About Me

My name is Jason Barnette and I am the Southeastern Traveler.

In 2009 I picked up an old Pentax K1000 35mm camera and nothing was ever the same again. I taught myself the fine art of photography (for better or worse I’ve never taken a class in photography), learned the business of photography my last year in college, and then began traveling. About six years later I decided to combine my passion for writing and photography and created this website. Today I travel the country searching for amazing destinations and connect them with exciting road trip stories.
