Click the about link in my bio for the full story! —————— Hey friends and family, I'm excited to share a story that @az.illustrated did on me and my journey into photography! This has been a project that my good friend @aemerybrown and I have been talking about doing for a couple years now and we finally made it happen. For those who don't know Andrew, he is a very talented storyteller who has won many Emmy's for his work on AZPM (a local PBS channel here in Tucson.) Thank you Andrew for doing this and helping me get more and more comfortable in front of the camera and telling my story through your vision. Also thanks to all my friends, family, and everyone else who has supported me to get me where I am today! Not sure where I would be in life if I didn't move to Tucson and surround myself with a bunch of awesome and talented individuals. You all play a big part in who I am today. Keep shining! 🌟 —————— I’d love to hear your thoughts and any questions you might have! I know this story packs a lot in on such a short timeline, so please leave any questions or feedback in the comments. I’d love to hear from you!

Kirkjufellfoss (swipe left for full photo) —————————————— I just returned home from an amazing private workshop adventure in Iceland. 40 miles of hiking, 3,500 miles driven, and countless hours of photographing beautiful landscapes and the northern lights made for a unforgettable journey. Thank you @jayniebunnell for being such an awesome roadtrip partner. I’m so happy you finally got to see iceland and that you put your trust in me to guide you along the way. You impressed me each day with your new abilities and glad to call you a new friend! Excited to see your photos! —————————————— Have you been to Iceland? If so, which parts?

The best show on the planet! —————————————— To me, nothing is far more enjoyable to watch other than astronomical events such as the Aurora Borealis. I can’t tell you how much excitement and energy I get while out shooting the sky and something like this happens. Truly breathtaking. —————————————— Have you seen the northern lights? If so, where? And do you have any tips for those who want to photograph them? ——————— Single exposure ——————— Camera: Sony A7R3 Lens: Sigma 14 f/1.4 Shutter: 1 second ISO: 6,400 Tripod: @vanguardworld ALTA Pro 2+ 264 carbon fiber Memory: @pnyusa 512gb Elite SD Card
Aurora over the Great Geysir ————— A favorite stop along the Golden Circle here in Iceland is the highly active Geysir Hot Spring area with boiling mud pits, exploding geysers and the lively Strokkur which spouts water 30 metres (100 ft) into the air every few minutes. This was taken November 4th during a crazy aurora show. Probably one of the best nights for aurora I’ve had over here! ————— Single exposure ————— Camera: Sony A7R3 Lens: Sigma 14 f/1.4 Shutter: 3 seconds ISO: 6,400 Tripod: @vanguardworld ALTA Pro 2+ 264 carbon fiber Memory: @pnyusa 512gb Elite SD Card
Blessed ———————— Last night we were blessed with one of the best aurora displays I’ve ever seen in Iceland. I can’t believe how fortunate my workshop guest and I have been as this was our 4th night in a row of aurora! This was the beginning of our many hours of shooting aurora and it was still going when we decided to call it quits. I have shot a lot of aurora in Iceland over the last couple years and this has to be my new personal favorite. Excited for potential night number 5 tonight 🙌🏼 ———————— Single Exposure ———————— Camera: Sony A7R3 Lens: Sigma 14 f/1.4 Shutter: 1 second ISO: 8,000 Tripod: @vanguardworld ALTA Pro 2+ 264 carbon fiber Memory: @pnyusa 512gb Elite SD Card
The Lights! ————— Caught the lights yet again In Iceland last night! Technically this is our 3rd night in a row but the 2nd night was pretty faint. We’ve been dealing with weather issues but fortunately for my workshop client, I know how to read the weather here and found us clear skies with good foreground! We ended up leaving Snæfellsness to Hruanfoss which was one of my first locations when I visited Iceland a few years ago. Its a pretty cool place with a long line of smaller waterfalls. I’ve only seen it mid-day so catching a nice sunset and the aurora was a special treat! ————— Camera: Sony A7R3 Lens: Sigma 14 f/1.4 Shutter: 10 seconds ISO: 3,200 Tripod: @vanguardworld ALTA Pro 2+ 264 carbon fiber Memory: @pnyusa 512gb Elite SD Card
Grotta Island ————— Our first day In Iceland didn’t disappoint! My workshop client and I arrived early, jumped in a rental car, and arrived in downtown Reykjavík just in time to catch a beautiful sunrise over Hallgrímskirkja. Later on, we caught sunset over the famous Sun Voyager and Harpa Hall. After that we treated ourselves to a nice Icelandic meal followed by some northern lights! We are now in Snaefellsness for a couple days before heading to Vík 🙌🏼 ————— Camera: Sony A7R3 Lens: Sigma 14 f/1.4 Shutter: 20 seconds ISO: 3,200 Tripod: @vanguardworld ALTA Pro 2+ 264 carbon fiber Memory: @pnyusa 512gb Elite SD Card

Western Winter Nights ————— I found this really nice windmill in the desert the other week. I was really excited to see that it was in such great shape and the tank was full of water so I could get this reflection shot of the stars. Can you spot the Andromeda Galaxy in the sky? ————— Camera: Sony a7s2 Lens: Tamron 15-30 f/2.8 Shutter: 20 seconds ISO: 12,800 Single Exposure Tripod: @vanguardworld ALTA Pro 2+ 264 carbon fiber Memory: @pnyusa 512gb Elite SD Card
Falcon 9 Rocket Launch ————— I’m still so happy that I got to witness the Falcon 9 Rocket Launch last Sunday evening. It was such an unforgettable experience! Seeing the sky light up as if a comet just entered our atmosphere and created a Nebula was such a surreal moment. Something you could only see in dreams or a video game turned into reality. Turn your sound on and watch this video! It’s condensed into 1 minute but the whole event lasted around 12 minutes. So beautiful, I wish it stayed in the sky haha.
