Tell us a fun fact about yourself!

If I could marry Chick-Fil-A, I would.

How did you get into photography and the outdoors? What makes you love it?

It all started because I loved to travel. I wanted to show my parents what my trips looked like, so I would snap a few photos every trip I took. Eventually I picked up a DSLR and have been evolving as a photographer ever since. Loving it every step of the way.

What do you do outside of photography?

I am currently a student at Oklahoma State University. (One more year!) When I am not shooting photos, I'm most definitely playing volleyball.

Which Lander product is your favorite?

By far, my favorite product is the Moab. Its so thin, but protects your phone so well. Too good.

What advice would you give to people who want to get into adventure photography?

The biggest thing I would say is to not focus on the camera you have or the lenses you want. I still shoot everyday on a Canon 60D, and its 7 years old! Its easy to see other people shooting on 5D's with 5k worth on lenses and think that is the way to be successful. I would encourage you to look forward and progress as a photographer instead of looking around you trying to be like someone else.
