What will you do to push yourself this year?
This video shows my first attempt at standing up and trying to stay calm and relaxed enough to take even a few steps.
I had never been out on a line anywhere near this length or looseness. 
Fall after fall, I didn't get very far, but In the end, it’s the struggles that make me stronger and the continued pursuit of growth that leads to success. This year my goal is to continue to face the big challenges (mental and physical) and stand up to take steps forward, even after I fall.

1st photo and words of encouragement while I was on the line by @handsomerobinson.

Huge thanks to @balancecommunity, @hippytree & @forsakeco for continually supporting myself and the sport of highlining.

@handsomerobinson Proud of you for getting out on such a humbling line! Love ya brother 🤘

With everything going on with the government shutdown, it’s been a huge reminder of how special these places are and how important it is to continually protect them. 
This shot is from a recent solo trip through the park as the last light hit El Capitan. I hope the Valley will continually be a place for us to slow down and appreciate how grand and magnificent earth really is. 
Huge thanks to @smartwool for making this special trip to Yosemite possible.

@brentdangerrose Hey @travisburkephotography, stunning shot as always, my friend. Aside from the beauty, have you been shooting what's happening there right now? The piles of trash? Instances of vanalism? It's so important that people see what's really happening there and you're in such a unique position of being on the ground and also having a lot of people paying attention to your work. I know you didn't ask for the job, but with great power comes great responsibility, as they say. I'd love to see you using your big, beautiful voice to help speak up for these places when they need it most. That said, it's your feed and your life, and I don't mean to tell you what to do with either. Always rooting for you and always love your work. 🙏😊

Have you ever wondered what a colorful sunset looks like from beneath the surface?
I can't believe what I've been missing all of these years!

Spent the last few days surfing, chasing rainbows, hiking to remote waterfalls and camping on the beach in Kauai.
My friends at @kauaioverlander have put together the perfect 4x4 vehicles to rent and explore this island paradise in such a unique way. I’d been wanting to take one of their trucks out for a few years so I was stoked to finally make it happen! 
Kauai, Hawaii.
I hope you all had a happy holiday and are looking forward to what’s ahead in the new year!

There is something special about standing among waterfalls, towering granite cliffs, deep valleys, and the ancient sequoia trees. Yosemite was the first place I took a camera and ultimately the reason I fell in love with photography. 
Huge thanks to @smartwool for making this trip out to Yosemite possible. It was great to explore some of my favorite areas of the park with @whitneyljames a few weeks back before the first snow storm! 
It’s also always extremely humbling to get out on a highline a couple thousand feet above the valley floor in the birthplace of slacklining itself! #gofarfeelgood

@handsomerobinson Killin it my homie!

I’m 33ft (10m) below the surface, backed into a tight corner with a wall of spiny sea urchins inches from my body, my mind bouncing between fear, camera settings, and the elegance of @jillyfish831 - all while trying to ignore my body’s signs that my one breath of air is running out.

I’ve always been attracted to things that push me mentally and physically. When I was a child, water would pour into my ears as a result of an ear surgery. It took me years to overcome my fear of water, even trying to touch the bottom of the pool didn’t seem possible. 
Freediving became a goal of mine over the last few years and after a ton of research, training, and help from friends, I am stoked to be able to explore parts of the world that very few people get to see and share some of those experiences with all of you! 
QUESTION- Should I post more black and white images? I love shooting in B&W but always hesitate to share them here.
Thank you again for all of your continued support!

I woke up at 4:30am yesterday to catch the first snowfall in Yosemite Valley.
It was 10°F (-12°C) but absolutely beautiful to witness El Capitan and the Merced River under the light of the small crescent moon. 
A lot of you were asking for my camera setting on my Stories today, so here they are- 
Shutter Speed- 25 seconds. 
Aperture- f/4.
ISO- 6400.

Let me know if you have any questions!

@handsomerobinson Gorgeous brother! ❤️

Drove up to Yosemite last night to catch the first snowfall with my good friend Quin- @everchanginghorizon. 
I love how he always has a different approach to places, like taking his paddle board out in below freezing conditions (he was out there cruising around for almost an hour). Check out his feed for the video and all kinds of other epic content!

@brinkleydavies Hahahahahahahaha yes

I love the fact that there are so many different ways to see and experience the landscapes around us! 
This weekend I was stoked to have the opportunity to try something new and link up with @polarisadventures to rip around the desert and access places outside of Zion National Park that I had never been to before. 
Definitely something to add to the bucket list as an epic way to cover lots of ground and reach even more beautiful and remote locations!
