It might be Monday, but I wish it was still Memorial Day at Crescent Bar.

Between boat tie-ups, BBQs and secret spot smokeouts, I managed to snap a few photos. TBH I probably took more client photos than personal pics, but such is life…

I haven’t been to Crescent Bar since college and this trip by far surpassed my last. Our camp crew rocked, we had a responsible boat driver and the weather couldn’t have been better. I returned to Seattle with a mild sunburn and unforgettable memories.

Huge thank you to Mallory and Kyndall for making our girls road trip one epic adventure! Next up — SeaFair. Who’s ready!?

It’s crazy to think how times flies. Didn’t I just pack up my car to leave Los Angeles? It’s been one full year since I arrived in my homestate, so here’s a recap of the last 366 days. No joke.

I adopted a cat and named her Miss Kush.

I learned to clone, transplant, harvest, trim and package weed.

High Times reposted my photos four times.

I surfed more last summer than the last five years combined.

I hiked Lake Blanca, Lake Olalie, Rattle Snake Ledge and Mt. Pilchuck.

DOPE Magazine awarded me Photographer of the Year.

I shred Mt. Bachelor, Crystal Mountain and Snoqualmie Pass.

I changed my own brakes! Ok, with a little help from my dad…

I transitioned to Grassworks, a digital agency, and brought Western Cultured with me.

I joined a yoga studio, because it’s cheaper than therapy.

I went a year without sex.

I made a few trips to LA.

I trolled socialists who don’t understand economics.

I’ve used my photography to help transform the industry’s image of cannabis.

I let go of society’s expectation’s for life and loved mine even more.

I’m not sure what the next 365 days have in store, but I can’t wait to find out.

Winter Days at Denny Creek

A couple weekends back Andrea and I adventured out to Denny Creek for some winter wonderland photos. We definitely underestimated the drive, hike and snow, but these pictures made wading through knee-high pow worth it.

I met Andrea through my friend/her boyfriend Bobby, when she modeled in Western Cultured’s Vance Creek shoot. She is just as beautiful inside and out, and smart too (microbiologist). We’ve got a couple concepts in the works for 2016 and I’m very excited for the photo adventures in store.

To Bend and Back

Mom Bend

Shred for Brad

My mom and George invited me to Bend, Oregon for their annual New Years Eve ski trip. With a season like ours, how could I not? I hadn’t been to Bend since College. Plus George and Mom are two of my favorite people to ride with. Invite accepted.

One of my favorite things about Bend and back is the drive. The Pacific Northwest is speckled with rundown old farm towns towns and dilapidated buildings. They’re so remote, it’s an eerie quiet when you step out to take pictures. The church especially gave me chills, as I didn’t dare venture into the abandoned hospital (or whatever it was) behind it.

Mom, George and I had so much fun skiing, eating and drinks with friends, we didn’t take many photos in Bend (beside iPhone pics). Our first day the mountain closed early due to extreme winds and crazy frigid temperatures. The next day Mom and I walked around town while George went skiing. Luckily our last day we had clear skies and semi-soft snow conditions (I’ve ridden worse).

A quick note about the shirts George and I are wearing… Whenever I’m on a board I #ShredForBrad, one of my friends who suffered a serious wakeboard accident in 2014. The proceeds from shirt sales go to helping Brad’s recovery and spinal injury research. Whether it’s the top of Bachelor or buttery Lake Ronix, if I shred, I shred for Brad!

On my drive home I stopped in Shaniko, a ghost town in Oregon. Erected as a railroad town in 1900, Shaniko now holds a population of 30. Something about the snow and scenery made it impossible to pass up pictures. Who’s down for a road trip back this spring?

Shortly after taking these pictures, I accidentally drove 30 minutes east, spun out into a ditch, overflowed my gas pump by a lot then spent four hours trying to cross Snoqualmie Pass. But it’s a new year, so we don’t need to discuss those things.
