Day and Night: Photography

  This weekend Jason and I are traveling to Tulsa, Oklahoma to photograph a wedding. The bride and groom are both in the armed forces and their wedding is set to be a mixture of candle lit romance and early winter beauty.  We will be flying out tomorrow to shoot the wedding on Friday, then on Saturday we will be venturing into the wilderness of Oklahoma (yes, there is beautiful wilderness there) to photograph their day after shoot. This is…

A little life update and a soon to be husband

Well holy shit, how the heck do I start this one?!? Let me just state the big things and maybe I will explain them later. Basically, in late July I met the man of my dreams. It was love at first sight, literally.  I always thought that was kind of bull shit, there is no way someone could just know they loved someone by just the first meeting. It was so far from anything I had ever personally experienced I believed…

Turkey and Greece

Two years ago my sister, dad and I were lucky enough to accompany my stepmom on one of her trips to Greece and Turkey. For those of you that don't know Marilyn (my step-mom) owns an incentive travel company where she organises incentive trips for big business. She also has a leisure division called WOW travel where she designs similar trips but for friends and non-business related people. These trips are high-end and usually have some element of surprise and adventure. She…

Dirtbag Dreams

Yet another photo essay from the 'bama Hills. These were taken on a weekend camping/climbing trip we took with the Weekend Warrior crew. Great people, fine crags, campfires, puppies and slacklining, it's a dirtbag's paradise.  

Yosemite: Big Wall Climbs and Alcove Swings

I started looking through some photos from earlier this year and realised I have so many photos from trips that I have yet to post. They represent some incredible adventures so I would really like to share them through a series of photo essays. This first one is from back in May when the guys (Phillip, Emilio, Ray, and Christian) headed to Yosemite to climb the West face of leaning tower, which is one of America's most overhung walls. For those of…

Hiking Big Horn Mine

A few weeks back I decided to spend my Friday out in Big Horn Sheep country in the San Gabriel Mountains. The original plan had been to head out early and summit Mt. Baden Powel, I was all set, I even had crampons that I had bought so I could stay safe while walking over ice. With some research the night before, however, I decided that there was a bit too much ice and I had too little experience with…

My Scotland Trip

Well, my original plans for Scotland changed quite a bit as leading up to Halloween I thought I would have all my research completed before I left, when in reality I had a bit more on my plate than I anticipated.  So not wanting to cancel the whole trip I decided to cut my trip from 10 days down to 5. I ended up leaving for Edinburgh on Halloween morning, and after checking in at my lovely church conversion hostel…
