📷: @trent_mitchell_ // I started my career as a sports photographer running the sidelines at the big events but it wasn’t before too long that I grew tired of the immediacy since that often forced me to sacrifice creativity. Pursuing the adventure photography full time instead allowed the chance to create space and move at a slower pace. Although thanks to social media, the urgency of immediacy did find its way to slowly creep back in and with it came this feeling of pressure to succeed on every project. Reality for me is that it doesn’t always work out. There are continual setbacks particularly when I work in an arena where so many things are naturally out of my control. The image I dream of to capture in Norway with @kimi_swimmy still lingers in the mind, but I can tell you with sincerity that this trip we took to Norway is one of the best experiences I’ve had. ✨Link in Bio ✨ @whalesunderwater @darrenjew @pxlexplorer @garminoutdoor #descentmk1 @aquatech_imagingsolutions

I often find myself choosing curiosity over common sense as I seek out these dream images, knowing there are no guarantees in these pursuits. Last year, I ventured to Norway with dear friends @trent_mitchell_ @kimi_swimmy with the amazing team from @whalesunderwater to seek out the opportunity to freedive with orcas. It’s exciting to see the short film be released today with @garminoutdoor & share the full story behind the lens —> Link In Bio <— And huge thanks to the extra support from @aquatech_imagingsolutions 🙌🏼 #internationalwomensday #descentmk1 #freediving

@acroracio flying amongst the Karakoram Range in northern Pakistan. This was one of the flew flights we could achieve when we returned in 2016 with @tomdedorlodot @hpitocco as the weather became more turbulent than usual in the summer months. It’s still one of the most incredible sights I’ve witnessed to be flying amongst one of the most dramatic mountain ranges in the world. #karakoram #pakistan #paragliding

A quick 24hr backcountry mission to Nevada with @forrestshearer. I have to admit, I never knew how beautiful the mountains are in Nevada even with the winds raging hard around us that day. @garminoutdoor #garminambassador #inreach

On the high plains of Wyoming, a supercell gathers momentum and I remember standing there with @nampix @ladzinski @skiparmstrong @tobypike where there was an eery sense of ‘the calm before the storm’ as not a breath of wind could be felt in this moment. #stormchaser #supercell
