Behind the Scenes

I look into what it's like being a landscape photographer. I do this for my parents who always say that I don't share enough photos of myself.

Sally and I are hiking the Virgin River Narrows in Zion National Park. This hike has to be one of the best in the American Southwest. You have to walk in the river, and we've had water up to our chests at times, but it's so worth it!

I love camping, but I hate dealing with a tent, especially in the morning when I'm up early and trying to get ready for a sunrise shoot. I do however love the rooftop tent on my 4Runner. I can set this tent up in about a minute and pack it away in about 3 minutes.
