Travis Baker

Travis studied theater and photography at Texas Tech University until transplanting to Austin in 2011. He has been working with Twist Tours and coping with cedar fever ever since. While real estate and architectural photography are his main focus, he enjoys shooting macro, landscape and wildlife in his spare time. Travis avoids traffic by living in north Austin with his wife Bee and cat-dog Bruno.
