My studio space is a phone. I take photos and edit them on my phone. I don’t post any photos from my DSLR on Instagram. Those are on my Format site. I happen to live in a beautiful part of the world and I love going out to the mountains to see what I can capture. I don’t go crazy with edits. I just try to capture the essence of the moment.

I started taking photos because it was a way for me and my girlfriend to hang out and do things outdoors. We go on photo walks and take pictures. The app Hipstamatic came out and it was the gateway drug to Instagram. All of a sudden you could post a photo and have an audience. It escalated quickly. Now, we go on photo walks every weekend and drummed up a bit of a following.
