Photo Gallery: 2018 Kentucky Waterfalls

Kentucky is really wet. And in 2018 many counties set records for rainfall. This, coupled with the terrain that includes large rock overhangs, can result in some spectacular waterfalls.

Trail Portrait Photography for Merrell Shoes' OneTrail Marketing Campaign in Kentucky

Trail Portrait Photography for Merrell Shoes' OneTrail Marketing Campaign in Kentucky

I was contacted by a team from Merrell and Camp4 Collective, who were looking for outdoor photographers to participate in a group photo project. The concept was simple: one photographer in each state would go out on an iconic trail and capture candid portraits of the hikers and landscapes, all on the same day.

That right there is tasty road trip.

As Jen and I made our way around the western United States, we scheduled a few key stops to work on photo and video projects (it's not all whiskey and rock climbing!) While we were in Lake Tahoe, we managed to spend the day creating some images for a local bike shop, featuring skilled riders on some of Lake Tahoe's best trails.

Bouldering Photography with the Zeet Rock Climbers

Things are finally starting to pick up a bit in this small town called Cortez which I call home. I've been able to join a group of climbers, and every Monday we are able to get together for some chill climbing and socializing. Much needed after a long day of blogging and editing!
