        • Flying High

          Flying High is a compilation of a lot of my favorite shots from this past year, and my first fully timelapse reel. I've become completely fascinated with timelapse photography this past year, and I've been able to get out quite a bit. There's such an excitement in going out and really thinking about how you want to set up your shot, and putting so much time and creativity into the setup; & then not really knowing if you got it until you go home the next morning. It almost kinda reminds me of shooting film, when I couldn't wait to get those slides back. I wrote and recorded "Flying High" the song recently, and had been excited from the beginning to put some imagery to it. I really love how the timelapse works with the music. I have to give a huge thanks to Tom Lowe for his incredible inspiration, and his unparalleled generosity. I hadn't ever really dabbled in timelapse before meeting Tom, and his work was so inspiring, and he was so generous with his knowledge, that I become totally obsessed :) I also want to give a huge thanks to Eric Kessler for really believing in me and helping me take my timelapse to the next level. His support has really allowed me to expand my own artistic vision, and he's one of the nicest most genuine guys I've ever met.

                      A few photos and video clips from a recent hike. The Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest is located in the White Mountains of California, and is home to the oldest known living organism on earth, the Great Basin Bristlecone Pine (Pinus longaeva). The oldest tree, nicknamed "Methuselah", is more than 4,750 years old, and is not marked to ensure added protection from vandals. The grove lies in the Inyo National Forest, between 10,000 -11,000 feet above sea level. The bristlecones grow in alpine outcroppings of dolomite - a magnesia-rich sedimentary rock that resembles limestone. And interestingly, the bristlecones that reside in moister soil with greater nutrients grow fat and tall but have a life expectancy of only 1,000 years or so. The oldest bristlecones live in the least nutritious soils in the most exposed, bleak locations, and are deceptively small. It seems soil with a high dolomite content produces a denser, resinous wood that is resistant to bacteria, fungus and insects. Trunks can remain standing for more than 1,000 years after the tree has died.
