #Smiles. Below is a collection from some of my emerging destination travels to date, many from 2013 so far.
