Hi – I am Phil, aka 420phototours, based in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts.
My Mad Skills: My professional background includes engineering/coding/product development/marketing/photography/writing and publishing
Currently: I am an Author and Publisher of eBooks and paperbacks available on Amazon.com and expanded distribution, including 4 books of photography. Ask me what it would take to turn your photos into a published, print-on-demand, book of photography that you have been thinking about for so long!
Studio/Gallery: The Studio/Gallery is slowly gaining steam, specializing in glamour/boudoir and local/regional travel promotions
Pothead: I have been a responsible cannabis user for decades. Legalize it! Everywhere!
I started doing these 420friendly tours for a couple of reasons:
Money I am retired, too lazy to work and too scared to steal, so I need to make a little money to keep from having to eat cat food
Destiny I have been getting stoned and scouting for photos like this for decades and realistically I probably will keep doing doing them whether you join me or not
Road Trip! I especially enjoy photo road trips with smoking buddies – always lots of laughs and good times
Personally At a personal/artistic/spiritual/soulful level, 420 has allowed me to keep open the Doors of Perception (A. Huxley) and to seek, find, and deeply experience some really beautiful places and take some wonderful photos. I can take you there
Out of the Cannabis Closet I am ready to let my 420 flag fly, after being stigmatized and criminalized for decades
