I picked up an old film camera (Canon AE-1) about 6 weeks and begin shooting film. It's been a learning experience. From shooting digital to shooting film is so different. It's really made me think about ever single shot before shooting. Some photos came out and a lot didn't. I have a lot to learn but real excited about it. All of the photos are untouched right from the film.
Quick trip to St. George for the weekend. Always have to pit stop in Zion.
We took off late Friday night and headed up to the Uintas. It was a short trip but a good time none the less.
We ended up finding a spot to camp at around 11, we set up camp and hit the hay.
Of course the next morning we got up and began the fishing. The small streams up there are one of my favorites for fishing, not to mention, the fish are so rad.
Here is a quick edit from the overnighter.
There will be a lot of camping this summer. This is the first of many weekend adventures to go and catch fish.
I took off Saturday afternoon to chase fish up in the Uintas. It's amazing to me the places you can catch fish. It may have been the funnest time yet i've had while fly fishing. I was lucky enough to catch 4 different types of fish while up there. It will be a place I go a lot during the summer months, exploring and chasing some rad fish.
Spent some time in Zions National Park in Utah this weekend.
I'm not a photographer, but I do enjoy taking pictures. Friday after work I took off into the mountains. I've always enjoyed seeing open exposure shots of the stars.
I captured a few photos that I really liked. I still have a lot to learn. It was still a good time to step away from the lights of the world and be surrounded by the stars.
I'm new to fly fishing. The past 5 months or so have been a ton of fun learning, but yesterday was something else. It was the first time i've thrown a streamer. It had rained all day, I had still decided to head out to the Provo river to fish for a few hours.
This was the fly of choice, Sculpzilla.
I ended up landing four fish, with having a lot of follows and hits.
All in all, let's say i'll be throwing streamers a lot more from here on out.
I'm not much of a writer, so bare with me. The reason of my blog is to share my adventures. I wanted to have somewhere I can look back on and remember the times i've had. I'm currently working for a company called Contour. We currently have two different cameras that we sell. It's great to part of this company. We've been pushing the slogan "Adventure Everyday". I had the opportunity to drive 10 hours to Mammoth Mountain to watch our athlete Cam Zink do a world record backflip.
Long drive, well worth it. I've never had the opportunity to work with a company like X-Games. It was quite the experience. Definitely something I enjoyed. The high pressure of everything made the hour long show for a 20 second jump worth it.
It was well worth the 20 hours in the car in the span of 3 days.
