Hello! My name is Tommy, I'm 29 and live in Portland, Oregon. I grew up in Northern California in a town called Redding. For the last 12 years I've hopped around from Santa Barbara, Seattle to San Francisco. I'm a photographer, craft bartender and a incredibly successful singer when I'm in the shower. I've been taking photos for 15 years now. I picked up my first camera at 14 years old and immediately became deeply passionate about photographing people. I am taking on the PCT this year and will be creating a photo series of nudes, concept art and portraits of hikers I meet out on the trail. Some of my photographer heroes are Annie Leibovitz, Joel Peter-Witkin, Helmut Newton and Diane Arbus. My favorite artists are The Police, Stevie Wonder, Jeff Buckley and Whitney Houston. I hate lasagna and the sound of motorcycles. A long walk on the beach sounds awful because I don't like the ocean that much (OK, I'm afraid of the ocean). But I do love my Mama, Sundays and good dick joke; not in that order though. And sorry this was long, I forgot I was writing this for an outdoor website, not a Tinder profile. Happy hiking! ;)
I was originally going to write this piece as a look into Karen Wang's photographic memoirs from her adventure on The Pacific Crest Trail.
