About The Photographer

 

 

Ian of Ianbarinphotography is a Multimedia Content Specialist. Hailing from Santa Barbara, California, he is also a traveler, creative, photographer and storyteller. I met him during his travel to Siem Reap, Cambodia – the gateway to Angkor Wat and had a night full conversations about our travels and life experiences. Ian is just so generous to allow me to make use of his masterful photographs on this blog post. In fact, after he had shown me these photos, I finally decided to make a flight booking to Myanmar – yes, instant inspiration!
