Lately, I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about the sort of photography that I love to envelop myself in but more than that, I’ve been thinking about how it has changed over the years. Everything from the things I prefer to photograph to the way I photograph them and to the way I edit the things that I photograph. I think it’s important to take stock of these changes and embrace them.

To illustrate, I’ve been thinking a lot about my recent time on the Big Island of Hawaii. There was such an abundance of lush, natural scenery. And it was different in my ways to the sort of natural landscapes I’d shoot in Oregon and California. If anything, I was so amazed at how accessible these places were (assuming that you have a 4×4 off-road vehicle at your disposal). It was in that freedom of exploration coupled with the juxtaposition of lush hills against jagged lava rock that sent my mind into an inspired whirlwind. Suffice it to say that I can’t wait to head back.
