Heck Yeah! | Travel and Stylized | Lake Jackson, Texas | Personal Post

I've just spent the most amazing week in Joshua Tree, CA! I absolutely loved seeing the L.A. area from the sky!

I traveled to California for the first annual Heck Yeah Photo Camp photography conference, which had an amazing lineup of some of the most talented (and dare I say hipster) photographers out there:  Ben Sasso, Jonas Peterson, Sam Hurd, Dylan + Sara, Benj Haisch, Parker Fitzgerald, Lara Jade, and Gabe McClintock!

Wowzers!! I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the presenters tell us their stories and how they climbed to the top of the totem pole.
 

I laughed, I cried, and my ass hurt like hell in the chairs that were provided...

I also met some other amazing photographers, including Texas-locals Jackie Willome and Christy Lea

I just HAD to visit the Joshua Tree National Park while I was there...

Check out this sunset scenery! This is only 5 minutes into the park. I had to go back the next day to fully explore and adventure.If you're ever that way, I definitely recommend checking it out in-person!

You wouldn't believe how freaking BEAUTIFUL a DESERT can be! I'm talking EPIC landscapes, here!
