Aurora Portfolio

I regularly contribute photos to Aurora Photos: an outdoors, travel, and lifestyle stock photo agency. 

"Escaping Desolation"

I provided Aurora my photos from a 90-mile 7-day rafting trip with 2 friends down the Green River through Desolation and Gray Canyons in Utah in the fall of 2015. This trip ran smoothly, until the second to last day, when disaster struck and our boat was sunk in an unexpected way. This is the story of how we escaped desolation.

Outdoor Destination Publications

I previously worked as a contributing content writer, photographer, and geographer for outdoor destination review website Roots Rated in 2013. I provided 300+ outdoor destination reviews for the initial content launch of Los Angeles and San Diego, California and Austin, Texas. These reviews required writing, photography, and mapping and covered outdoors destinations for hiking, rock climbing, surfing, food and drink, gear shops and more.

Adventure Publications

I previously worked as a contributing writer, photographer, and geographer for outdoor adventure review website Outdoor Project. I spent two weeks exploring the Eastern Sierra Nevada in California, where I recorded data for 20 different outdoor adventures from hiking, camping, rock climbing, hot springs and more. This required writing, photography, GPS surveying, and mapping for each adventure.

"Brochures to Hashtags: Ice Climbing with San Juan Mountain Guides"

I wrote a story about my first day of ice climbing under the instruction of San Juan Mountain Guides, in Ouray, Colorado. This story was a joint marketing publication I created for SJMG and Outdoor Project.
