I took a drive up Big Tujunga Road through the western side of the Angeles National Forest recently. A rare summer storm was brewing. The wind was gusting, thunder grumbled on the horizon. The scent of yerba santa and wild rosemary hung heavily in the air.
Really excited to have been interviewed in the July issue of Shutterbug. You can read it here: https://www.shutterbug.com/content/how-make-living-wildlife-photographer-tips-4-top-pros
I had the awesome experience of photographing this years Valencia Trail Run hosted by the great people at New Global Adventures (http://newglobaladventures.com/). I was struck by the diversity of the runners, their drive and determination to prove to themselves they could do it, and their kindness to their fellow runners. It was just a brilliant event. Can’t wait to do more with them in the future.
What made this uniquely rewarding for me was using my experience as a landscape photographer to give overall context to the race for the participants. The one thing better than running is running in epic country.
