What brought on the challenge to travel America in a trailer, where have you been so far and where are you planning to go to?

My girlfriend Mary and I spent a few years planning and saving our money so that we could afford to restore a trailer, quit our jobs and explore our giant backyard. We left home 4 months ago at the perfect time in our lives to try out a minimal lifestyle on the road, centered around playing outdoors and picture taking. To even begin a project like this you really have to want it more than you fear it. After that you find ways to make things happen.

We spent the Spring in the Southwest (Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah) exploring before heading south to San Diego to find some surf for a week. Then we drove the entire coast, mostly on Highway 1, all the way up to Port Angeles in Washington. After that we spent a week in Seattle and now we’re in Montana. We’ll be heading East with no specific agenda whenever we run out of things to do here.

Your landscape photography is fantastic, but you also shoot downhill skateboarding events. Tell us a little about the sport and why you enjoy photographing it in such scenic environments.

For the most part it is skaters riding gravity down mountainous roads. I’m endlessly inspired by the way riders use and respond to the road. Even the roads themselves are inspiring, they can be beautiful structures designed to over come the brutality of nature. Seeing riders blast down an epic, scenic road is an art form unto itself. From a photographic stand point what’s not to like? Action, leading lines and a beautiful backdrop.
