Wild heart

Steichen said a portrait is not made in the camera but on either side of it. It’s important to document and tell the stories of those we love. Our little details matters ya know?
I know one day if I’m lucky enough to be an old man I’ll look back at all these images with joy.
If you’re not busy today point your camera towards something you love. Photographs have this beautiful ability to age so gracefully.


Ready for summer, but it’s lovely to see snow again ❄️ enjoying the little things, the in between things


‘Geese appear high over us, pass, and the sky closes. Abandon, as in love or sleep, holds them to their way, clear in the ancient faith: what we need is here. And we pray, not for new earth or heaven, but to be quiet in heart, and in eye, clear. What we need is here.’
I have a deep love for Wendell Berry. In a brilliant book Jayber Crow he wrote: ‘I was a young man. I hardly knew what I knew, let alone what I was going to know.’
I turn 35 this year. When Instagram was still wet behind the ears I was 27. Wild how days go slow and years go fast.
But I’m feeling every bit of 35, in the best possible way. I’m looking less for those 4x4 roads, roads to test my sanity and truck. My finger tends to wander towards rivers and streams on the map these days.
So here’s a tiny slice of our life today. My best dog watching from a rock and I coming back for kisses every so often 😊


Camping with a friend for a week is bound to bring ya closer together, grateful this fella has been out here with me. And wrapping the photo shoot I’ve been on with @HunterBoots for @Target ✨


This sort of places leaves ya changed on the other side


I ain’t the man I use to be


Stripes & 🌵! Loves being in the desert this time of year, before full on summer catches us. This lovely beach towel that’s a part of the @HunterBoots for @Target collab this spring that I’ve been photographing. Limited time only collection out 4/14 (link in my bio if ya wanna see more) #HunterxTarget


They say only when we allow others to be who they are, rather than who we want them to be, we will have peaceful relationships.
I never catch many fish when Maddie is swimming between my legs. But I love who exactly who she is. And I honestly can’t imagine fishin’ without her, wouldn’t trade it for all the trout in the river ✨


Ran into my favorite Frenchies in the desert 🙃 I’m fairly sure that’s what you call friends from France? Or it’s breed of dog with cute ears?
It’s neat how we grew up thousands of miles apart but the same films let us fall in love with the American landscape. 2018 is all about livin’ it well and sharing it with folks who make my heart warm. I love these Frenchies ✨


Quick bath time (Maddie loved it 🙈) after stomping around in the dirt with @HunterBoots for @Target. This limited time only collection is out on 4/14 (link in my bio) #HunterxTarget #ad


She’s learned that if she starts starting at me around 4pm then I’ll feed her at 6pm like a clock


Still in awe of this beautiful land we all share.
I don’t care what anyone at the top is tweeting or what the TV is spewing, when you get out here and start meeting folks in the dirt it’s full of incredible people.
In a few short days I’ve had conversations with folks with roots from Guatemala, Navajo nation, Hopi tribe, and Michigan. All of them fine humans to share this land with and call it home.
