Images from my first ever visit to Olympic National Park in the Pacific Northwest.

During my recent visit to the Pacific Northwest for the first time I had the opportunity to visit Olympic National Park. Growing up and living in the American Southwest it is hard to imagine that a place like this could even exist. While enormous, the park is the greenest place I have ever seen and has the densest biomass I have ever witnessed. Exploring and photographing this place was a truly magical and mind blowing experience.

Climbing in 18-Degree Weather to Shoot the Sunrise

Vantage, Washington

One of the things that I love about photography is how the quality of light can make or break a photo. When shooting outdoors it is those early hours in the morning that I love the most.

Our Hike to Angels Landing: Dangerous? Maybe. Amazing? Definitely.

Angels Landing, Utah

Three weeks before my sister turned 24 she texted me to ask if I wanted to go on a trip for her birthday. She wasn’t sure where she wanted to go but she knew she wanted to be outdoors.

Joshua Tree National Park, California

It all started with a simple Google search. My buddy, Cameron, and I were procrastinating studying for our law school finals when we started daydreaming about a getaway.
