Photographer, writer, and lawyer. Trains, ships,people and airplanes, nature and landscapes are my favorite sorts of photos. I'm from Tucson, Arizona, but spent much of the past decade working overseas on international development projects. Why not try to save the world while there's still a chance?

My work has taken me to some great places, and many of the photos on Flickr are the result. I spent years working with film cameras, but am sold on the pure, and cheap, fun that's possible with digital photography. I just wish I were better at it!!!

I own the copyright to all of the photographs that I have posted to Flickr and any use or reproduction of these photographs without my permission is strictly prohibited. However, if you wish to reproduce or otherwise make use of my photographs, please contact me and we'll discuss it.

    Konabish ~ Greg Bishop says:

    "I love seeing military aircraft (especially USA and WWII era). But I'm not so much of a 'buff' that I can easily identify them. Ivan certainly fills-in the blank spaces, because he adds the fantastic information to each display. His models set matches or exceeds any of my aircraft books. This of course also applies to his trains photos -- I can only imagine the justice he (will I'm sure) can do to the rolling stock of the United States! I greatly enjoy ships, my next discovery to be found in there...."

    "Ivan manages to capture split second events, such as a fish rising up to the surface of the water gasping for breath (my personal favorite). I like the way he captures natural beauty on his travels. I particularly enjoyed his photos of Istanbul and Turkmenistan."

    "Ivan not only has an incredible eye for a great photo but the detailed description of his pictures brings you into the area the photo was taken and gives you a lesson in the area and rail operation that the picture was taken"

    " What a great surprise it was when Ivan Abrams made me a contact. I am so glad he has had the chance to travel to so many places I will never see and only dream about.
    His train, aircraft and boat pictues are breathtaking to say the least. Thanks for being a Flickr member and sharing your travel and pictures with us all.

    Brave Heart"
