Human Nature

Last April, 2015 my little brother and I took off on a 3 week car-camping / backpacking road trip throughout the southwest, specifically to shoot astro and nature time lapse. This is the edit that resulted from that trip. Outside Magazine called it "the best nature we've ever seen". Because of its success online we decided to do it again in July, 2016. This year we went from Grand Teton NP, down through UT, AZ, into CA and up to OR. Highlights included Big Sur, the Redwoods, and Alabama hills. See my Instagram for BTS from both trips.

I freelanced as a 2nd AC, time lapse, and BTS shooter for Engine Pictures, based out of DC. We spent 8 days 10 miles offshore in the Bahamas by surrounded sharks shooting a VW beetle shark cage! The experience was unforgettable and will stay with me forever.
