Always good to bring the camera along to document those things and places in life I enjoy. Shooting video for @NordstromMen and the #AGjeans Everett Fit Getting to spend the evening in a field with no where better to be always feels like home to me

Been reading the ‘Subtle Art of Not Giving an F’ this week and it’s been sticking with me real good:
“What pain do you want in your life? What is the pain that you are willing to sustain? What are you willing to struggle for? Happiness requires struggle, it grows from problems. Joy has to be earned through managing our struggles.”
When I think about that I remember leaving security behind live simply out of my pickup truck so I could shoot a documentary. I think about the time I drove hours to go see her and I put my heart on the line. I think about waking early in the bitter cold to feel the morning light.
But it’s all true y’all. Pain in the stumbling block that has more potential than anything to bring you into new consciousness.
Crossed paths out on the road with my dear friends Max & Bonnie Kate of @beadventureus yesterday I love sitting in their lovely airstream with no where better to be.
Their home reminds me that we need a beautiful space to recharge if we want to create and thrive, not just somewhere to exist in and sleep in. That’s exactly what’s so warm about being in their 30 foot home on wheels.
Their adventures are worthy and their love is impressive, worth a follow
A place of peace I’ve always found is sitting under a tree or out in an open field. A place to go and recenter. And that’s what I love most about being a photographer, I can live my life in that sort of place. I love assembling ideas, dreams really, of places and people and memories and feelings.
So this is my dream, a reality too, a feeling of a story I lived. Sitting in a field with my buddy @gregoryalanisakov, drinking wine, listening to songs, being here.
