Welcome to RJ Travel Media's home page. Hi, I'm Ralph Hajik, Founder and President of RJTravelMedia from the Chicagoland area, a world known photojournalist, videographer, travel media covering special events from around the globe and always on the move. You can contact me by email: RJTravelMedia@yahoo.com. I produce my own travel DVDs using Magix Vegas editing software, DVD Architect Pro along with Sound Forge and New Blue FX. I'm a proud member of CreativeCow.com http://forums.creativecow.net/nabexpo and when I receive important information from Washington D.C. about NAB I post it on CreativeCow NAB Show for my readers. Also, I'm a member of NAPP (National Association of Photoshop Professionals). In my line of work I’m always communicating with photographers, videographers, travel program managers and wonderful travelers from around the world.

At RJTravelMedia I have a wonderful staff: Julie Hajik (Vice President and Photojournalist), Carl Hajik (Photojournalist and Actor), Albert Wirth (Photojournalist) and Nora Wirth (Photojournalist and Communications Specialist). Let me take you back years ago on how my business started. My mother, Mary Hajik (Santangelo), bless her soul, had bought me my very first Bell & Howell Super 8 camcorder using S&H green stamps. I have produced, edited and showed my final results while playing music from vinyl records to keep my audience interested. Yes, those were the good old days. Since then I have progressed along with technology, studied in television production, audio and photography making my work flow much easier, faster plus having a great staff.

Since then I came in 1st place for my video work and presentation from General Motors in Detroit, Michigan, was on a photo shoot and photographed the North America Vice President of GM, Customer Care and Aftersales (CCA) while on tour at the Chicago CCA facility. Also, my travel pictures can be seen in Vantage Deluxe World Travel Magazines and have taken 2nd place in a North American photo contest. Since then, my pictures have been published in the Vantage Travel magazines with continued success.

My staff is always updating this site with new pictures and video footage of events from countries around the world of people, places and adventures where we have visited. If you enjoy Christmas cruising, then enjoy the Christmas Holiday Market vacation in Europe on a river boat cruise. You can enjoy a fantastic vacation experience at http://www.vantageadventures.com/ or http://www.vantagetravel.com/. You'll experience through my pictures and video footage what life really is about in other parts of the world. Please browse through my gallery of pictures below by clicking on them and enjoy the lasting memories that we have enjoyed in our travels.


The Chicago Travel and Adventure Show is at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, Rosemont, IL. Attending this year was special guest Rich Steves, Samantha Brown, Pauline Frommer, Peter Greenberg and Johnny Jet. This was a great show if you missed it and for more information go to http://travelshows.com/shows/chicago/. Our pictures of The Chicago Travel and Adventure Show were spectacular last year.

If you’re in the market for a Buick or GMC vehicle, my preferred dealership is “Woody Buick-GMC” located in Naperville, IL. Woody is known for their professional sales staff and service in the Chicagoland area. When you go into Woody Buick-GMC, just ask for Greg Anderson and say Ralph Hajik sent you. Their web site is http://www.woodybuickgmcnaperville.com.

When you’re in the Chicagoland area you have to see the band "The Remedy". The Remedy plays Rock and Country music and you'll diffidently dance the night away.
