I go places outside and take pictures 📍OR 👉🏻 🤷🏻‍♂️ Interested in a print? 👉🏻 DM

A good reminder that not everything in life needs a plan, go on a whim more often, the surprise is much better that way imo! So glad it’s Friday, so ready for the weekend 🤘🏻 Hope you have a wonderful day!

Tomorrow is Halloween, and then Friday is November, and then comes my birthday, and then Thanksgiving, and then Christmas, and then New Years and then it’s a long 10 months to wait to repeat. Enjoy all of your time, while you have you. The time you spend upset or angry at something is wasted energy. Build people up, be kind, offer to help rather than wait to be asked 🤷🏻‍♂️

Mount Rainier being moonlit during blue hour one great morning prior to sunrise! Unsure of what my weekend plans are for this weekend, anyone getting out and shooting?? Either way, I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Reminiscing on some falling waters and natural framing again... all the falls are currently getting replenished and I can’t wait to get out there again! Hopefully soon! What’s your favorite waterfall you’ve visited so far?

Wintery conditions blasted the Cascade Range last weekend, so here’s a waterfall shot, not from last weekend.

Can’t wait to get out and explore again! Also running my first, and maybe last 5k this weekend... wish me luck (for someone who doesn’t run)! 😂

A couple peaks off the side of Mount Rainier the other weekend at sunset! Decided to try something a little different as I don’t shot fog the below me very often. Threw on the long lens and filter and tried a long exposure to get some movement in the fog below and clouds above all while hoping for some color at sunset! Was a brief show but well worth the effort to get where I was! Can’t wait to get back out there again. Couple weeks of not shooting is a long time when it’s your hobby/outlet! Have a great weekend everyone!

Being above fog and seeing this lenticular spin around the top of Mount Rainier for a couple hours was nothing short of awesome! Such a fun weekend camping with a great group of friends! Thanks for sharing your time and exploring: @my.bajan.eye , @lishy , @michaelhowardphotos , @seanhaselden !

Off to Denver for a few days! Any suggestions?? Might go to RMNP for the first time!

Moody evenings in Central Oregon! •
Did you know that a glass ball bounces higher than a rubber ball (same thing with a steel ball)?? Granted the glass doesn’t doesn’t break or crack and you bounce them from the same height 🤷🏻‍♂️ Yeah, me neither.

First solo trip didn’t go as planned but I still walked away with a few shots that I enjoy! Here’s one from later in the evening of that closeup shot of Rainier I posted previously (right below this post on my page)!

Anyone else ever realize that when you’re driving, you’re literally the best driver on the road!? That’s because everyone going slower than you is an idiot and everyone going faster than you is a complete dumbass, therefore you’re the “best” driver on the road! 😂
•
Went out to Smith Rock State Park last weekend in hopes to catch some lightning (happened all around) but not much luck in that department, unfortunately. Although, as the sun was setting it created this moody feel as the clouds continued to roll by for a good 30minutes before it got too dark.

Anyone else find it crazy intriguing that humans are the worst but the best thing on this planet at the same time? Too much evil, corruption, and sometimes even too much competition and greed. Everything’s a challenge. Gotta be better than the last or the next, rather than actually helping out your neighbor. Think about that, in all aspects of life for a moment. How are you helping? How can you help? Rather than pointing the finger at someone else for the issue, ask yourself what can you do the help the situation. •
Thinking about heading back towards Central Oregon this weekend, let me know if you’re in the area!

Last weekend I went to Rainier for a very short 24 hour trip! Was a pretty crazy roller coaster of a weekend to say the least but feel like I walked away with a handful of images that I actually enjoy! I shot a little bit of everything, from macro to the Milky Way! Here’s an in between shot from Rainier as the last clouds pass at sunset!

The combination of great conditions and great company continued on the other weekend! Roaming around a few lakes in the Bend area, we happened to stumble across this one, which had zero wind and perfect reflections!

So blessed with great friends, random trips to wherever we decide to go that day (because we’re so indecisive haha), the shared passion, the laughter and the friendly banter. Grown children, it’s what we are and that’s okay because it’s an almost guarantee that there’s never really a dull moment! Thanks for a fun weekend a few weekends ago! @lishy , @michaelhowardphotos , @samsnaps77 , @scsa316 . It was also good to meet @jen_grand and @thea.martin.pdx !

Headed to Rainier for a solo trip in a couple days! Will be out and about chasing wildflowers, sunsets/rises, and maybe some Milky Way if time/weather permits. If anyone would like to link up to meet/shoot, let me know!

Stoked I finally made it out to this Oregon gem 💎 even though it took me a handful of years, it’s grown very popular and I fully understand why after finally going. It was actually pretty damn difficult to photograph, due to the mist blasting off the falls and rocks all around. The plus side, sooo many lovely comps!
•
I feel like I got extremely lucky with timing as I was the only one there during my visit AND caught some great light through the trees! Felt great to get back out, exploring places I’ve never been. Popular or not, enjoy what you can. Wayyyy to many judgemental people out there to make you think and feel like places aren’t worth visiting or checking out. Get out and go explore! Do so with respect, to others, to your environment, and most importantly yourself! Oh, and happy #waterfallwednesday

It’s always the unexpected. The ones you don’t have a plan or any expectations for. These are the times and photographs I seem to cherish the most. Seems to really help me just be in the moment and enjoy the process. If you look closely you can see a little bird hanging out/relaxing too. Stoked to be off to NOLA for a long non-photo weekend 🤘🏻 enjoy!

If you know me, you know I’m not a big talker in person, or on social really. There’s times and places, but in general I’m a fairly level headed and quiet individual. I’ve always been a good listener for others, an ear for venting, and what I like to think - an easy person to talk to. Who knows, maybe that’s what I’m good at. Being able to listen and understand where people come from, while being honest, respectful, and an attempting to be helpful. With that being said, if you ever need an ear, don’t hesitate to reach out as I’ll attempt to do the best I can with what I have and know. I’m not here for the games, I’m not here for the bs, I’m here because I want to make real connections with real people. Also because I want to share my images and work with you as well. Hope you enjoy!
