  • • •🏄🏾‍♂️✨⛰• Morning Paddles • If you zoom in you’ll be able to see @erubes1 working off the Poisson Cru from the night before. If you don’t know, Poisson cru is a Polynesian fish consisting of raw fish marinated in citrus juice and coconut milk. It was probably the highlight of every single location we shot at. My mouth is watering just thinking about it as I write this caption. If you ever make it out to French Polynesia, make sure to indulge in your fair share of Poisson Cru. You won’t regret it. I know @erubes1 doesn’t. What’s your favorite meal? Stay Adventurous Dear Friends!!

  • • •🌴🚶🏾‍♂️✨• The Visit • Sometimes I have to rub my eyes and pinch myself to realize that what’s in front of me is actually real. A couple of weeks ago, I spent the whole night roaming around the little motu island of Taha’a. I forgot my headlamp so I snagged a tiki torch from the resort front desk and used it to as a make shift flash light. I think my favorite time to shoot is in the middle of the night because my creativity has the time to slowly manifest itself and I’m not constantly scrambling around trying to photograph what’s left of the sunrise/sunset. What’s your favorite time to shoot ? Stay Adventurous Dear Friends!!

  • • •🌴🚶🏾‍♂️✨• Made of Dreams • This is one of my favorite places on planet earth. Over the last summer, I’d come here alone to clear my mind. I could go the whole day wandering beneath these massive trees listening to the water trickle beneath my feet and the birds chirp in the distance without encountering another soul. Safe to say this patch of redwood trees have carved out a special place in my heart. Where do you go to clear your mind ? Stay Adventurous Dear Friends!!

  • • •⛰🧚🏻‍♀️✨• Frozen in Time• This is what happens when you answer the call of curiosity. After seeing a couple of pictures of a nearby location on @aaronbhall‘s page I wandered what it would look like from above. So I gathered a couple of willing friends, zipped out to Utah and climbed up these petrified sand dunes. What we found was an alien landscape unlike anything I’ve seen before. Looking forward to spending more time out here. Thanks for joining me on the adventure @king_roberto @carriemeonmyway and @thesash Can you guess where this place is ? Stay Adventurous Dear Friends!!

  • • •🌳🧘🏽‍♂️✨• Shrouded by Mystery • This is @tiffpenguin standing underneath one of the many marvels we stumbled upon during our adventures in Nuku Hiva. We were searching for trees to hammock on and we stumbled across this thousand year old marvel who didn’t quite qualify because she was a couple of feet too wide. Nevertheless she looked beautiful as ever and we snagged a couple of shots. #sizzlerscomeinallshapesandsizes Stay Adventurous Dear Friends!!

  • • •⛰🏍🔥 • Skies Ablaze • This absolutely marvel of a sunset happened two days ago. We got to the sunset spot 2 hours early and cracked a couple of cold ones to pass the time; we had lost any motivation to shoot thanks to the heavy storm clouds that rolled in. As the evening progressed and the light began to dim, a tiny patch of sky opened up on the horizon and the clouds literally exploded before our eyes. We spent the next 30 minutes running around like headless chickens trying to do the sunset any justice. Always a pleasure when conditions go above and beyond your expectations and leave you with results like this. Check out my story to see what the unedited versions of this shot look like Stay Adventurous Dear Friends!!

  • • •⛰🌊🚤• Marine Marauder • This is called Onoiau Pass; the most dangerous pass in all of French Polynesian. This tiny straight alone has taken down many ships and boats. Yet people keep cruising through its deathly grips on a daily basis because it’s the only way to get into the atoll of Maupiti for the local fishermen. A subtle reminder that Mother nature can be equally as unforgiving and destructive as she can be soothing and welcoming. Treat her with respect.

  • • •🌴🏃🏾🌴•Fern Framed• From that one time I went running around the Black Spur with @connorjvaughan and @fabiooliveira. It’s crazy what you kind find if you go off the beaten path with nothing planned and an open mind. Looking froward to exploring this absolutely fantastic wonderland early next year.

  • • •⛰✨🚤• Cobalt Cove • If you zoom into the picture on the last bungalow, you can see @robstrok , @erubes1 and I sipping on coconut water 💧🥥 getting some sun. It’s been an absolutely relaxing yet exhilarating time here in Bora Bora. Big thanks to @conradboraboranui for dealing with our adventurous madness and keeping the coconut water flowing.

  • • •🏃🏾🌴⛰• Beach Runs• I think I’ve found my new favorite beach in the world. It’s tucked away on a little island called Nuku Hiva deep in French Polynesia. Can’t wait to come back and watch the sunset here. I decided against this spot and photographed the sun going down just behind those mountains. Quite a difficult decision to make but a good predicament to find yourself when you’re surrounded with such awe-inspiring vistas. What’s your favorite place to watch the sun go down.?
