There was 4 nice days of weather in May. I was counting. I was able to shoot on all 4.
Here are a few lifestyle stock images that reminds us of why we live in the NW, and what our sunny 3 months of the year can offer.
One of my goals for my photography business was to have an image published with National Geographic Adventures… It was the first magazine where I started noticing a niche that I wanted to be a part of. I started researching credit lines and down I went, into the rabbit hole. The first image that inspired me to pursue outdoor adventure photography was a cover image from Crater Lake. Last December, the magazine folded and published it’s last edition. But the name continues online with a blog through NG. Today, I discovered that one of my images from a Youth Dynamics guide training trip was selected for a post. And like before, success looks different than what I thought. But I think success is really just being happy about what you have accomplished. Maybe it is being content, but to me it is more than that.
It was a sweet summer. Somehow, in the coastal mountains of British Columbia, we squeaked by with maybe a week’s worth of rain. The rest of our days volunteering for the adventure program called Beyond Malibu was sunny, warm, dry and fulfilling. My wife and I spent June-August bringing groups of teens and adults into the mountains to summit peaks and to grow as a community. We are processing our experiences and looking forward to next season already.
Until then, I will be shooting and continuing the art of photography. I have images for sale on my website, and details about purchases on the link above called ‘Buy A Print, Send Me To Beyond.’ There are a handful of people who are on a list to receive a special online gallery of unseen images for printing. If you desire to have that portfolio sent to you by email, please let me know. My email is located on my website contact page. Here is a reminder about costs for prints:
