    "A master portrait artist, Travis’s training at the Art Center shines through, because he takes photos as if he were a painter. Kudos on your ever-expanding collecting of fine art photography.

    "Etravus was one of my very first contacts here on Flick r...and to this day remains as one of few that I see continue to evolve as one of today's most talented photographers.

    I only wish I had half of his talent, then perhaps I would be working at the Dream Factory as well.

    Keep On Keep On Etravus!"

    "I would have to say that etravus has never disappointed my eye for the interesting or the beautiful even in things we might consider mundane. For me this is the sign of a master. More recently I have been admiring his portraits and photos of children. These are all delightful. Again his keen eye brings out the best in everything or everyone he points his lense at. Keep it up etravus."

    "Hi etravus
    I just started to use flickr for our homepage us as media to share photos. The photos are from different parents or relatives of the members of the swiming club. I hope i don`t forget to mention the fotographer himself. I visited your photos and they are very nice!
    Walter from Regensburg Bavaria Germany

    If you don`t understand German:
    schön anzusehen is translated into Englisch "beautiful to look at"
    and that describes your photos well!"

    distinct knot says:

    "It appears etravus has an unspoken bond with light. He can feel that natrual flow, and he can reach out and catch it with his shutter in a way that seems so real, so normal, yet at the same exact time truly spectacular. etravus takes what we see, we being the common people of Earth, and transforms it into his own work of art. His photos are truly paintings of light and natural beauty. There is nothing artificial or forced in this man's work. And in that respect, etravus shows a brilliance and an absolute understanding of photography.

    etravus is a master, no doubt, but he is also not afraid to try new things and forever better himself in the craft. For that, I am very proud and grateful to have him as a contact and, better yet, a mentor."

    To Day 9/8/06 saw the a person called Etravus wanted me to be listed as a contact. I did not or yet know this person. I have just seen the reputation this man has, I a flabbergasted that I was contacted. I am honoured that such a phorographer would see me as a person, he would want to contact, that takes average photographs. I was delighted to list him as a friend"

    "Somehow etravus discovered me, as I noticed I had a message naming me as his newest contact one day. Then I took a look at his photography, and that was when I knew I had to have him as a contact.

    Brilliant vision, great follow thru, and when you have beautiful children, it makes photography of them even easier."
