A good cup of coffee.
No matter how tough things get, there is always someone else suffering more. My worst day is someone else’s best.
I have a pretty awesome job, but if I didn’t do what I did, I could see myself as some sort of outdoor tour guide. Really anything that keeps me out of an office.
Marrying my wife, hands down.
I joined the Coast Guard very young. I wanted a chance to serve in a search and rescue service and learn the skills to help others. I’ve had an incredible career working with the best group of men and women. When I got into photography, I wanted a chance to capture unique perspectives not everyone has a chance to see. I’m glad I can share my journey with so many people.
Don’t get worked up on the things you can’t control. And never ever quit.
In a profession with a lot of gear, it’s important to protect it. I have a couple iM2975 Storm Cases I travel with that do just that. For camera gear, I trust my 1600 protector case. No other bag can fully protect my gear. Last but not least, my 7600 flashlight. Perfect for aircraft preflights, and the dark winter months in Alaska.
