I used to be confident with my words on here. When my photography career was starting, I was convinced that “if it can happen to me, it can happen to you”. As time went on, I began to see just how fortunate and privileged I was (am). I am a healthy, 28 year old white dude, from America with a loving family. If I was from another country, I probably couldn’t have done it. If I had a family of my own, it would’ve been much harder. If I was in high school, I would have continued my education thru college. I get reached out to by people worldwide, who want to do what I do, and I never know what to say. It actually keeps me up at night... I debate giving a canned answer, or my true opinion: * You either have the personality or you don’t. If you’re destined to be a photographer, creativity will flow, your work will shine and rise to the top. * Find what makes you unique as an individual, and develop a style that you’re proud of. * After you’ve found your style, then look at it from a business standpoint. What type of companies would be interested in your work? * Be aware of what others are creating, but don’t copy, and DON’T compare yourself. That will be the death of your desire to create.

Cebu has been a waterfall paradise. This one was my favorite so far... felt like an Asian version of Havasupai.
Thanks for leading the way @ninjarod🤙Traveling on assignment for @timothysykes

I met @jess.wandering a few years ago on a road trip. One of our first topics of conversation was the classic question: If you could drop everything and leave right now where would you go? She said, without hesitation, the Philippines. .
After island hopping thru the country for the past few days with her, I now see what all the fuss is about. This place is over the top beautiful. .

I grew up staring at these three Eucalyptus trees in my parents backyard. Dreaming of making a clubhouse up there. Me and my mom would spend hours planning out the design, and how to make it cool. My little kid imagination was sparked. Well, finally, last May I climbed up and laid the first boards. Worked on it all summer between photography jobs, and just stayed my first few nights in it. I can’t stop smiling every time I climb up. Or when the wind blows and the whole place sways with it. .
