About Me

" Humility is the mother of giants. One sees great things from the valley; only small things from the peaks."

— Gilbert Chesterton

The Who:

I'm Rachel!

I am a photographer, videographer, and website designer, with an affinity for the desert and a passion for expeditions. 

Having the grand canyon as my first glimpse of the vast southwest created an undeniable ache to be within the red rocks and pale sands. I became a canyoneering guide outside Zion National Park, with my adage 'work hard, play harder.' My fast paced lifestyle became pleasantly intertwined with photography, first as a means to slow down and smell the desert roses, and then eventually to tell stories. Using photos and video to tell these important stories has brought me all over the map from Patagonia to Tibet, with my heart remaining in little nooks surrounded by the sandstone I continue to call home.

I am an avid climber, canyoneer, runner, biker, painter, and have been fortunate enough to combine all of the above in different permutations to capture moments of adventure, joy, and creativity.
