In May 2014 I invited my brother and my mother for a road trip through Washington, Oregon and California. A week-long drive that took us from the Olympic Peninsula down to San Francisco in what was my first ever landscape assignment. Besides enjoying the company of my family, I focused my photography mainly on three habitats: the rainforest, the coast and the redwood forest. The skills and the equipment for this trip were completely different than what I am accustomed to, but that was what made it so special and unique. We drove over 1,300 miles and enjoyed the great outdoors of the west coast. We listened to great music, ate some great food, had some amazing beer and above all, we strengthen our connection by inserting ourselves in the heart of nature.
