Went on an impromptu trip to try and get some rolling fog banks rolling over Mount Tam and were met with a giant one covering the whole mountain instead. Not quite what we expected but we worked with what we got anyway!

Golden hour in New Zealand takes on a totally different meaning. Right in the middle of open yellow fields stood this grouping of bright green trees, just begging for a photo.

If you ever get a chance to visit Milford Sound, make sure to get there as early as possible. The timing couldn't have been any more perfect; With the sun working its way into the sky casting long brilliant rays across the valley, each acting as a spotlight for the waterfalls surrounding us.

I don't get to hang out with @rajawashere nearly enough, but the few times we do see each other the following is guaranteed: Long nights taking photos, excellent food in good company and just enough drinks to have a hangover the next day. Looking forward to more adventures soon!

You don't always have to get those epic bangers in an exotic location, while flying in a helicopter during the most amazing sunset. Sometimes a simple stroll through a nearby neighborhood is all it takes.

When Mondays start with back to back meetings, it's helpful to keep these memories at hand. We had already been driving for roughly 12 hours but knew that once we saw the sun retreating behind the valley that we'd have to stop and watch it retreat for good.

When you're looking at another rainy weekend but all you want is to catch some hazy summer vibes. 🌅 .

On our last day in #newzealand we had every intention to take it easy. The previous days had taken place in 12 hour long car rides, hikes through rain forests, and sunrise boat tours, so a little rest sounded good to everyone. That plan was scrapped when one of us stepped outside onto our rented balcony. Within seconds the whole group was outside with our heads craned upwards, standing in disbelief over what we were seeing. If the stars were this clear with our bare eyes, what would a long exposure see?

Just casually creeping on my coworkers during important planning and strategy meetings. Thanks for letting me be weird, @fetjuel.

Been drawn more and more to shooting natural light portraits. At the end of the day, it's about being able to shine a light on people's stories, regardless of background.

Who knew that the end of our 12+ hour road trip through New Zealand would end with a golden beam of light stretching itself out in between two mountains? Always chasing the light.

Getting to this view was a bit of a challenge. A pair of Nike's, socks and two pairs of pants were ruined due to the mud that we ended up seeing too late while trekking through the high grass. Worth it.
