In this day and age of instant gratification and posting all the videos and photos on social media, the true nature of why we love these adventures can be lost. It can be lost to the stress of “getting the shot”. I am no stranger to social media, filming, posting and sharing adventures. I think it is something that is very fulfilling, to be able to share my experiences and adventures with others. But at the same point there is something to be said about getting back to the very core of what I love, no cameras, no shot list, no other motivation other then just getting out there by myself, doing my thing and loving every moment. It allows me to focus 100% on what I have going on in that moment and be totally present. No cameras= total freedom in every moment to just be. It makes me truly appreciate what I do and just reminds me how much I love what I do.
Don’t get me wrong. I am totally fortunate to be able to work with in the industry that fuels my soul, but at the same point just getting away from it all and getting back to what I do in its most pure form motivates me to reach higher, go stronger and experience more.
A balance of filming adventures and just going on adventures is what I always seek and that is the very thing that keeps me going!
