10 Days to Become a Social Media Boss?! – My Experience with the Institute of Code’s Bali Bootcamp

In November of 2018, I got on a plane and traveled 25+ hours completely around the world to a small island in Indonesia that I had only heard about twice in my life: Bali. But my journey started a few months back when one of my favorite travel Instagrammers posted about teaching a course in Bali – you would get the opportunity to learn how to make a living photographing and traveling the world like she did – pretty much my dream job (or quite possibly everyone’s dream job). The course was run through a place called the Institute [...]

Visiting the National Parks During the Winter 2019 Government Shutdown

I just finished up a winter National Park road trip through California, stopping in Yosemite, Sequoia, and Death Valley – my experience visiting during the 2019 government shutdown is part 1 of this blog post. Stay tuned later this month for part 2: Winter Road Trip Adventures in the National Parks of California – Yosemite, Sequoia, & Death Valley. First thing first – you should NOT visit the parks during a government shutdown. But wait, you think – you are writing an entire article about visiting them! Before I left for this trip, I was very nervous to visit [...]

Break Out of Your Winter Funk with 15 Photos That Will Inspire You to Explore Maui

Whew that title was a mouthful! Last summer, I went on a trip out to Maui – it wasn’t my first time out to the islands, but it was my first time that this trip would be a dedicated photography trip, every sunrise and sunset planned for optimal shooting - pretty much my dream trip. I was lucky enough to travel with my partner, who suffered through many long days as I attempted to get the most out of my time there. But I treated him with lots of yummy food to keep him going, and we spent many afternoons [...]

My 2019 National Park Travel & Photography Bucket List Around the U.S. and Beyond

On my last post of 2018, I wrote about how each year I have a goal of traveling to 1 new US National Park, 1 new US state, OR 1 new country each year. 2018 blew that goal out of the water with 6 new national parks, 4 new states, and 2 new countries. For 2019, I want to keep pushing more travel content, moving from just a Pacific Northwest focus, and my goal is to visit at least 3 new national parks, 2 new states, AND 1 new country. This year, I won’t be able to do as [...]

Packing List: Europe

I just recently returned from a trip to Italy, where I took real estate photographs and video for two vacation rentals, and I got the opportunity to see and photograph the process of how olive oil is made. I am excited to share those projects soon, but I've crazy busy since I've been back getting caught up with other work projects, plus I got slammed with not only the usual jetlag, but also a cold, so it was quite the double header. Thus this week I am taking a break from photography blog posts and talking more about travel, [...]
