“One of the most rewarding parts of what I do now as a professional photographer is playing a part, ever so small, in helping people connect with their creative side and immerse in the wilderness, and encourage them to tell their own stories and share their own view of the world.”

In this video, I reflect on my journey as a photographer, how it has impacted my life, and what it means to be a storyteller.
