LOCATION: Orange, CA
Hey, I'm Ranz. A few years ago, I was living a different lifestyle. I was unhealthy, hiking from one bar to the next, hated my job, and was going through a rough patch. One day I decided to go for a drive and ended up in Big Sur. It was such an amazing experience that I ended up reconnecting with the outdoors and reignited my passion for photography and adventures. Since then, I’ve started backpacking, camping, road tripping, picked up a camera again, and started a new career as a pediatric occupational therapist as well as my own business doing freelance photography specializing in the outdoors. I guess you can say that the great outdoors saved me.
