*AD •✨🚁🤘🏾• Cut and Create • A little piece I put together for @Braun_US during my travels across the beautiful city of Rio De Janeiro. @Braun_US challenged me to infuse my electric lifestyle into a video piece showing how versatile their shaver is especially for someone who lives a travel oriented lifestyle. The shaver is the worlds most efficient electric shaver designed for a quick and flawless shave which is super handy for my run and gun adventures across the world. Stay Adventurous Dear Friends •

#Ad •✨⛰🌊• Glitter & Gold • As the sun sets on this year-long project with @CanonUSA (see what I did there?), I hope I’ve been able to shed some light on the #EOSRebelT7i DSLR. It’s been my go-to run and gun for long hikes because it’s incredibly light. It’s got fast Autofocus for motion in shots (you can see how crisp the splash shots came out). It’s also fantastic in low light which makes for an excellent clue hour action. And finally, it’s got that “all so delicious” Canon color which makes post-processing an absolute dream. A super definite purchase if you’re looking for a quick shooter. You can also save $250 on the EOS Rebel T7i with the EF-S 18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM lens if you buy now! Thank you so much @CanonUSA for your support over the last year. Looking forward to creating more fantastic projects in the years to come. #ShootForGreatness Stay adventurous Dear Friends

• •✨💧🛥• Wave Washer • #Ad. Is it just me or has this year absolutely flown by? It feels like it should be May or June, but I’m already making plans for the next year of travel. I’m going to use the miles I’ve been earning with my Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® card from @citibank + @americanair. Curious to see where you’re headed in 2020! Sound off in the comments below. I’m hoping to make it back to this beautiful island for the third year in a row. #TravelOn Stay Adventurous Dear Friends •

• •🎈✨❄️• Sky Sailor • It’s been extremely gratifying to completely reset my creative method and focus on a series of hues for a stretch of 15 days. I’m coming to the end of this series, only about 6 images left before I switch colors again. I’ve decided to give the batches names. This series of blue shots was titled ‘Sea Spray’. The next set of images is titled ‘Milk and Honey’ - characterized by slightly subdued warm colors, with hints of earthy tones. Sounds a bit like some pretentious BS, but honestly it’s given me a whole new amount of zeal to approach this creative work with. Super stoked. Stay Adventurous Dear Friends •

*AD •💧✨🔬• Drip Drop • Over the next couple of weeks I’ll be bringing this fragrance along for every single adventure. Whether it may be a night of samba out on the streets of Rio, or a long drive across the plains South Dakota. The fragrance @Montblanc Explorer represents an invitation to a fantastic journey, an irresistible call for adventure, a call that I can’t help but answer. #MontblancFragrances Stay Adventurous Dear Friends •

• •✨⛰💧• Cliff Cutters • #Ad. Thanksgiving is fast approaching and I’m prepping myself for a thorough face-stuffing alongside family, followed by a fair amount of chill time. Aside from gorging on large amounts of food, this season is also very good for reflecting on what you’re thankful for. This year, I’m thankful for marvelous places like this that never cease to take my breath away. I’m even more thankful for moments of tranquilitiy between these busy trips. And I’m thankful for a very supportive family who are constantly pushing me to keep achieving my goals. What are you thankful for? @citibank @americanair #travelon Stay Adventurous Dear Friends •

•⁣ •🦈 ✨💧• Seeker of Solitude •⁣ ⁣ This is Bobby the Black tip. A sometimes misunderstood, gentle shark floating along the pacific on a lazy Saturday afternoon. ⁣ ⁣ There’s a very popular misconception made prevalent by Hollywood and television that Bobby wants to eat you for lunch. When this couldn’t be further from the truth.⁣ ⁣ Sharks are wild animals and they can be dangerous. There have been incidents of shark attacks that led to human fatalities. Yes. But sharks kill less than five people each year, while humans kill millions of sharks each year. There are nearly 500 different species of sharks in the earth’s oceans, but just about a dozen species are known to be potentially dangerous to humans.⁣ ⁣ Comparing to dying in a shark attack, you stand a greater risk of being killed by lightning, dying from stroke or heart disease, or even a car accident.⁣ ⁣ Don’t get me wrong, Bobby will put you in a blender if you try and catch these hands (or fins) 🥊. However, the popular notion that sharks seek out and deliberately attack humans is simply untrue. Most times, such attacks are the result of mistaken identity⁣ ⁣ Stay Adventurous Dear Friends •

•⁣ •✨🦢❄️• White Walker •⁣ ⁣ About a year ago, I was walking in the TV aisle of Best Buy and saw a background image of some pristine rolling dunes with crystal clear blue water meandering through them on one of the HD TV samples for sale. I immediately became obsessed with finding the exact location. Fast forward a few months and a fair bit of research, I present to you Lençóis Maranhenses National Park, a place so clean and so perfect it can only be the result of a minimalist dream. It’s located in Maranhão state in northeastern Brazil, just east of the Baía de São José, accessible by a 5 hour flight from Rio to São Luis followed by a 4 hour drive from the city center to the edge of the coastline. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ During the rainy season, the valleys among the dunes fill with freshwater lagoons, prevented from draining due to the impermeable rock beneath. So beautiful isn’t it?⁣ ⁣ Let’s just say I never casually walk past Best Buy TV’s anymore. ⁣ ⁣ Stay Adventurous Dear Friends •

• •🔪💧✨• Cut n Clean • Sometimes Mother Nature does incredible that leave me completely awestruck. This light show here, is one of those things. The lines in the photo are tiny little sunbeams cutting through the surface of wathe water and cascading down into the deep blue. Because the waves on the surface keep flowing, light mysteriously dances and sways in such a breathtaking fashion. No two photos taken had the same look.

• •⛰✨🌌• Star Seeker • If you’ve ever wandered how star photos like this are taken, I put together a little video highlighting the exact settings I use for shits like this. Click the link in my bio if you’re interested in scooping up that info. I also have a couple tips on there on how to make sure your shots stay sharp, how to find the darkest locations with the brightest milky ways and much more. Interested to hear what you think.

•⁣ •✨💧☁️• Sit & Simmer •⁣ ⁣ Little bit of a conversation starter here. There’s so much talk about how detrimental our screens are when It comes to connecting with the beautiful world we live in. (Zoom in to see these two lovers snagging a selfie as they soak up the warmth of this hot spring)⁣ ⁣ However on the other end of the spectrum, I think it’s pretty magical how social media and cameras creatively force us to get out of our comfort zone and experience the planet, all in the love of sharing said experiences.⁣ ⁣ I’m someone who’s background did not involve hiking or the love for the outdoors growing up at all. My family just had a different set of essential values. Having discovered the beauty of our planet through social media, I honestly find it hard to emotionally separate a stunning sunrise from the same experience through a camera lens. Curious to hear what you think concerning our intimate connection with our beautiful world through the lens of creativity and social media. ⁣ ⁣ Lately I’ve been making a purposeful effort to set down the camera during a magical sunset and just enjoy it. But honestly I’ve found my mind wander away from the moment and focus more on the mundane experience of pretending to be ‘in the moment’ ⁣ ⁣ I don’t know just some midweek thoughts. What do you think ? ⁣ ⁣ Stay Adventurous Dear Friends •
