Mike Goodman, one of New England’s most highly awarded photographers, is passionate about photo-travel. He has been sharing his photo trips for decades in outstanding NECCC Conference showcase presentations and to standing-room-only crowds in photography clubs across the New England region. So, when Mike suggests that “there are many dimension to consider when you travel with the primary ntent to take great photos,” it pays to listen closely. Should you plan your own trip or join a tour? If you do your own trip, where do you start? How do you prepare? And, most important, how do you get the best possible photos while you’re traveling? What are the “dos and don’ts?”
“Hit the road” with Mike as he shares many of the key ideas and lessons he’s learned about capturing great travel photos on his trips, all illustrated in superb, short travel photo essays from his trips to Myanmar (Burma), above the arctic circle in Norway, Death Valley and Palouse Country in Washington State.

Mike’s not-to-be-missed program is a definite highlight of this year’s Click Conference.
Michael began taking pictures as his high school’s photographer in West Texas and has continued ever since. Over the years, his images have been published in books, calendars, music albums and on the web. He resides now in Exeter, N.H., and has won numerous international awards in juried shows for his photography including the Boston Globe’s Annual Photography Contest. His work has been exhibited overseas as well as in the New England area. Michael was president of the Boston Camera Club, one of America’s oldest photographic societies, is a current member of the Gateway Camera Club, the Seacoast Camera Club and Camera Naturalists, an invitation only wildlife photographer’s association. He has judged international photographic salons as well as at camera clubs throughout the region. While largely self-taught, he had the privilege to study with Galen Rowell, renowned outdoor photographer, in Berkeley California. Besides teaching photography, Michael frequently delivers multi-media photographic shows (his favorite activity) at business and photographic conferences such as the annual New England Camera Club Council conferences (with over 1000 attendees) and the Photographic Society of America (PSA) using images he has taken from his extensive travels around the world.
