Hello everyone. I'm Kyle, a.k.a The Straw Hat Hiker!

Heading out into nature to capture it's incredible beauty and share with others is my goal for this page. Currently, photography and adventuring are hobbies I'd love to be able to turn into a career! While I do have an active Instagram (, this page will be a much more personal experience into the adventures I go on and photos I capture!

My passion for adventuring began as a Cub Scout, where I continued down the path and earned the rank of Eagle Scout. This foundation and appreciation for the outdoors allowed my interest to grow and I later combined it with my interest in photography. I started taking photography seriously in 2012 with my first "real" camera, a Sony NEX-5N and have been combining the great outdoors and photography ever since!

My photography subjects are the landscapes I encounter on my outdoor adventures. I also have a soft spot for Astrophotography. It's one of the few times where I can truly escape from the world and be in awe of the fantastic universe we live in. My adventures have taken me all over the United States and will soon take me abroad!

I'm excited to share my adventures with all of my current and future Patrons and hope to build a community around adventuring into the outdoors and capturing its beauty!
