Exploring an eerie moss covered temperate rainforest on the Olympic Peninsula. Until recently I wasn't even aware that rainforests existed in the United States. For my next project I'll be creating a video showing the diversity and beauty of a few of North America's forests. Photo captured on @googlepixel #pixel4 #ad
Nothing like the chill of fresh PNW air. I’ve begun work on my next video project which is something I care deeply about. I’ll be working with Creator Labs which have supported me and enabled me to complete this passion project. More on that later. I’ll be filming entirely on the @googlepixel 4 which this image was also captured with. #pixel4 #ad
1/4 light and 3/4 dark
After talking for a few minutes I found out that this morning was his final Sunday after decades of preaching in this beautiful little church on a remote island. Earlier around 3am I had woken up to drive and then hike to a lookout point to start off my shoot. Unfortunately my directions were based on summer conditions and after missing a “road closed for winter” sign I was halfway up a mountain on an ice covered road. One foot on my left was straight up and one foot on my right was straight down quite far. I had come all that way to shoot and I felt nothing would stop me so I kept trying to slowly make my way up. Finally after nearly slipping off a few times and realizing I would certainly fall off if I kept going I decided to go back. Unfortunately since there was no room to turn around that meant backing back down the mountain the way I came. Over an hour of pure concentration and luck, with wind and snow howling I made it back down. When I made it down I sat in my car with tears in my eyes from relief but mostly from frustration. The weather and land had beaten me and I didn’t know how I was going to make it through this trip. In the distance I saw some lights of a small town so I drove there. I parked in front of a church and realized it was Sunday. It looked empty but I knocked on the door and surprisingly somebody answered. He welcomed me in and asked where I was from. We talked for awhile and I found out his story and the new adventure in life he was about to embark on. Soon I had forgotten about the previous few hours and his warmth and excitement had me ready again to finish my adventure.
If you watched the new film I’m curious to know what your favorite frame was?

I don’t think my body has ever needed rest as much as now. 3 months of straight travel and shooting in all sorts of extreme conditions took its toll.
I’m in that kind of mood
First sunset in the Galapagos.
Just arrived in Morocco. Work has been crazy the last month and a half. Projects in Chicago, Milan, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, London and now Morocco. My Instagram and YouTube channel haven’t been a priority as I’ve been putting everything into other work. Looking forward to working on some personal projects soon though.
NEW VIDEO - Milan (link in bio ). I travelled with Lexus to Milan Design Week to capture the emerging designers at #LexusDesignAward and space designer at #LexusDesignEvent . I highly recommend visiting the space at Superstudio Piu, via Tortona 27 as it’s free to the public (April 9-14 ) and has an amazing interactive light display by Japanese creative design studio #Rhizomatiks . #DesignForABetterTomorrow #sponsored #MilanDesignWeek
The quiet afterglow of a passing storm. Coming out of dark times to be shown something beautiful about life because of them.
human light vs earth light
Traveling and shooting alone in harsh conditions has not been easy the last month. Taking a few days back in New York to rest and repack for some very different climates. Excited about all of the images I’ve had a chance to look through so far for this project.
Went for an arctic surf this morning. It was pretty cold but not as cold as expected as the 6mm thick wetsuit worked very well. Surrounded by snowy mountains and soaring birds with the wind pelting the water in our faces it really was a beautiful experience. Thank you so much to Patrick who invited me out. The connections I’ve been able to make around the world are probably the best part about this app for me.
