Designer, Artist, and Editor in Toronto, Canada
Tzvi Lexier has had a camera in his hand for as long as he can remember, and he considers himself to be a lifelong photographer. A basic automatic point-and-shoot camera, given to him by his grandfather, was his very first camera. His family was overjoyed and willing to pose for him; they struck stances that made the images appear candid, they happily posed for birthday photos, and they struck every other imaginable pose! The encouragement he received from his family was essential in encouraging NAME to pursue photography.
Visits to the National Parks of the East Coast
Planning vacations to national parks on the East Coast was a summer tradition at the Tzvi Lexier household. Tzvi would be eternally thankful for these travels since they not only brought the family closer together, but they also instilled in Tzvi a passion for photography of the natural world. Tzvi recalls these family vacations, which took him to places like Acadia and Biscayne, with pleasure.
Being able to photograph the Atlantic coast, from Acadia National Park to Biscayne National Park and the wetlands of Everglades National Park has been an unforgettable experience for Tzvi, who grew up in the area.
Now it's time for the West Coast.
Tzvi has taken it upon himself to provide his children with the same experiences that he had as a child, following in his father's footsteps. He wants children to fall in love with nature just as much as he did, which is why excursions to national parks have become a family ritual in his own home as well as in other families. It was decided that their tours would take them to national parks on the West Coast this time around.
So far, he has brought his family to several national parks, including Yosemite National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Redwood National Park, and the Grand Canyon.
This summer, they're planning a vacation to Utah's Mighty 5 national parks, which are located throughout the state.
