Since I picked up a camera I wanted my photos to be a tool to bring people closer to the ocean. The sea was my first canvas & water is still my favorite subject. At times it can be overwhelming to think of how we can give back to it & the creatures that call it home. It's often through smallest actions that big changes are made. . I got a text from my good buddy @ladzinski to #stopsucking... which felt standard pretty given Keith's sense of humor. Literally one of the funniest dudes I know. He explained this campaign to bring public awareness to the excessive and wasteful use of plastic straws. The @lonelywhale strawlessocean.org campaign . If it sounds crazy please take this into consideration: Every single day, Americans alone use over 500 MILLION straws. All that plastic, for 1 measly drink at a time, becomes garbage- much of which ends up in the ocean, landfills and even micro fragments in our drinking water. It's sadly true and completely fixable. I've seen straws on the most remote beaches of the planet.. plastic doesn't discriminate.. it is everywhere. A minor conscience effort can make a difference. Big change can be achieved through small efforts, if we all made this small choice to simply avoid using plastic straws it would go a long way. I'm challenging my friend @renan_ozturk next to not suck 馃馃徎 ( might as well challenge his wife @taylorfreesolo the same 馃槄)

It's often you (the viewer) that comes to mind when I'm shooting photographs like this. I've gone to great lengths to bring scale & ultimately understanding to an otherwise foreign and undefinable landscape. While flying over these braided river systems, this small Piper Cub below our Cessna helped give a perspective for how large these glacial floodplains appear with the naked eye. Matching our speed as we created this image was almost impossible as we struggled to maintain a distance of 1,000 ft apart. I've never felt more sick while trying to focus through a viewfinder as our plane turned to reveal the ground below. . . A collection of this 6 year body of work is still on display at @paulnicklengallery in NYC as apart of 'Vanishing Worlds' a fine art show that looks at some of our most delicate landscapes. Signed copies of my book are also available.

When it comes to Wilderness everyone has an opinion. I want to know what yours is! Next month I am guest editing the Wilderness Issue of @whalebonemagazine along side my good friend @charles_post . I wanted to create an article created entirely on social interaction & opinion. Basically your comments. So I'm asking two questions that seem pretty relevant today. . 1. Wilderness at the Expense of Access or Access at the Expense of Wilderness?... meaning should trails & Access be created so everyone can enjoy - even those limited to wheelchairs. Or should we limit access, preserving the wildness but limit it to a select few. . . 2. What role ... if any... does social media play in our national parks & Wild places? . . Please understand- by commenting you are agreeing to be apart of this article & have your comments published with your handle credited.
