Texas is home to as much natural beauty as the state is wide. Everything from traditional landscapes to wildlife, macro subjects and moody environments. Through this presentation, I will be sharing some of my favorite locations while covering topics such as the best times to visit, suggested gear, and how to get the most from these locations while exploring your own vision. My hope is that by the end you will be inspired to get out and explore the vast state of Texas and all the nature it has to offer!
