Before I could walk, I was taken into the wilderness and packed along on adventures across the globe. From my home in the mountains of Montana to Antarctica, Nepal and Mongolia, I have been witness to extraordinary moments, wildlife, people and places. It was from these experiences that stemmed my drive to traverse this world, and capture moments among my experience through the camera.
An early interest in journalism and influences of natural documentary, adventure photography and a close relationship with my environment have all shaped my perspective and continue to inform my aesthetic as an artist.
Photography is not an end in itself. It takes me to incredible places and shows me a view that I might have missed entirely were I not looking through the lens of my camera. I am intrigued by the intricate and unique worlds that each individual inhabits and I strive to weave into each of my images a static sense of time and place specific to that.
As a photographer, I continue to travel to far reaches of the world, play with premier athletes and document renowned musicians. But the most rewarding part of my journey has been the incredible people I have met along the way. I strive to always play a part in the world around me, and my camera allows me a unique view and the impetus to capture it.

Skiing Ja-Pow: Chasing Winter in Remote Japan

Our headlights ignite a furious vortex of snowflakes that races toward the windshield of our little Toyota HI eight-passenger van as we speed into the night and the thickening storm ahead. The road beyond the falling snow is barely distinguishable from the massive banks of white on either side of it, carved from the landscape…

Making a National Parks Adventure: Behind the Scenes of the New IMAX Film

The wind was gusting at 40 miles an hour, carrying a fury of snow and ice crystals that felt like they were cutting into my face even through my wool mask. Temperatures with wind chill dipped below minus 30ºF, and my fingers had started to lose feeling even in puff mittens intended for climbers scaling…

Exploring Indonesia by Pirate Ship

The infinite darkness and blue of a clear ocean is startling; as when we stare into the night sky, it reminds us in a very guttural sense of how small we are. The water I floated in with buoyant ease was the clearest I had ever experienced, a seemingly infinite prism for the long rays…

Watch: Four Friends Attempt to Climb and Ski North America’s 3rd Tallest Peak—in a Weekend

Looking back on our expedition to climb and ski Pico de Orizaba, the third highest peak in North America, in a weekend, and comparing it to every other weekend I have had since, I can’t really even draw a line. We set out to push our limits and go big. What we found both surprised us and gave us…

New Film Shows Lure of River Surfing

“It’s the ever-curling wave in so many ways,” says founder of Strongwater Mountain Surf Company Kevin Benhardt. The standing waves themselves, formed by rock features that sit along the riverbeds, actually do curl and break for as long as the water flows sustain them. However, it’s more about the water itself and the journey it…

Utah by Dirt: The Lure of the Wild River

As the river carried us strong and gentle through this labyrinth of sandstone in Ruby-Horsethief Canyon—past beautiful beaches occupied solely by shifting cottonwoods and slot canyons only accessible via a float down the Colorado or a 30-mile hike across the stark desert plateau above—the unique beauty of this place comes to light. Of course the…

Utah by Dirt: The Ultimate Adventure Road Trip

Follow along as we chase dirt trails, ride the red-water rapids of the Colorado River, and explore hidden canyons in Escalante on our Utah by Dirt adventure. Follow along with the hashtag #UTbyDirt. The looming sandstone towers obscured the entire northern skyline from where we had parked and were now setting up camp. We found…

Exploring the Cold Coast: Mountain Biking in Bellingham – Dispatch #5

Errant rays of light cut the dark forest floor as the afternoon sun lay heavy over the hills below Mount Baker, Washington. The hand-crafted trail sheared methodically through the dense forest undergrowth, snaking ribbon-like through the otherwise thick green carpet of verdure and deadfall. Like a ghost in his full-face mask, Micah Evangelista emerged from the…

Exploring the Cold Coast: Sounds and Sailing in Seattle – Dispatch #3

The horn blast sounded long and deep, resonating through the thick fog that encompassed our small sailboat. A huge cargo tanker bound for Seattle’s port was out there in the mist somewhere beyond what our eyes could detect. Its position was only notable to us by the GPS unit we watched earnestly from behind the…

Exploring the Cold Coast: The Adventure Begins

So begins a 14-day adventure odyssey to drive the Pacific Northwest coast from Seattle to Vancouver Island. The rocky shoreline was crowded with Sitka spruce trees, like slender green giants pressed up against the edge of the sea shrouded in a layer of morning fog. Sea birds stirred into flight with the growing light of the coming…
