What is you favorite subject to shoot? Water
Who are your biggest influences? Ansel of course. I love landscapes. There is something about the journey I find amazing. I'm lucky to have a wife that is an artist as well and loves to travel. I also really enjoy Richard Avedon, Annie Leibovitz, Dean "Blotto" Grey, Scott Serfas, Morgan Maassen, and Chris Burkard
What photography trend makes you cringe? HDR can get a bit out of control. I like to keep the image as true to the original scene as I can. Sometimes it can look so tooney I find it hard to enjoy.
What's it been like shooting a Rumpl? It has been amazing. There's really nothing better than having a product that fits my lifestyle and getting creative with it. My wife loves it as well. One of the first items we pack when loading the jeep up for the weekend adventure is the Rumpl. Its also incredibly warm which is crucial when your camping on the road. Its funny. I've found it to be this item that I include in many of my shoots. having the color be chosen by the Rumpl team was especially fun. I had no Idea what I was going to get. Normally like most guys I would have asked for blue but instead I had a green one sent my way which was a challenge at first. I love challenges!
