“This lens is adrenaline.”
Early on I fell in love with bringing the art I’d learned in the darkroom to adventure photography. You're not strictly shooting the action. You're finding art within the movement and within the space.
“Right out of high school, I started reaching into the aspects of my life that I loved. Like I love music, so I would go and shoot live shows. I loved animals, so I tried a pet photography business. Then I fell in love with climbing.”
“Climbing is so addictive because we're always chasing that moment where you achieve something that was hard for you. Photography for me can elicit that same response: When I take a photo that I'm really excited about, I'm just filled to the brim with that exact same adrenaline.”
“If I’m going to spend a lot of time climbing something, it can’t just be for the difficulty—it also has to be because it’s beautiful.”
This lens is my love story.

This lens embraces the weird.
This is Gourdon, and he's just one of the many funny faces captured by my faithful camera. I treasure these moments that allow me to be creative and let the weirdness out to play.
This lens captures what we cannot see.
I love taking long exposures because my lens can capture more than I can't see with my bare eyes. It collects all the light that's there and creates this beautiful image.
