Went to Zion. It was mindblowing. Everyone kept pointing at things.
Can't drive past the Tetons without stopping by. Always great to spend even a few hours in Jackson, WY
The best thing about film is that when you get your scans back, you get to relive all of the small moments over again. This roadtrip was one of the best adventures of my life so far, so getting to relive even just a single second is something pretty special.
Canyonlands was the biggest, most magnificent rocks I've ever seen...and a couple of lizards too. Needless to say, it was a pretty awesome spot to spend a few days.
One of the most special adventures I've ever been on. I centered my roadtrip across the US to be in Wyoming during the Solar Eclipse. I backpacked over 30 miles to experience totality in the most special place I could find. Words can't really capture how it made me feel, but boy was it something else.
I had high hopes for the Badlands. Something about this place has intrigued me for years. Luckily, it did not disappoint. Between the landscape and the overwhelming amount of wildlife, I fell in love. Can't wait to get back to South Dakota and explore this amazing land more.
Last adventure on the east coast for a while. All shot on Ektar 100.

The Field Magazine is a digital ad-free magazine, intent on showing the beauty and accessibility of the outdoors. I couldn't be more proud to have them publish a photo essay from my recent trip to Iceland. All images were shot on film, and the words came straight from the heart. You can view the whole story here.
I had a half day shoot in Baltimore yesterday, so I decided to continue on and make a day of it. I headed to Great Falls National Park. I had never been before. It was the perfect 70 degree day, and the crowds were out. I chose to go hiking, rather than battle for a spot at the falls look out points. The light put on quite a show before a thunderstorm rolled in around sunset and I went home.
It's 85 degrees today, and the leaves are changing color. Seasonally, it doesn't quite make sense, but it sure is pleasant. I took a break for lunch and went for a walk. Captured this nature painting in the leaves. I will never cease to be amazed by the beauty of the world around us.
Managed to take a short walk to the abandoned piers by my house in South Philly. It always surprises me how much natural beauty can find it's way into an otherwise ugly environment.
Iceland showed me shades of green I didn't know existed.
"Iceland doesn't have many trees, therefore they must not have any Fall colors." Never have I been so glad to be so wrong.
How we managed to make it through the West Fjords without getting flat tire will forever be a mystery to me.
We weren't supposed to have time to go this way. I had cut it out of the trip itinerary completely, but I'm glad we were able to fit it in. With zero expectations, the Snaefellsnuss Peninsula was one of the most special parts of the trip.
I can't even pretend to pronounce the name of this canyon, but from the minute we booked our plane tickets, this was at the top of my list. I obviously had to see it from both the top and inside, but when we got inside the canyon, the paths along the side were flooded. I took off my shoes and socks and attempted to cross the river flowing through, but the water was too deep and absolutely frigid. I've never felt water so cold. It felt like knives.
And that, in a nutshell, is the coldest thing I did in Iceland.
Hidden deep in the adirondacks, Long Pond is a rare spot of tranquility only accessible by canoe. The perfect spot to spend a weekend looking at the stars, listening to the loons, and avoiding the black flies.
Who knew New Jersey could be so beautiful?
