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

In my senior year of high school at Castro Valley High, I've realized that time was fleeting and wanted to capture every moment possible. As I continued doing photography, I eventually took it outdoors, and it made me appreciate more about the nature we're surrounded by.

What do you do outside of photography?

I'm currently taking a break from college and recently quit my part time job. At the moment I really want to use this free time to travel and really focus on photography. Currently planning road trips to go to over summer( Washington and Yosemite).

Which Lander product is your favorite?

My favorite lander product would probably be the charger cable. It's simple and sturdy. That's all I need in a charging cable and it feels durable enough to last a lot longer than the standard Apple cable.

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

Don't hold back on doing spontaneous trips to shoot somewhere. Don't just say it but do it.
