Your landscape photography is fantastic, but you also shoot downhill skateboarding events. Tell us a little about the sport and why you enjoy photographing it in such scenic environments.

For the most part it is skaters riding gravity down mountainous roads. I’m endlessly inspired by the way riders use and respond to the road. Even the roads themselves are inspiring, they can be beautiful structures designed to over come the brutality of nature. Seeing riders blast down an epic, scenic road is an art form unto itself. From a photographic stand point what’s not to like? Action, leading lines and a beautiful backdrop.

Just live. Not all of us ride horses, climb mountains, have our own gardens, work on 1950’s Land Rovers or what have ya, and that is a-ok. You don’t have to fit in the confines of living “old-school” or trying to be “genuine”. Do your day to day and enjoy that! Your journey is just as captivating as anyone’s, regardless of how many filters make it look good on @instagram. It’s okay to just live, no one can ask anything more from you, and you can only one-up it by living well. - 1924
