Ellen and I decided a few years ago that we didn't want our lives to be defined by what we wished we'd done. So we began preparing for an epic adventure that has been a lifelong dream for us both.

We gave away or sold (almost) everything we owned to buy a truck and a small travel trailer... Hoss and Gertie, respectively.

Ellen and her mom spruced up the inside of Gertie to make it our home.

So we set sail from our old home in Dallas June of 2016, to explore the U.S. and Canada for a period of 12-48 months (or forever... who knows!). With insatiable wanderlust and a deep curiosity for our world, we go. We plan to visit every National Park along the way, as well as many other interesting stops as Ellen blogs. I will continue to make prints from the road of our national treasures. You can find them for sale HEREBuy one, it's good for you! Did you know that just looking at images of nature can help reduce anxiety and depression... and even make you smarter!? National Geographic says so... READ MORE HERE.

I will be shooting for my commercial and editorial clients as we go, and leading workshops all over the western US and world, to share what I've learned about light, the art (and business) of photography, and life. Join me on one of my most grand workshop adventures!

Follow along as we try to capture and share the beauty of America's wild places!

Watch the PREVIEW for our journey


For daily updates and photos, follow me on Instagram and sign up for my quarterly email, jam packed with interesting info on art, travel, photography tips, and more. I will also be releasing e-books periodically to share a bit of what I've learned along the way.

And if you feel inclined, follow along below as we will be updating the map regularly as plans (inevitably) change. You can also view a calendar that outlines where we'll be and when exactly so we can meet up with us on the way! Check back often for updates.

BE INSPIRED

Our desire is that we would inspire everyone to enjoy and protect our great world and America's National Parks. We realize it isn't always possible for everyone to visit them all, but we hope that this will encourage everyone to plan that next family vacation in one of America's treasures. Better yet, come meet meet up and camp with us! We are ambassadors for the outdoors, and we would be happy to help others share in the joy of being outside.
