Atif Ateeq -- Photo Editor
Atif recently spent three weeks driving cross-country and, oddly enough, didn't check in to any hotels. After crashing on couches and sleeping in his car, he came back with thousands of photographs from 23 states. At Oyster, Atif continues to live out his passion for travel and photography, but without all the couch-surfing. Now he visits many destinations and hotels a day -- through the reporters' photographs, of course.
Kimberly Mufferi -- Assistant Photo Editor
Kimberly's passions are photography and travel. She spent two months studying art in Greece, and recently spent three weeks driving around Italy and Sicily, staying in hotels, camping, or sleeping in her rental car. When she's not at Oyster editing the travel photos of others, she's taking her own photographs on the road or in NYC. She will not go anywhere without a camera and prefers being barefoot.
