Chasing Landscapes

An American Nomad

It was definitely unicorn timing that Mai and I gave up our house and  bought our Sprinter camper van late in 2019,  just prior to the pandemic!  After two months of ownership it hit, and while the country was pretty much in lockdown, we stayed safe and socially distant while freely roaming the American West. Shunning traditional campgrounds, we found ourselves  boondockiong out of touch with people and deeper in touch with nature.


Our new lifestyle, the #vanlife, almost by definition, turns out to be a new awakening for the landscape photographer in me. The ability to park on location is huge! It's a whole new way of working and almost everything I used to do making my art, had to evolve, due to the extremely limited space for a couple living in a Sprinter van.

Landscape Photography on the Road

Minimalism became our mantra. No longer did I have the luxury of editing my photos on a 27" iMac. Instead, I developed a workflow centered around my iPad Pro. This aspect of van life I think was the hardest thing for me to adjust to because photo processing, which is half the enjoyment of landscape photography for me, had to be completely reinvented. 

Want to see what we're finding in our travels My newest work is a gallery updated with every new landscape photo I process while on the road living the van life!
