What makes us passionate about what we do and how do we keep that energy going? It's a question I've been asked ever since starting my photography career nearly 8 years ago. It would be easy to say that it's never been a problem. “The inspiration just flows through my veins man!” But for most of us, and especially me, that's not always true. It takes a bit of nurturing, turning the camera towards things that truly inspire you. Sometimes that means turning the camera inward or maybe just setting the camera down for a bit and finding a little adventure in the mountains while the clouds whip by or pausing for reflection in the serenity of an alpine lake. For me, these experiences nurture my creative passion and excitement for what we do and usually involves working on personal projects and spending time in nature with and without a camera.
