Long before they were married, Ira took a photography class. From that point forward, he honed his photography skills. For decades, Ira was the Bornstein family’s unofficial photographer.
As technology has advanced, Ira has kept pace. He’s comfortable on city streets, the countryside or on ski slopes. While Sandy is busy writing down her observations, asking questions, and taking notes, Ira is shooting away.
For decades, they’ve worked as a team. In addition to assisting with the photos, Ira reviews and edits Sandy’s stories before they’re published.
Sandy and Ira are available to submit articles and photographs on assignment for editors. They are also open to speaking about the destinations that they’ve visited and life as an expat teacher. Inquiries can be made at firstname.lastname@example.org.
