I never went to school for photography or have taken a class on the subject. Half the time I’m trying to think of what to shoot and the other half I’m wondering if what I shot will be good enough to post. I’m often torn between visiting the mountains or the beach and sometimes I edit for hours and just can’t get it how I want it. I’ve probably overexposed, underexposed, and overedited more pics than I can count. Through the trials, errors, good times and bad, I can’t think of a job that could make me happier. I‘m not sure if I’m on the path I thought I’d be on, but I wake up each day with a smile on my face ready to learn something new.

Touchdown into Rio de Janeiro! A city so full of culture, pride, and oozing an energy that you can feel from the second you step off the plane. This marks my first trip into South America and Brazil has been on my bucket list for many years. It’s amazing how big this city is, with mountains, an urban rainforest, and incredible beaches around each corner. If Day 1’s sunrise with @visitbrasil had this in store, I’m excited for the rest of the week!
After four days of rain and clouds, a little sunlight and a rainbow was enough to turn our spirits around. The one nice thing about inclement weather is it typically rewards the people willing to ride out the storm. In a place like Iceland, you take the good with the bad and realize the uncertainty is part of the mystique.

You’re never too old to dream a new dream. It’s never too late to start trying. You’re not too old for young love. You didn’t miss your chance to start a bucket list. This might be your first mistake but it’s not your last chance. It might seem like you’re stuck in a rut but it’s never too late to mend your ways. You’re not too old to find a best friend. It’s not too late to reach out to someone who needs help. You’re never too old to hug your friends. There’s no promise of tomorrow, but we’re all alive today. It’s never too late to go after what you want in life.

Even though the days were longer than any I’ve experienced in California, we always seemed to be in a rush trying to squeeze the most out of that golden light. Often times we pulled over so many times that we didn’t even make it to where we planned on going before night began to set in. You know what the best part of it all was? Even when things didn’t go as planned, the memories of those frantic car rides full of detours were more than I had ever hoped for from the trip. I’ve always thought planning was the key to a successful trip, but sometimes you learn more from giving up control and letting the wind carry you as it may. More often than not, you’ll end up right where you’re meant to be.

The first time I stepped foot over Peyto Lake I thought there was no way the water could be as blue as in pictures I’d seen. I was wrong. The second time I thought my memory of the first trip may have been dramatic but once again I stood in awe. This was my third visit and we hiked a ways away to get a different view. Even on the cloudiest of days, some places never lose their shine.

We got a 10 minute break from the gloomy weather as the sun broke through the clouds and lit up the trees and water. A few minutes later it was gone for the rest of the day. Photography is much about being in the right place at the right time, but over the years I’ve learned to appreciate the beauty in how the changing weather transforms a scene. I used to expect the best sunset and color every time I went out to shoot and the disappointment of things not living up to these expectations would ruin the experience for me. You can’t worry about things out of your control and learning to travel with lower expectations has been the key to being pleasantly surprised more often than not. A few years ago I would’ve left when I saw it was cloudy, but I’m glad I stuck around this time to see what could happen.

First trip up to Vancouver and Tofino did not disappoint. Had some incredible weather, checked out some new beaches, and scored on an incredible fishing trip along the coast. Mountains, beaches, and some of the friendliest people around....what an incredible place.

It’s my birthday! I don’t post too many portraits of myself but this picture really captures how happy I am sharing this wild life with the best friends and family I could ever ask for. Each year brings its own challenges, but I’m happier now than I’ve ever been and so appreciative of all the support you guys give me on a daily basis. Here’s to another lap around the sun!

Even on a moody day you count on @asenseofhuber to bring some color to the landscape. Pick your favorite color and you’ll get to navigate one of the worlds most beautiful views. Seeing kids, older couples, and even puppies enjoy the lake was enough alone to brighten the morning. Shot on the @sonyalpha a7riii and 16-35mm lens. #aicdoescanada

Crystal clear blue water mixed with mountains and a pinch of sun. I’m no chef but that sounds like a perfect recipe to me. Our @sonyalpha team scored a perfect morning at Lake Louise today before heading out on a hike with wolves (see my story 😱). Shot on the Sony a7riii and 12-24mm lens. #aicdoescanada

Mornings on Bungalow Boulevard. When there’s more fish on the block than people you know it’s a relaxed vibe.
