I had hopes for a wild sky of stars on our trip, unfortunately mother nature had other plans...a long exposure with the fading light from sunset however worked out just fine. That's the beauty of photography while backpacking. You can't control anything. You just have to make the most of what you are given.

I'm just getting back to NC, from some amazing times out West. From beautiful canyons in the valleys to the highest peaks in Zion. I'm exhausted but I am inspired. There's so much to see out there and there's so many wonderful people to meet along the way as well.

leading the way on day one of our trip. We slept on the east rim last night and are currently making our way to observation point for our last leg of the trip in the park. After that it's one more slot canyon and then vegas for a bachelor party. Life is good today.

Clemson bound for my first wedding of the year, then it's off to the land of red rocks and slot canyons. Zion, we're coming for you!

The stars in the outer banks are pretty on point. This was made with one of the techniques I'll be teaching in my next astrophotography workshop!

After getting back from the Islands it was off to teach in the OBX, I'll be cleaning sand out of my gear for the next year but gosh it's nice to spend time on the ocean.

As founder and CEO of this new endeavor I officially declare Mondays will now be Fundays. Whether it's a sunrise, some fly fishing, mountain biking or just relaxing, I don't ever want to dread a Monday again. Happy Monday friends :P

A fiery sunrise on the shores of St. John. Shooting coastal landscapes was a nice change and requires quite different techniques than I'm used to here in the mountains. I'm so excited to head to the OBX tomorrow night to teach and shoot on some NC islands! We still have 2 spots if anyone is interested I can probably make a last minute discount!

Crystal clear water and old ruins line the coast of the island. I'm finally back home, I missed my pups and the cool Mountain mornings :) we have two spots left on our OBX Workshop this weekend if anyone wants to join!

I'm certain I've learned the meaning of paradise these past two weeks. The USVI stole my heart. Where's your favorite place to relax and get away?

Thanks for all the love and support yesterday friends. I forgot to mention if you are going to quit your job, doing it from a tropical island with a strong drink in your hand makes it that much sweeter! and I have been exploring St. Thomas and St. John for two weeks now and have loved every minute of it. If anyone is ever planning a trip hit us up we'll point you towards the goods :)

Yesterday I quit my job. A place I worked so hard to climb high at and a place I called home for 10 years of my life. I had the guarantee of a big paycheck, benefits, a cellphone, laptop, company car and a 401k. Some might deem that sort of move as "crazy". But I'm a firm believer you are crazy if you wake up every single day and dread whatever it is you call a career. It's crazy how big corporations treat people. And it's crazier that people put up with it. The past two years the company I worked at has slowly become an absolute nightmare. For the first time in my life I understood the meaning of depression. I have no guarantee I'm going to make a lot of money this year. I may even go broke. There's probably no chance I'll be able to afford a trip to an island this time next year. But there is a 100% guarantee that now I'm going to wake up every single day and do what I love. Time flies by so fast, I know people my age with cancer, and I've lost friends suddenly all sorts of ways over the years. When my time comes I'm not ever going to look back with heavy regret that I ever let myself stay unhappy. And if chasing my dreams and starting a business doesn't work out, then I'll go find a job I don't hate. I usually don't get too personal on here...but I hope this inspires others to chase their passions and never settle for anything less than the life they dream. Pc -
