Reaching to the Sky - Cleary Summit // Fairbanks, Alaska

Definitely one of the most memorable experiences of 2014, a night spent under the Aurora.

She Glows - Sparks Lake // Bend, Oregon
A fleeting moment of light and shadow during what proved to be one of the most colorful sunsets I've seen at Sparks.

The First Snow - Ester Dome Observatory // Fairbanks, Alaska

Well, no Aurora to be found the last few nights, but the fresh snow has been refreshing, and cold. It's not been all snowmen building, there's photos to be made!   #wheretowillie   #alaska  #fairbanks

That Moment - Trillium Lake // Mt Hood National Forest, Oregon

There's a certain mystery to the pre-dawn hours, and I find myself more and more drawn to them.  Before I begin to ramble, perhaps a quote would best fit my thoughts: 

"Life is flowing and continuous, it’s full of crossroads, tributaries, and sudden bends. To live is to travel, and navigable space attracts us. We want to follow the road or the river to find out what lies around the next bend or over the next rise. The mere fact that they exist seems to tell us that we should follow them. No one has ever lived our lives before us. This moment we are in a space and time that have never been traveled. Many past events prepared us for this moment, and we may often feel as though we were following a track that has been laid out for us, but at other times we feel as though we were strapped to the nose of a rocket, plunging through space where no one has ever been. Then, at times, we become one with our path, immersed in our lives unquestioningly. This is the condition we prefer, when the river that leads us through life simply flows."

The Dance - Cleary Summit // Fairbanks, Alaska

If you see a person sleeping in the back of a rental car in Fairbanks this weekend, let him sleep.  He's chasing the aurora and staying up all night. 

See y'all on Monday!

On Down the Road - Oly National Park, Washington 

Heading to the coast, glowing in the afternoon sunshine.  Anyone know anyone needing to get rid of a van?  This needs to happen soon.

On a Distant Shore - Cape Kiwanda // Pacific City, Oregon

There's not much better than feeling the power of the ocean. I have to say it's a blessing to live so close. Sometimes I feel as though I've always had a connection with the water, a long seeded idea that I didn't know when I was young but have learned over the years.

Blue Bowl // Crater Lake National Park, Oregon

Heading back here this week to check out what summer is like at Crater. Definitely glad to have gone in for a weekend in the backcountry during the spring, but I imagine that it's vastly different this time of year. Keeping my eye out for clouds!

We were just there.  So different.  Just a couple tiny patches of snow.  Still beautiful, but I'd like to see it like this too.

Story
Tagline
A modern day explorer with an addiction to capturing life thru the lens.
Introduction
Travel, exploration, photography, life, showcased thru the lens of whatever camera I may wield. 

In the past years I’ve found the passion to share the world as I see it, through the lens of a camera. I absolutely love being out and involved in the world; meeting new people, experiencing new cultures, and taking in beautiful places. The strong admiration I have for the world is what I attempt to display in my art and acts as a constant inspiration for my photography.
