Veteran Michael C. Snell says he is a travel photographer, but is keen to point out the simple description is hardly sufficient. Shooting professionally for almost two decades, Snell has discovered the job requires him to be constantly flexible, always on his toes and full of never-ending curiosity for everything around him. He is based in Kansas but has achieved a worldwide audience and impressive client list including National Geographic, Travel + Leisure, USA Today and Forbes.com. Originally working as an art director and photo buyer for a state travel and tourism department, Snell felt the creative call to become a freelance photographer and has never looked back. Aside from his extensive travel experience both across the country and around the world, he and his wife began the creative agency Shade of the Cottonwood as a way to meet clients needs in an intimate, one-on-one basis.

Whether shooting hot air balloons over Egypt or discovering hidden treasures on the back roads in the sprawling state of Kansas, Michael Snell is a man who finds the wonder in what’s before him. He’s also got an impressive photography kit to go along with him on all his adventures. We asked him about Kansas, branching out on your own and why a Tamron lens is perfect for just about any shooting situation he comes across.
