Yosemite Falls & Taft Point - Building a Community

When my friend Nico invited me to go to Yosemite National Park with an insanely talented group of photographers and models, I was beyond excited. Many of the photographers that came are photographers that I really look up to and love their work, and with such a small group going, I felt very humbled. Despite traffic and almost zero service, we were able to find each other and get in some awesome shooting. We began in Yosemite Valley, climbed up quite a few rocks to get to the base of Yosemite Falls, and spent sunset up by Taft Point. I got some of my absolute favorite photos ever, and I hope you love them as much as I do!
