Let's talk dreams for a second. Moving forward you're mainly going to see wedding, elopement, and engagement photos on my IG feed (granted, I'm taking a small break from that while I'm on vacation in Costa Rica). That's because I dream of becoming a wedding photographer one day and eventually molding that craft into destination wedding photography. This dream manifested from two of my greatest passions: traveling and photography. Doing them both for a living, especially alongside someone I love (you know who you are) would be nothing less than perfect in my mind and that isn't even beginning to delve into why I feel more rewarded shooting couples in love over other types of photography. About a month ago, I began work on my website as a starting base to showcase my work outside of IG. Ideally, this website would be the first place potential clients look to try and book my services. I'm not saying my website is going to become the next Flickr, but I want it to be bustling with traffic like a busy market on a Saturday morning for my photography to thrive. Why is this relevant right now? Well, tomorrow, the United States government will vote on something I'm sure you're all tired of having shoved down your throat since 2007: netneutrality (aka SOPA, CISPA, etc). The vast majority of my followers are fellow photographers and I know each and every one of you wants to share your beautiful art with as many people as possible. If this legislation passes then it would be a dagger straight through the heart of your dreams. The most prominent example being that this would allow ISPs (Comcast, AT&T, Time Warner, etc) to charge you a monthly fee to access some of your favorite websites, even Instagram! What can you do to help? I won't repeat what this website has to say, but you can find everything you need in the simplest of steps here:
No matter which side of the same coin your party lines fall, this negatively impacts YOU as a photographer. Don't let your dreams be hampered by someone else's greed. Please spread the word.

One of my favorite parts about our relationship is that we share the same passions and attitudes towards life. I love that I can share this space with @slackinhigh, above the quiet abyss, with no questions asked, and with full calm and understanding. Between all the highlining and adventuring we have done over the past three years, we have found ourselves constantly putting our lives into each other’s hands (i.e. trusting their rigging, trusting that they’re spotting or belaying you correctly, trusting that they care enough to be attentive, double check their work, and keep you safe, etc.) From that I believe we have developed a really special bond and a really strong trust in one another. When you have done things together that literally challenge your lives, it has a way of highlighting the important things, and every other “problem” you had before suddenly seem to be insignificant in comparison. Our adventures remind us to LIVE together. To be lighthearted and not waste our short time on this Earth squabbling about petty things and “problems” that we don’t really have.
Additionally, this photo represents the bond we have with the community in trusting the safety of this net that we all helped weave, rig, and create. @sketchyandylewis. Maybe that’s why the slack family as a whole is so special. We are all bonded in this way that not many people will ever understand. In a way that you only really get to understand when you are pushing your boundaries and having ultimate faith in your fellow human being. ❤️ 📸:@thehearnes
