Waterfront Lullaby - Day One 

I wasn't going to post any of my shots from my trip to New York today until I saw +Maximilian Laue's post asking for shots from my day.

The story behind this piano found below the Brooklyn Bridge is a mystery to the population of New York. There's been much speculation, some people saying it's an art installation, others saying that it's a piano from Hurricane Katrina, the list goes on. All I know is that this is the only moment of peace that I felt throughout my whole day exploring the city. From this beach I was able to focus in on the composition and ask myself how this scene all came to be.

Your turn now +Mark Gvazdinskas!

Despite being pretty exhausted I had to make a stop to shoot Mt. Thielsen on my way back from Crater Lake.

Crater Lake Night Sky 

I think my favorite part about Milky Way photography is that first moment that your eyes adjust to the night sky and you can see the gigantic column of stars arching over you. There was never a question in my mind about why I was carrying my extremely large pack out into the wilderness to spend the night by myself. 

I woke up at 2:30am to the wind pulling at my tent and my alarm. I threw my shoes on and headed out into the darkness. After about two hours I found where I would set my camera up for the night and headed back to camp. This in my experience has to be the worst part. You sit there hoping you made the right choice as far as composition and just hope none of the unexpected could happen to your gear.

It's always a huge relief to wake up and check the screen and be satisfied with your choices. As I began backpacking back to Rim Village it dawned on me that photography makes me do some pretty damn strange things to get the shot, but I can't help but love fucking every moment of it. 

This is a composite of two frames from the timelapse, the two lights in the distance are Medford on the right and Klamath Falls on the left. 

I'll be doing a blog post with MSR very soon that goes through the steps required to capture shots like this if you're curious. 

Follow me over on Vimeo to see the timelapse upon completion

I'm pretty happy with how these product shots I did for Original Grain watches turned out. I couldn't think of a better setting for wooden watches than the Pacific Northwest. Awesome dudes, awesome products, check em out. www.originalgrain.com

I still can't believe I hadn't been on the Eagle Creek trail before, hands down one of the most scenic hikes I've ever been on, it just has it all. I realized this somewhere between the bald eagles nests and the towering moss covered cliffs. 

Once arriving at the falls I decided to take a plunge in the creek to grab a shot and of course it then begins pouring. I retreated back over the slippery moss covered rocks of the river to a carved out cliff and drank a beer. I guess I've had worse days.

I finally got home from my week and a half long trip yesterday after seeing friends, family, and spending many nights in my car. Yesterday morning I woke up at Ophir Wayside State Park in Southern Oregon and was greeted by some pretty crazy looking storm clouds, so I got out of my car in my basketball shorts and hung out shooting the beach until I couldn't feel my feet anymore. Over the next couple weeks I'll be posting shots from the whole trip. Photos brought to you by sleepless nights, energy drinks, and beer.

I'm finally starting to put together a bunch of my time lapse sequences from the last year and there is nothing more exciting than seeing all of your hard work coming together. This is a clip from a short film I'm working surrounding the bay area fog. I will periodically release new clips over the next couple months to give people a taste of the direction of my projects and where they're going. This was shot with +Toby Harriman from Battery Spencer, in the spring of 2013. Feel free to ask any questions you may have and also make sure to add me on vimeo! 

Shot with my Canon 6D on top of a +Kessler Crane shuttle pod mini.

After weaving my way around cacti and boulders, I found myself at this spot in the Alabama Hills. I can't wait to get back out under the stars this Friday in Big Sur. 

This shot is lit by the Goal Zero Litehouse 250.

Follow the link to the Mountain Safety Research blog if you want more insight into how I create my Milky Way images.

I vividly remember lying on the wet grass staring up at the Milky Way passing over Yellow Stone National Park as a child. I had never seen anything so thought-provoking or awe-inspiring before in my life,

Earth Day

I realized while shooting this shot that Photography is most definitely my form of meditation. I completely forget about the world around me and focus in on nature without a care in my mind. I can't think of anything else that allows me this complete ease of mind, it's this feeling that draws me to photography in the first place. It's the reason I romp straight into deep rivers full of water from snow melt, it's the reason I endure the scrapes and the cuts.
 
I can't honestly think of anything I love more. Keep the earth clean we can continue to enjoy scenes like this.
 
Best viewed on black.

Feel free to add me elsewhere. It's always nice to see new faces.

This is one of the first shots from my trip south, I was driving on interstate 5 and barely able to see 20 feet in front of me due to the fog so I decided to pull over and hang out until it got a little better. Fortunately I was greeted by this massive storage warehouse in the middle of nowhere. There's nothing more startling than standing in the middle of a field at 2 in the morning, for an hour, in the dead silence only to have a Goose fly 10 feet over your head and honk at you.

Tamanawa Falls

Although I just got back from my trip to the Redwoods yesterday and I have more photos to process than I know what to do with I decided to embark on another trip, this time to the eastern side of Mt. Hood.
 
The trail was iced over and required some careful navigating. After a literal uphill battle with the ice I arrived at the falls. There's really nothing like standing there and taking it all in for yourself, I really wish this shot conveyed the sense of scale that you get while standing in the middle of this gorge.

Story
Introduction
I was born in Pacific Grove, California which I would say instilled my love for the coast. Waking up every morning to the sound of the seals in the harbor and fog in the air. From there I moved to Sacramento for the majority of my public schooling. After that I did a little bit of travelling, I moved between Pacific Grove (once again) to Eugene, Oregon, to Santa Cruz, and then to my current location San Francisco. 

At the moment I'm studying for a degree in New Media, and trying to balance getting good grades and capturing every sunset that comes my way. I work as a contract graphic/web designer for now but who knows what the future holds for me.
