This shot would not have been possible without my jeep. I was driving back from a cold and rainy morning at Virginia Lakes when I noticed a road that I saw on my fall colors report and decided to check it out. I found myself completely surrounded by tree tunnels. Some parts of the trail were pretty gnarly from all the rain but it was all worth it in the end.


This was one of those moments that only lasted a few minutes. It was cloudy and not much of this lake had started to change colors for the fall. The sun peaked through the clouds and touched down onto the only trees that had begun their transformation for the season. I laughed saying to myself “no way is this happening right now.” And then this kayak launched into the water. This is exactly why I love photography. Have a radical weekend everyone.


When you travel by yourself, your vehicle finds itself becoming an instagram model trying to sell you some fit-tea or teeth whitening products. I rarely post photos of my jeep on here but I think I’m going to start including more about me on this page. I love my jeep and I love fall. The perfect combo.


Fall does exist in California. I just got back from a road trip up and down the 395 in search of the changing leaves. I was overwhelmed with my surroundings since I’ve never really seen fall happen since I moved to LA 8 years ago. Take the drive and explore this beautiful state.


Lots of new music today. Here are some albums that I’ve been listening to. @thestorysofarca - Proper Dose @thiswilldestroyyoumusic - New Others Part One @thrice - Palms @pinegroveband - Skylight @roosevelt_music - Young Romance @hailthesun - Mental Knife Have a radical weekend everyone. Here’s one from @yellowstonenps last year.


I’ve been messing around with some older photos in lightroom. I wanted to capture a different mood especially with this lost coast series. Let me me know what you think.


I can’t wait to revisit this place again.


Here’s one from my eclipse road trip last year. I’ve always wanted to photograph lightning so this was a nice surprise for the drive back home to LA.


There's a darkness that is brighter than our light There's a danger, love, to holding on so tight I'm finally seeing I've been seeing this all wrong I'm finally seeing now that everything belongs


One year ago today I was in Wyoming watching the total solar eclipse. There are moments in life that will remain with you forever and for me, this is one them.

What would you do if you woke up tomorrow and Instagram was gone forever? I would be stoked.


I snapped this an hour ago on an overpass walking around my neighborhood. ISO 100 200mm f/9.0 1/640sec


They say the good die young No use in saying "what is done is done" 'Cause it's not enough And when the night gives way It's like a brand new doomsday @architects


Taking a break from here for a while. I’ve found myself wasting too much time getting lost within this app. Time to reconnect with reality instead of living behind the screen.


One of my favorite shots from the day of the dudes in @thenewpacific at @vanswarpedtour.


Here’s something different. I was recently given the opportunity to photograph the first day of @vanswarpedtour. I’ve never photographed anything like this before so it was definitely a learning experience for me. Running from stage to stage in the heat, dodging crowd surfers, making new friends. It was a really radical day. Here are some of my favorites. Have an awesome weekend everyone.


What you don’t see in this photo are the 7 other photographers all standing next to each other on a narrow pathway in the cold for hours. It’s nice meeting other people who share the same interests as you in the middle of nowhere. If you look to the right of this shot, you’ll see a shooting star. This is a single exposure with the following settings. Post in LR. 25s ISO 4000 f/1.4 3800k
