For international award-winning travel series producer Gariné Tcholakian, great travel stories begin with great photography—each frame, a picture-perfect launching pad into the heart of the human soul.
As former Senior Editor at Canada’s most watched travel channel, Tcholakian has interviewed some of the most influential names in travel today, from Anthony Bourdain to Massimo Capra, developing a keen eye for great stories, whether captured in a frame or a moving image.
As founder of the annual photography exhibition WHY WE TRAVEL , her work has been featured in some of the world’s largest photography festivals, and graced the dynamic interactive pages of the #1 mobile travel tablet magazine on iTunes, Travel+Escape Magazine, which was recently named ‘Travel Magazine of the Year’ at the 2013 Digital Magazine Awards in the UK.
An award-winning producer and director, Tcholakian's original documentary series "Beyond Wanderlust: The New Nomads" won two (2) Outstanding Achievement Awards at the granddaddy of all web festivals, the L.A. WebFest, and brought home the highly coveted Rockie Award at the Banff World Media Festival in Canada last year.
Tcholakian currently leads one of travel’s hottest new multiplatform content companies as Executive Producer of GlobalTourist.TV, where her eye for great stories, visuals, and talent come together to bring some of the most compelling documentary narratives to a screen near you.
