I am an avid backpacker and lover of the great outdoors. Photography has always been a hobby of mine, driving me to do some crazy things just to get that perfect shot. However, sometimes after a rough night sleeping on the ground of a bumpy tent, waking up early to catch those magical morning rays is more difficult than it should be.
When I dove into the world of hammocking, I finally found a way to get a good night’s sleep in the outdoors. Not only did I have more energy to pursue photography, I found that the freedom to suspend from almost anywhere (even indoors!) with my lightweight and compact camping hammock naturally produced some spectacular locales that I could have only dreamed of camping at with a traditional tent. I loved waking up to sweeping vistas or falling asleep to the sound of a river running under me, often with my camera at the ready to take advantage of these new, beautiful scenes that had become my private campground.
