This had to be one of then best camps I’ve ever had. Thousands of acres all by myself. $6. #vanlife #campvibes #vscocam #glencanyon #utah #travelutah #mymorningview #doesnotsuck (at Glen Canyon National Recreation Area)

"Muffin Man" 2010. I was tent camping in the hills in Northern California and one early morning I stopped at an RV camp to get coffee at a small shop. A man in the back came out and asked me if I wanted one of his fresh baked muffins. I said "no thanks" and left with my coffee and regretted it the moment I stepped out the door. I immediately went back in and said, "sure, I would love to try one of your muffins!" We started talking outside and I asked to take his portrait just as he was. When I reviewed the image later, I got a feeling I’ve never had before. That’s the moment I wanted to keep taking portraits. Up until this meeting, I took mostly landscape shots. Thank you Muffin Man! #makeportraits #personalwork #meetingamericans

Hanging out with Maxie this morning in the mountains. #vanlife (at On the Mountain In Idyllwild)

In the evenings when I’m on the road, I usually spend time editing photos on my phone before bed. Max is ready to call it a day but came out wondering where the beeping was coming from (I’m controlling my beeping go pro wireless From my iPhone app). #vanlife #gopro #maxtravels

We love beach walks. #vanlife #maxtravels


I explored caves today! It was pretty amazing. I found a small opening in one and it took me through to a hidden cave with a frozen floor. I turned off my lights and sat in the cold, silent, pitch black cave for a while. It was exhilarating. #cavelife (at Lava Beds National Monument)
