As a travel photographer, one of the biggest difficulties as far as gear goes, is finding the perfect pack that can hold all of my gear. You might think the easy solution is picking a large enough pack, but when you’re a backpacker, or are on an expedition in the wilderness, weight and size, and security matter a great deal, because each and every piece of gear is almost always a quick mistake away from being destroyed. Modern camera gear has grown by leaps and bounds technologically, and the quality of imagery that comes out of the smallest DSLR or mirror-less camera is astounding, but where the modern designs have fallen short is their longevity.

New Mexico is an amazing state in the USA, located alongside Arizona, Colorado, Oklahoma, Texas, and Utah – it also shares part of its borders with Mexico. It's both the desert, and the oasis, presenting visitors of its lands the chance to stay or to go, as many artists and creatives have been famed for doing, while offering ample adventure opportunities for those individuals seeking an escape from the city, or for a much deeper connection. Whatever you seek, New Mexico provides. I traveled through New Mexico in April of 2014, along my USA road trip, and I can say without a doubt, that it's one of my favorite places in the world – it's loaded with unique towns, amazing history, gorgeous natural physique, and has everything to satisfy an artist, for all that one could ever need, be it inspiration or enlightenment is provided here. You will now see a collection of images from my travels through New Mexico – I hope they inspire and awe... Enjoy. =)
