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 while helping drive DAM initiatives. My time at Viator was fantastic and I enjoyed working with some of the most talented travel photographers and photojournalists on the planet but our team was dissolved in May of 2020 as a portion of the company's overall pandemic response.

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

Apart from Travelite, I still freelance for editorial clients and consult on Digital Asset Management projects. I received my certificate in Digital Asset Management from Rutgers University at the beginning of 2021.
