Do you know that camping can enable you to have a long and healthier life?

As indicated by various research, there are a huge number of benefits that outdoors conveys to human well-being and life.
There are a lot of things I'm not good at and a lot of shortcomings I have; laziness is not one of them. I don't ever remember a time in my life that anyone has accused me of not giving my current task all my energy and focus. Then I became my own boss and realized how hard it is to be self-disciplined when the only person you're working for is you.
This last week I was able to connect with surfer Matt Strand through some mutual friends. Matt is sponsored by Fear to Faith Clothing and so we wanted to get some neat environmental portrait shots of him. The alarm at 4:30am came too soon, but we got up and headed down to Laguna/Newport area and found this rocky section which is just want I was envisioning.
This last week I received an email from a high schooler who had some questions for me about how to do photography for a living and grow in the craft. Although it took me about a week to respond, I did finally get back to him and below you'll find some of his questions and the answers I gave him. These are answers I'd give to anyone, regardless of age.
Buying a camera is a big investment and no small decision. There are many elements and specs to consider and research. One factor of picking a camera is deciding whether to get a full frame (more appropriately called a 35mm frame size) or a crop sensor camera and you may easily overlook it if you're not aware it's an option.
First of all, let me say that this is a great bag! I've had it for over a year and used all across the US and in all conditions and temperatures on all sorts of adventures, so I feel that I can speak to it well.
The other week I did a concept shoot where I wanted to highlight the Mountain Hardwear Lamina Torch Z sleeping bag. I wanted my subject standing in the bag in the middle of cold and harsh conditions to show that he was remaining warm. In the end I got the shot I wanted, but not by going to cold conditions.
4 days... 3 days... 2 days... 1 day away! The weekend was drawing nearer as we prepared ourselves for hiking San Gorgonio, the tallest peak in Southern California. For our experience level, it wasn't going to be anything new or crazy, but things were different this time: the weather. One of the largest weather systems of the past few years was coming in and was going to hit us broadside while we were up on the peak.
If you've done research into underwater housing (and their cost), you'll know how expensive they can be. In some instances, they cost more than the camera. Certainly, when you pay the premium price you're also purchasing assurance, functionality, size, etc. However, rebel that I am, I didn't want to pay the premium, so I built my own.
Today I’m going to give a written review of my REI Quarter Dome 1 tent and pair it with the review I made for my YouTube channel. The video obviously has visuals so you know what I’m talking about and examples of such, but some people like good-ol’ fashion words… like, in sentences and such…
Not by choice, but I can now say I have experienced this. I've been on this road trip across the United States and somewhere in Kansas, I pulled off for the night to sleep as per usual (cause most humans need sleep). As was my routine I moved around my gear to clear my bed space, laid out my sleeping bag, cracked the window slightly next to me and put the bug netting over it, took off my shoes and crawled inside my home on four wheels. I'd say I got super cozy and snuggled into my bag, but in truth it was hot and humid that night. So I laid on top of my bag and stripped of all reasonable clothes. After a minute or two of lying there in slight misery, I heard the noise that all people of all nations dread; the faint buzz of that little blood-sucking nemesis.
When I was younger I always thought the perfect job would be one where I'd get to travel and be paid for it. Well, I've had that opportunity recently and I never would have expected it at my current job. It's allowed me to do my outdoor and adventure photography along the way.
