Looking back on a inspiring week in Washington DC for @ilcp_photographers#wildspeak . Seeing old friends and new while being continually challenged and inspired by those who took the time to come together. @summitworkshops is thrilled and honored to be a part of something that is not only special but critical to our natural world.
It has been a year like no other as it pertains to travel. All I can say is thank god for FaceTime! Getting to see the family is amazing, whether Marin is interested or over it!!! ❤️ my ladies 😍 #thankgoodnessforfacetime
Thrilled to be back at #wildspeak this year. The passion residing in this room for two days fills my heart with hope for what can still be done to protect our lands. So proud of @dshowalter_photo for his continued efforts, passion, and drive. He is a dear friend to @summitworkshops and a shinning light in conservation. If you ever get the chance to see him present whether it’s at one our workshops or somewhere, you really should.
@summitworkshops inaugural trip to the West Coast was an experience like no other. Sunrise to sunset, and repeat. Blessed to be surrounded by passionate people from all ends of the earth. Thanks to everyone that made the workshop a resounding success! 🙏🏻🤙🏻🙏🏻
A morning run to wrap up a special birthday weekend celebration for @williamalbertallard in Virginia. A beautiful part of the country I had yet to explore. The pop of fall colors were a pleasant surprise. Thanks again to my other family the Allard’s for all of the love and such a great time. Until next time!!!🙏🏻😊
A week ago I had no plans of being in Charlottesville, or anywhere close to it. But, when you get a call from @anaallard that a celebration of Bill’s 80 years is happening, you get to Charlottesville. Couldn't be happier to be celebrating this amazing photographer and an even better human being. Happy Birthday to my friend who has become more like a father than just a friend. Thank you for always pushing limits, asking tough questions and finding so much beauty, always. Here's to another 80 years, Pop.
Thank you for welcoming me into your home and sharing your beautiful family with me. You are truly special people. 😊🙏🏻
Wishing the happiest of birthdays to one of the most dynamic people I have ever met. @melissagroo your passion and energy pushes and motivates us all. Each day your work highlights the reality of what we stand to lose if conservation efforts were not in place (and ever growing). Thank you for teaching us all how to tell such important stories through the camera (all with the help of your crazy steady arms!). Happy birthday from your enormous @summitworkshops family. And with that, I’ll just leave another #awkwardprompose with two of my very favorites.
Late to this post but had a pretty awesome 36 hours spent in Nebraska over the weekend w/ @jschwaberow . Great food, crossfit, football and a day spent hanging out with two Nebraska legends: Heisman Winner @mike_rozier & @mforsbergphoto // Big thanks to @lynnie303 for bringing us out!!!
To the guy behind the camera and longtime friend of the photography community, happy birthday @npsboss! Thanks for being so committed to education and professional development of so many. And, for being such a great partner to @summitworkshops in everything that we do! May this year be one of the best yet! Cheers, to many more.....
Everyday we should acknowledge the work that @mforsbergphoto is doing for conservation and photography. But today seems particularly important as it is his birthday! Happy Birthday to my friend, roommate and The Office buddy. Thank you for capturing critical elements of this world's puzzle through your camera lens. Your work is so important and impactful. (@melissagroo - t-minus 15 days until your big day....) @summitworkshops
