Merzouga Desert, Morocco - Ian Stevenson Photography

About the Artist

I am a native of Santa Barbara, California, and currently reside in Ithaca, NY. I love to travel, and have backpacked all over Europe and Latin America - a big source of inspiration for my photography. I am intrigued by other cultures and new experiences, and excited to share them with others!

I think traveling is a great way to expand my awareness and learn about the world. It allows me to meet many amazing people and to stay open-minded, two things that are of great importance to me.

About the Equipment

People are often surprised when I tell them that I use a basic digital camera, the Canon PowerShot A720 IS. As I do a lot of travel and candid photography, I prefer a camera that I can keep in my pocket and always have with me. A large bulky camera around my neck slows me down and can be an invitation to theft in dodgey areas and foreign countries.
