From the vast extraterrestrial landscapes of the Badlands to wild bison literally licking your car while trying to drive through Custer State Park , @southdakota had it all. Being able to capture it with some of the most talented people in the world made it an experience I will never forget. This was just the beginning of our campaign with @visittheusa and I couldn’t be more excited to explore more of this beautiful country this year #unitedstories@beautifuldestinations 📷 @cory.s.martin
Just got back from an incredible New Years trip with @beautifuldestinations and @visit.dubai 🇦🇪 I dreamt of visiting places like this last year during this time and for it to become reality really symbolized how far I’ve come in 2018. Couldn’t be more optimistic for 2019 and where it’ll take me! #visitdubai
Just got back from an adventure through Alaska with the @beautifuldestinations team. One of our goals was to capture the amazing northern lights in only a few days. After sitting in negative temperatures for hours, the sky finally came to life and we were able to capture this once in a lifetime show. Although Alaska isn’t known as a winter destination, it’s absolutely worth it for this unique experience #unitedstories
It’s been a privilege to get a glimpse of Hawaii through the eyes of @cliff_kapono; over the last couple days the @beautifuldestinations team has been following him and capturing his story which has been eye opening to say the least. Many tourists only see beautiful beaches but don’t see areas where trash and microplastics have replaced the sand. Seeing this first hand changed my thinking and I’m grateful that I can share my experiences with people that can’t witness it themselves #UnitedStories
I’ve spent the last couple days in New Mexico with @beautifuldestinations capturing some incredible stories of people throughout the state. Yesterday morning we made a short detour to one of the most unique places I’ve ever visited. Arriving in the middle of the night, all we could see was the dark silhouette of Shiprock but as the sun started to rise this is what greeted us 🌄⛰ #beautifuldestinations#BDteam#UnitedStories
I remember seeing this shot of Grand Prismatic Spring back in 8th grade when I visited Yellowstone on a family trip and it’s been in my head ever since. Finally captured it and couldn’t have asked for a more amazing flight from @flyjacksonhole#beautifuldestinations#UnitedStories
Had an amazing Labor Day weekend exploring The City and getting prepared for my next adventure. Today @loganstrongarms and I embark on a journey with @beautifuldestinations to two amazing places in the US. Can’t wait to share what we’ll be up to. Can anyone guess where we are going 🤔 Hint: 🌃🌄 #BDteam
BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!! As some of you know, for the last two years I’ve been working as a structural engineer in Baltimore on some of the states largest bridges and tunnels. It’s been an insane two years trying to pursue my passion while working a full time job at the same time but I’m happy to say all the hard work paid off and I’m incredibly excited to announce that I have just joined the @beautifuldestinations team! • This job is something that I day dreamed about every single day since I picked up a camera and I am beyond thankful for the opportunity that I’ve been given. Special thanks to @tomjauncey for giving me the chance to prove myself out in AZ this spring and thanks to every single person that supported my work. • Although I’m excited for this new chapter in my life I will definitely miss the people I worked with over the last two years. Their influence on helping me become who I am was real and will not be forgotten. • Can’t wait to show you guys what we have planned this fall 🎥
Taking a break after a long day of hiking through the desert⛺️🌅 - A couple weeks ago @tomjauncey@loganstrongarms and I headed into the middle of Arizona to explore what the Southwest has to offer. We rented a Jeep with a tent on top which was perfect when we needed to take a quick rest before going to the next location. Managed to capture this during our last evening out there.
This is a shot of “Man on the horse” in Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park. I didn’t really know much about the park before going but to say it surpassed my expectations is an understatement. The vast plains contrasted by large plateaus made this one of the most unique landscapes I’ve ever visited. Exploring the park by car can be limited but on a horse the possibilities are endless
Just got back from the most epic road trip through Arizona with @loganstrongarms and @tomjauncey. We only had 72 hours but managed to see so many unique places and meet amazing locals that told us about the history of the area. This trip was something else and I’m already wanting to go back. Special thanks to @beautifuldestinations for the incredible opportunity and allowing us to experience such an amazing part of the US.
My road trip through California last month was one of the craziest I’ve ever been on. From waking up for sunrise every morning in San Fran to staying up till 5 am watching the stars in Yosemite, we saw as much as we possibly could. The footage we got was amazing and this video is some of my best work. To see the full thing hit the link in bio! @loganstrongarms@chasedevens@samuelli
