Wasootch Ridge

The snow has finally melted so Keisha and I decided to hike Wasootch Ridge. It was definitely an incredible hike. Started off with quite the incline, but after about a solid half hour the views were absolutely worth it. The trail started to flatten out a bit as we continued and started to go up and down several ‘peaks’. I like the trees here. They remind me of those little bonsai trees people put in fish tanks! :P

We eventually reached the point where most people turn around. To get to the true summit would have taken an additional two hours. The point we reached had amazing views, and a little box containing a guestbook/notepad for people to sign and date, as well as some items people are free to take if in need of (such as bandages, pens, paper, etc.).

Borgeau Hike

I have not been keeping up with posting photos on here. But hey, it’s never too late. Here are some photos from about a month ago, hiking Borgeau. I went with JB, Brandon, and Brian fairly early to capture the first light. It was gorgeous…or should I say BORGEOUS. Needless to say, our hike was somewhat unsuccessful due to such poor conditions. We crossed a few previous avalanche paths (the bottom GoPro images show all of the trees knocked down) and later got soaked in some rain - forcing us to head back.

All in all, I can’t say any adventure is a fail when you are able to make the best of it, hang with good people, gain new experiences, and make good memories.

Short Film | Brandon’s 2013 Mitsubishi Evo X

So some of you may know that I originally got into photography through video work. I started out purchasing my first camera with the intention of filming my friends and I skateboarding. Over time, I began to explore many different types of photography. Now, 7 years later, I find myself going back to rediscover film making.

I don’t have much for experience, and I definitely don’t have the gear for it. So in this short film, I used what I have (my iPhone) and came up with this:

I definitely learned a lot from this. I put a lot of effort into research, planning, execution, and editing. I have a lot more to learn and I couldn’t be more excited! I’d love to make more videos like this, so if you are interested in collaborating, shoot me a message! Maybe soon I’ll upgrade to a better camera for videos.

Shouts to the YouTube channel, Cars Onboard for the main source of my inspiration. For anyone looking to start doing photography or cinematography, or anything for that matter, here is my advice to you;

If you want to get good at something, find something or someone that does whatever it is that you want to do, and does it well. Use them as your inspiration. Watch what they do, study their work, research and plan. Then, figure out what they do, how they do it well, and try to copy it and produce something similar. I’m not saying you should copy everything that they do, because that just makes your work a duplicate of theirs. But over time, you will learn things, get better and be able to use your own creative mind to change things and do things differently. As long as you learn from your actions, you will never lose. Keep trying, keep learning, and keep progressing.

Thanks for watching!
