  1. Will you be coming to New York.?

    Thank you

      Unfortunately I won’t be coming to New York anytime soon, not for the travel show, at least. I will be in Chicago and Santa Clara over the next month or so, however.

      I haven’t recorded these presentations, either, but I probably should.

      Thanks for your interest.


      • Hey Ralph,

        Nice to hear back from you…. May I suggest that you get in touch with B&H Photo
        & Adorama.. they and others have continuous lectures by infamous photographers like yourself.

        Im sure you’d do well !!!
        Please do keep me on your mailing list if you have one…

        & even though I didn’t buy it.. I think your shooting list, app is ingenious
        Congratulations on that creation… awesome…

        I truly enjoyed your interview on Spain… thought what you said about deriving the most
        from a location was great advise for any type of traveller…

        Stay passionate


        • RalphVelasco says:

          Thanks, Steven, I’ve thought about approaching B&A and Adorama, just haven’t gotten around to it, but thanks for the suggestion. How’d you hear about me? Was it on the Amateur Traveler?

          • Hey Ralph

            I strongly suggest that you contact B&H & Adorama…

            B& H gets a strong regular group & if youre here for a week they might be able to put you on twice in a week
            You’ll definately be able to sell your Spain Trip & your app….

            I heard of you via LinkedIn that led me to your interview with Amateur traveller…

            All the best
