In August, I camped for seven nights in California's Sierra Nevada Mountains, exploring three different national parks as well as the national forest area. Camping for the first part of the trip at Bass Lake, I traveled both Bass Lake and Yosemite National Park. Then on the second leg of the trip, I drove to Sunset Campground in Kings Canyon National Park. From here, I explored both Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks as well as Hume Lake.
A few weeks ago I got to escape on a weekend camping trip to Belknap Campground in the Southern Sierra Nevada Mountains in the Giant Sequoia National Monument. My first camping trip of the summer season and it was exactly what I hoped for. One of my favorite images I shot during the trip is this long exposure image of the Tule River.
The secret lagoon next to Paradise Cove is a magical little spot to enjoy the underwater wildlife that Hawaii has to offer. While the other lagoons in Ko Olina may be beautiful and have a few fish, this natural lagoon is visited by Hawaiian green sea turtles, Hawaiian monk seals, and many types of different fish. Take a dive under the water with me and see the wonder of a different world in my underwater video.
This blog is a collection of images from Ko Olina where I got to live during my 6 week trip to Hawaii. Having the chance to see so many sunsets at the same few locations gave me a chance to capture the magical variations that nature provides. Ko Olina has 4 large man-made lagoons and 2 small natural ones. One of my favorite parts of my trip was the sunset picnic dinners and snorkeling at the lagoons.
One of my favorite places on Oahu is the North Shore! I loved staying on this side of the island while I was on my college documentary trip. This time around, I decided to visit Waimea Valley since I had never been. I wanted a chance to see more waterfalls and knew it would be full of amazing photographic opportunities with its lush tropical botanical garden.
Manoa Falls trails in a fairly easy 1.6 mile out and back trail near Honolulu. It can be a very muddy hike which makes it fun but also a little dangerous. At the end of the trail is Manoa Falls standing 100 ft high as it rolls over the mountains edge.
Topanga State Park is my go-to escape from Los Angeles! This past weekend was rainy and cloudy but Sunday afternoon the clouds broke and the sun was beaming. I packed up my gear and drove the short mountain drive to the park. I chose to go on the trail to Parker Mesa Overlook which I had never done before. It's a beautiful 6.5-mile roundtrip hike starting at Trippet Ranch and ending at a cliff edge along the coast with views of most of Los Angeles.

Over the past 11 months, I have been fortunate to travel to so many new places! From exploring the wilderness at a few National Parks and National Monuments to visiting New York City and the East Coast for the first time. Early morning sunrise, afternoons by the river and star trails at night in the desert, I've captured endless natural beauty. Take a look back with me at images from my adventures over the past year.
Just 20 minutes away from my house is the worlds largest wildlands within the boundaries of a major city, Topanga State Park. Stunning mountain view with rolling grasslands, shady oaks, and beautiful oceans views, this 11,000 acres of preserved wilderness is a treat to all who come to visit the Santa Monica Mountains.
Recently, I checked out a Lightroom preset & brushes workflow from SleekLens that's geared towards retouching Landscape photography. Check out my review with before and after images from the Through The Woods Workflow.
I recently got to visit the East Coast and New York for the very first time! It was an awesome trip full of new experiences and places. From the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State building, and the amazing Central Park, I tried to see as much as I could over the 4 days I had in New York City.
Malibu Creek State Park is called "The Yosemite of Southern California" because of its beautiful dramatic landscape. It has 8,000 acres of rolling tall grass plains with amazing mountain peaks and a creek that flows into the Santa Monica Bay. All this wilderness is right in our backyards here in Los Angeles. The State Park is only 25 miles from Downtown and I'm lucky enough to only live 15 minutes away. Malibu Creek State Park is part of the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, which itself is comprised of many individual parks and open space preserves covering the Santa Monica Mountains.
While attending college at Brooks Institute, I had the opportunity to take a documentary class in Hawaii. I spent the 6 weeks visiting 5 of the islands and snorkeling in various reefs. Here is a comparison of Hanauma Bay on Oahu and Barrier Reef on Molokai.
This beautiful spot of the Kings River was a few minutes walk from my campsite at Canyon View Group Camp in Kings Canyon National Park. The first night of our 5-night trip, my friends and I scoped out this section of the river and enjoyed watching the late afternoon sun drop down over the river and trees. The light was amazing and I knew this would be a perfect spot to capture the beauty and power of the surrounding landscape.

Often referred to as the "North American Galapagos" the Channel Island are a magic place to explore. I was fortunate enough to camp on Santa Cruz Island in the Channel Islands National Park over the summer last year. Though I had visited the island before, this was the first time I got to camp. When the last boat leaves back to the mainland of California, the island becomes a quiet paradise. Read the rest of my blog to see all the images from this island adventure.
Over the holidays I drove from Los Angeles to Washington state! What a beautiful, long drive with a wide range of environments, weather, and experiences. Having snow along the way was breathtaking. It was my first real experience of being in snow storms and seeing the snowflakes fall upon me. Multiple stops were made throughout the week and a half journey. Read the rest of my blog to see all the photos from my trip!
