FOR THOSE DOCUMENTING ADVENTURES IN THE GREAT OUTDOORS
ADVENTURE PHOTOGRAPHY EDUCATION
We have learned so much while growing our adventure photography business and continue to learn more about the industry with each passing day. There are so many things that we wish we had known when we were just starting out, so many things that would have helped us grow faster, and so many things that we are learning and discovering still today. One of the most beautiful things about photography and running your own business is that no matter how long you’ve been doing it or how much of an expert you are, there is no end to how much you can learn. We believe strongly in photography education and want to share our personal experience with fellow adventure wedding and elopement photographers!
Sunrise // Olympic National Park, WA // July, 2017
FAVORITE MOMENT ON THE ROAD: Whenever I can bathe in a natural hot spring. Also, the first sunset after setting up camp in a new area.
FAVORITE PLACE TO EXPLORE: In the winter: southwest deserts, hands down. In the summer: all over the PNW because it’s insanely varied and I don’t do hot weather well.
BEST PHOTOGRAPHY ADVICE: Don’t let capturing the landscape become more important than experiencing it. When you’re having fun just being outside and exploring, your photos are going to reflect that passion.
Sunrise // Bishop, CA // November, 2017
FAVORITE MOMENT ON THE ROAD: Stepping outside with a cup of coffee in my hand. I love feeling the crisp morning air and staring out at the mountains.
FAVORITE PLACE TO EXPLORE: The rugged PNW coastline and watching big waves crash against epic cliffs. That, and the sound of seagulls, the smell of the ocean, and sand in between my toes. It’s my paradise.
BEST PHOTOGRAPHY ADVICE: Don’t get caught up only capturing the moments directly in front of you. Remember to take a step back (or like 50) to observe and capture the entire scene around you.
Sunrise // Horseshoe Bend, AZ // February, 2017
FAVORITE MOMENT ON THE ROAD: Running free in the desert. I always stay within ear shot so my folks let me roam free. It’s the best part of being a dog.
FAVORITE PLACE TO EXPLORE: Literally everywhere. The forest, the desert, the beach, my grandparent’s backyard, the dog park. I’m a dog, everything is my favorite.
BEST PHOTOGRAPHY ADVICE: Always carry food with you and make sure to give me some. I’ll even show you my best trick for a bite of that clif bar 😉
