Travel Photography by Bill Schaefer

Lens on Asia started as a photo collection of my treks and travels throughout Asia but now includes photos from journeys around the world. I have always been captivated by images of exotic places. Once I had the opportunity to travel and see these places I wanted to share the experience through photography. 

My first visit to Nepal in 1997 was a trek to Mount Everest to see the Himalayas. I was stunned by the scale and beauty of the landscape. But it was the people I met there that made a deep impression on me. Their kindness, generosity and humor was, and still is inspiring. I hope the images on this site do justice to the the people and countries I've photographed and inspire others as well.
