A lot has happened since the last time I posted. I wanted to take a break from Instagram and needed some time to relax from the pressure of social media. I’ve made some big decisions these last couple of weeks on what I want to do with my life. I’ve now decided to move my major from Photography over to Environmental Studies with a minor in Biology. This way I can truly pursue what drives me to photograph nature. Conserving our planets resources is vital for others to exist and I want to continue working on this goal whether is be through non-profits or some other place. I’m excited for what the future holds and where it’ll take me! . . . . . . . . #conservewa #pnwcollective #undiscover #earthofficial #pnwonderland #undiscovertheworld #great_shotz #igworld_global #natureconservation #ig_shotz #moodygrams #special_shots #ig_naturelovers  #main_vision #pacificnorthwest #splendid_earth #pnwlife #master_shotsmaster_shots #upperleftusa #capturelandscapes #awesome_photographers #earthcorps #livewashington #thatpnwlife #pcnwlandscape #LiveBravely #fantastic_shotzs #conservewater #shotsdelight #GlobalCapture

Sometimes the littlest of adventures can turn into times that you’ll remember forever. . Explored this area though google maps and decided to take my car on multiple service roads in the middle of nowhere. Little did I know that while trekking about half a mile into this field I had lost my car keys in the vast area that I had covered. . Jumping over trenches and sporadically running around, I knew that there was no hope of getting out of there before dark. . So here I am in the middle of who knows where and there’s one thing I learned on this tiny adventure. Always have a spare key close by and always have a light and charger on you. Thanks to @lander i was able to keep my phone charged and in contact with people. . . . . . . . . #statepark #pnwcollective #undiscover #earthofficial #pnwonderland #undiscovertheworld #great_shotz #igworld_global #awesome_earthpix #ig_shotz #lander #special_shots #ig_naturelovers  #main_vision #pacificnorthwest #splendid_earth #pnwlife #master_shotsmaster_shots #upperleftusa #capturelandscapes #awesome_photographers #hot_shots #livewashington #thatpnwlife #global_hotshotz #LiveBravely #fantastic_shotzs #wonderfuldestinations #shotsdelight #GlobalCapture

I wanted to share this view as it was the most breathtaking one I’ve seen. It’s not everyday that you get to drive straight up to an alpine lake and get to experience views like these. . Not many know this but once you get to the lake you have to balance your way across a bed of logs (with your heavy camera bag) followed by the climbing of a huge rock formation. Was well worth it and would do it again! . . . . . . . . #master_gallery #outside_project #undiscover #earthofficial #pnwonderland #undiscovertheworld #great_shotz #igworld_global #awesome_earthpix #ig_shotz #outdoormagazine #special_shots #ig_naturelovers  #main_vision #pacificnorthwest #splendid_earth #pnwlife #master_shotsmaster_shots #canada🇨🇦 #capturelandscapes #awesome_photographers #hot_shots #livewashington #thatpnwlife #global_hotshotz #LiveBravely #fantastic_shotzs #wonderfuldestinations #shotsdelight #GlobalCapture

My first trip to Canada and all I can say is wow! Pictures don’t serve these areas justice because of the massive scale these places hold. It was truly a peaceful experience being able to roam throughout the Canadian wilderness and witness wildlife, landscapes and memories I will always look back on . I’ll be sharing my story about what I’ve been up to these past couple of days. Here’s a shot I’ve been wanting to get to what seems like forever. Thunderstorms and cloudy days was all that I was given. With the little sunlight I wanted to catch this location with some cloud breaks . I saw that the sun was peaking out from the clouds so I rushed to this area. As the sun set I snapped some shots and got lucky with the little light available. . . . . . . . . #master_gallery #pnwcollective #undiscover #earthofficial #outdoormagazine #undiscovertheworld #great_shotz #igworld_global #awesome_earthpix #ig_shotz #banffnationalpark #special_shots #ig_naturelovers  #main_vision #pacificnorthwest #splendid_earth #canada #master_shotsmaster_shots #upperleftusa #capturelandscapes #awesome_photographers #hot_shots #outsidemagazine #roadtrippin #global_hotshotz #LiveBravely #fantastic_shotzs #wonderfuldestinations #shotsdelight #canadasworld at Canada

I want to explain the importance of not geotagging your photos on social media for a whole audience to see. . Walking through this area would be something peaceful I thought. A place where people can enjoy nature and admire its beauty along with the wildlife. A place where quietness engulfs the forests and admirers can take in the smells, and the joy of Mother Nature. But what did I see? . I saw children screaming, trash in the forest, parents and children cross trailing, climbing on roots, picking at the flora, and an unbelievable amount of disrespect for this preserve. Engulfed by humanities flaw of destruction. . I’ve seen too much of this and it’s very disappointing to think that people who come to these parks come to enjoy what’s there and escape from society and to experience nature. Never again will I come back to this place because of how annoying and agitating I was with the way humans treated the natural area. This includes photographers who are also into outdoor photography. It’s our duty as well to voice a positive impact on this planet and not show destruction. What can we do now? . Start picking up any trash you see on the trail, stay on the trail and don’t expand it, politely tell others to respect nature and let others around them enjoy it, hike during prime season, and finally let’s not geotag photos anymore because of the destruction you could bring just by voicing that location to an audience. Even if it’s a small number of people, it takes only one to do something that others won’t enjoy coming back to. I share more of this on my story. Please tag a friend and let them know this! . . . . . . . . #master_gallery #pnwcollective #undiscover #earthofficial #pnwonderland #undiscovertheworld #great_shotz #igworld_global #awesome_earthpix #conservenature #moodygrams #special_shots #ig_naturelovers  #main_vision #pacificnorthwest #splendid_earth #pnwlife #master_shotsmaster_shots #upperleftusa #capturelandscapes #awesome_photographers #hot_shots #livewashington #thatpnwlife #global_hotshotz #LiveBravely #nogeotag #wonderfuldestinations #shotsdelight #GlobalCapture

Been spending some time over the Olympic peninsula and can say it’s quite a beautiful place to be. Always fun to change things up every now and then. Heading to Banff, Canada soon so keep an eye out for some sick shots! . . . . . . . . #master_gallery #pnwcollective #undiscover #earthofficial #pnwonderland #undiscovertheworld #great_shotz #igworld_global #awesome_earthpix #ig_shotz #olympic #special_shots #ig_naturelovers  #main_vision #pacificnorthwest #splendid_earth #pnwlife #master_shotsmaster_shots #upperleftusa #capturelandscapes #awesome_photographers #hot_shots #livewashington #thatpnwlife #global_hotshotz #kyaking #fantastic_shotzs #wonderfuldestinations #shotsdelight #GlobalCapture

I love hearing all of your questions on my story! Keep sending more to me even if I’m not asking. I always love to share my experiences with others. This shot was taken in Port Angeles atop a huge mountain that gave us 360 degree views! . . . . . . . . #master_gallery #pnwcollective #undiscover #earthofficial #pnwonderland #undiscovertheworld #great_shotz #igworld_global #awesome_earthpix #ig_shotz #adventurenthusiasts #special_shots #ig_naturelovers  #main_vision #pacificnorthwest #splendid_earth #pnwlife #master_shotsmaster_shots #upperleftusa #capturelandscapes #awesome_photographers #hot_shots #livewashington #thatpnwlife #bluemountain #LiveBravely #fantastic_shotzs #wonderfuldestinations #shotsdelight #GlobalCapture

Turn up your brightness! I always find myself coming back to this spot. This lake has always brought amazing views and some of the darkest nights I’ve experienced to the point in which the Milky Way is noticeable to the naked eye. Cool right? I was fortunate enough to align the Big Dipper over the mountains during the blue hour. Let me know what you think! . . . . . . . . #master_gallery #pnwcollective #nightphotography #earthofficial #pnwonderland #undiscovertheworld #great_shotz #igworld_global #awesome_earthpix #ig_shotz #moodygrams #special_shots #ig_naturelovers  #main_vision #pacificnorthwest #splendid_earth #pnwlife #master_shotsmaster_shots #upperleftusa #capturelandscapes #awesome_photographers #hot_shots #livewashington #thatpnwlife #global_hotshotz #LiveBravely #fantastic_shotzs #wonderfuldestinations #shotsdelight #lakependoreille at Idaho

When you’re up in the clouds the conditions change so quickly. At one moment you could be in a thick fog and not be able to see anything. Then you wait a couple minutes and are greeted with sunshine and a marvelous landscape! . . . . . . . #master_gallery #pnwcollective #undiscover #earthofficial #pnwonderland #undiscovertheworld #great_shotz #igworld_global #awesome_earthpix #ig_shotz #moodygrams #special_shots #ig_naturelovers  #main_vision #pacificnorthwest #splendid_earth #pnwlife #master_shotsmaster_shots #upperleftusa #capturelandscapes #awesome_photographers #hot_shots #livewashington #thatpnwlife #global_hotshotz #LiveBravely #fantastic_shotzs #wonderfuldestinations #shotsdelight #GlobalCapture

The trek up the mountain was a little scary considering the massive drop that you could easily fall off of. Once we were at the top it was the most peaceful view I’ve ever witnessed. Rolling fog and the smearing of clouds over the mountain was refreshing. I wish to come back here someday and camp it out to make the moment last longer! . . . . . . . . #bluemountain #pnwcollective #undiscover #earthofficial #pnwonderland #undiscovertheworld #great_shotz #igworld_global #awesome_earthpix #ig_shotz #moodygrams #special_shots #ig_naturelovers  #main_vision #pacificnorthwest #splendid_earth #pnwlife #master_shotsmaster_shots #upperleftusa #capturelandscapes #awesome_photographers #hot_shots #livewashington #thatpnwlife #global_hotshotz #LiveBravely #fantastic_shotzs #wonderfuldestinations #shotsdelight #outsideonline

Walking out to the edge of the cliff to snag this shot was an exhilarating experience. The bridge between life and death in a matter of a couple steps. It’s important to stay safe and to never risk your life for a photograph. The elements of nature are powerful and we should never take them for granted. This photo was shot at Cape Flattery, a very peaceful and elegant place. . . . . . . . . #master_gallery #pnwcollective #undiscover #earthofficial #pnwonderland #undiscovertheworld #great_shotz #igworld_global #awesome_earthpix #capeflattery #moodygrams #special_shots #ig_naturelovers  #main_vision #pacificnorthwest #splendid_earth #pnwlife #master_shotsmaster_shots #upperleftusa #capturelandscapes #awesome_photographers #hot_shots #livewashington #thatpnwlife #global_hotshotz #LiveBravely #fantastic_shotzs #wonderfuldestinations #shotsdelight #GlobalCapture

The Palouse has always been a huge part of my life as well as my work as a photographer. I always find myself going back to these places to find serenity and peace. This was a spot I found that was new to me and just goes to show that no matter how well we may know this planet, there’s always something new to those places we hold dear to us. . . . . . . . . #master_gallery #pnwcollective #undiscover #earthofficial #pnwonderland #undiscovertheworld #great_shotz #igworld_global #awesome_earthpix #ig_shotz #palouse #special_shots #ig_naturelovers  #treeoflife #pacificnorthwest #splendid_earth #pnwlife #master_shotsmaster_shots #upperleftusa #capturelandscapes #awesome_photographers #hot_shots #livewashington #thatpnwlife #global_hotshotz #LiveBravely #fantastic_shotzs #wonderfuldestinations #shotsdelight #GlobalCapture
