Mountain Adventure in the Rockies

This past weekend I went to the mountains with a couple of friends. 

I needed it. I needed nature and wanted to capture it's beauty. I love working on stories overseas for non-profits, but sometimes I need to stop and remember to photograph the beauty that surrounds me here too, just for fun. I wonder how many photographers ever take photo just for creative fun anymore and not just work. It's what we need to keep going. We need to keep creating and challenging ourselves to try different techniques and styles. We will grow as artists and creatives. Find something you enjoy and do it. Pick up the old film camera that you haven't touched in years. Pick a topic and dedicate 4 weeks to shooting a photo series on it. Go out in nature and photograph details of things you haven't noticed before. Keep creating!

Alternative Apparel Interview

I recently sat down with a writer, Amy Lynch at Alternative Apparel's blog called Common Thread in Austin, Texas to share a few stories with her between some of my trips. We had such a great time together. I was so impressed that she didn't record our conversation and only took a few notes during our entire time together. I was truly blown away by her writing style.
