Fine arts photographer Tim Romano conspired to convince his wife and family that in order to produce more and better work he must essentially tackle his vices head-on in the field of play. This hard earned license to roam has led to assignments in Alaska, Chile, Argentina, New Zealand, Russia, Bahamas, Mexico, British Columbia and extensively in the US. Romano is a frequent contributor to Field & Stream and co-writes the magazine’s fly-fishing blog, http://www.fieldandstream.com/blogs/flytalk.
