Secondly, I follow you on most all social platforms, ie: FB, Twitter, IG, Tumblr obviously - and I love your landscape photos of the PNW. I recently read an article on Esquire about the US Forest Service wanting to charge permits for photographers who want to shoot in their forests and wanted to know your thoughts on it. Thank you for your time!
Thank you! I think this law is more so aimed at commercial photography (e.g. a crew from REI doing a documentary or something). They’re the ones who bring in these huge crews and if it’s not a state or national park, there likely isn’t a permit needed. So I think this law means well, I think it’s just poorly written. I’m not too worried about it because I can’t imagine it actually being enforced on individuals whom are shooting with even just an iphone when you’re out in the middle of nowhere and no one is around.

Thank you so much! That’s so kind of you to say! Feel free to let me know if you’re ever in Seattle.

Sometimes but not all the time, it depends on how bad the lens distortion is. Usually I will for landscapes.
Anonymous said: If you could only use one lens, what would it be?
35L or 135L, I love ‘em both for different reasons.

I just do photography as a hobby, but I have been wanting to try some portrait work it is just a bit intimidating to me. Do you have any advice on getting started? Once again I'm a huge fan, and the instant shots are so cool too.
Thanks! I started when I was 18 (now 25). Go out and photograph your friends, have fun with it & shoot a lot. Don’t be afraid to network and meet new people.
