Angels Landing in Zion National Park

We did the 5 mile hike in the morning and ended up on top of Angels Landing around noon, right when the sun was way too harsh to shoot. So we decided to climb down and have lunch then make the hike up again in the afternoon. The second time ascending this massive cliff was extremely tough and one of the most strenuous things I've had to do. The difficult hike made it all the more worth it when we made it to the peak right as the sun was setting over the valley giving us the most beautiful light to shoot in. 

We shot as much as we could before the sun faded away then rushed down to make the last bus picking up the few hikers left on the trail. It was an incredible time and one of the most exhilarating moments of my life; completely recommend doing this hike even though it was very narrow at some points and you're literally hanging on to a chain the last leg of the hike as you climb to the peak. 

SOUTH BY SO WHAT MUSIC FEST 2017

Had an incredible time shooting at South By this year. The Story So Far headlined and of course they had an amazing set, I love when artists just love to have fun and play their music. 

Four Year Strong has always had a great influence on me and my music choice, being able to shoot their 10 year anniversary show for the first album I ever heard from them was a dream come true. One of the best events I've gotten to shoot so far.

 For an older group of guys they still move around extremely fast. It was a little tough to aim around and photograph them but nonetheless a blast to be up close jamming to their set.

Abandoned Nursing Home

Ryan sent us to an incredible location in Denton, Tx.

It was beautiful seeing the vines making their way through the building. The lighting could not have been any better. Of course, shot wide open on the Sigma 35mm 1.4 art series lens to get as much as that gorgeous light as possible. Great little Denton secret to explore.
