There is something special about standing among waterfalls, towering granite cliffs, deep valleys, and the ancient sequoia trees. Yosemite was the first place I took a camera and ultimately the reason I fell in love with photography. Huge thanks to @smartwool for making this trip out to Yosemite possible. It was great to explore some of my favorite areas of the park with @whitneyljames a few weeks back before the first snow storm! It’s also always extremely humbling to get out on a highline a couple thousand feet above the valley floor in the birthplace of slacklining itself! #gofarfeelgood #yosemite #nationalpark #venturebeyond #slackline #highline

I’m 33ft (10m) below the surface, backed into a tight corner with a wall of spiny sea urchins inches from my body, my mind bouncing between fear, camera settings, and the elegance of @jillyfish831 - all while trying to ignore my body’s signs that my one breath of air is running out.
 I’ve always been attracted to things that push me mentally and physically. When I was a child, water would pour into my ears as a result of an ear surgery. It took me years to overcome my fear of water, even trying to touch the bottom of the pool didn’t seem possible. Freediving became a goal of mine over the last few years and after a ton of research, training, and help from friends, I am stoked to be able to explore parts of the world that very few people get to see and share some of those experiences with all of you! QUESTION- Should I post more black and white images? I love shooting in B&W but always hesitate to share them here. Thank you again for all of your continued support! #freediving #hawaii #blackandwhite @aquatech_imagingsolutions

I woke up at 4:30am yesterday to catch the first snowfall in Yosemite Valley. It was 10°F (-12°C) but absolutely beautiful to witness El Capitan and the Merced River under the light of the small crescent moon. A lot of you were asking for my camera setting on my Stories today, so here they are- Shutter Speed- 25 seconds. Aperture- f/4. ISO- 6400. Let me know if you have any questions! #yosemite #nightphotography #camerasettings #yosemitenationalpark

Drove up to Yosemite last night to catch the first snowfall with my good friend Quin- @everchanginghorizon. I love how he always has a different approach to places, like taking his paddle board out in below freezing conditions (he was out there cruising around for almost an hour). Check out his feed for the video and all kinds of other epic content! #yosemite #snow #paddleboarding #yosemitenationalpark

I love the fact that there are so many different ways to see and experience the landscapes around us! This weekend I was stoked to have the opportunity to try something new and link up with @polarisadventures to rip around the desert and access places outside of Zion National Park that I had never been to before. Definitely something to add to the bucket list as an epic way to cover lots of ground and reach even more beautiful and remote locations! #zionnationalpark #coralpinksanddunes #polaris #utah

A few days ago we arrived at this incredible location after hiking through some of the most beautiful and untouched canyons I have ever seen in the Southwest. I’ve been extensively traveling through the Western U.S. for 6 years and love the fact that I’m still finding new places like this. @reyannemustafa and I had a blast and were impressed that we didn’t see a single piece of trash or a single human the whole day! Out of respect for the locals and the landscape, I’ve decided not to give the exact location of this spot, but the Southwest in general has some of my favorite landscapes and National Parks in the country I encourage all of you to explore this area if you have the opportunity. Get out there! #southwest #adventure #explore #nothavasupai

A week ago we braved the cold and scored this incredible camping spot in Yosemite all to ourselves! Huge thanks to @smartwool for keeping us warm and making this trip possible, and to @whitneyljames for always smiling and laughing, even when the temps dropped to 18ºF (-8ºC) and the winds picked up at 10 pm and were blowing at 20+mph (40 kph) all night. Totally worth experiencing this beautiful place in complete solitude! #gofarfeelgood #yosemite #nationalpark #venturebeyond #backpacking
