Where did this business name come from and what does it mean?
I chose this name in 2005 to indicate the geographic extent that I am interested in. It also describes the elements of the business.
I understand that it is an unusual business name. It is sort of choppy and combines three disparate concepts.
The simple explanation is:
I don’t limit the photographic locations to one region. I will continue to work in places scattered around the planet – EARTH.
I make custom maps (and have an extensive professional background in geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing, landscape modeling, soil science, and map and graphic preparation) – MAP.
I have dedicated a great deal of time in the field over the last several years developing skills in artistic travel photography – PHOTO.
The business is an intersection of travel, map creation, and photography.
