Alex Washburn

My name is Alex Washburn and I am a travel obsessed photo editor always planning the next adventure

Photography, travel and storytelling have guided my personal and professional trajectories for most of my life. I would categorize myself as a lifelong creative with an interest in business strategy and a gift for unique problem solving.

After nearly a decade in journalism I transitioned to the corporate world and helped coordinate photographic efforts at Viator (TripAdvisor) for two years. Those two years were fantastic and I enjoyed working with some of the most talented travel photographers and photojournalists on the planet. I mean, How could you not?

After parting ways from Viator in 2020 I was inspired by my personal experiences to create Travelite Photography 

I still freelance for editorial clients and consult on Digital Asset Management (I received my certificate in DAM from Rutgers University at the beginning of 2021). 

I rarely use the words can't or impossible.
