The floating city of Venice will always be one of my favorite places on earth. With its labyrinth of bridges, alleys, and canals it’s easy to get lost in all its magnificence. Come check out my takeover with @estrelladamm for more! #mediterraneanvibes

The best adventures are the ones where you get little lost in the process. Also, paper maps. You guys remember those? 🗺

We’re already half way through July and I feel like summer just started. Time needs to seriously slow down. What’s everyone got planned for the rest of the summer? 🤘🏻🌴🌞

philngyn

Malibu sunsets are something else.

There isn’t one path or the right path. There’s only your path.

Cozy times at @idyllcove. Also happy belated birthday to the best adventure pup @mountainmalii, everyone go show her some love 🐶❤️

Always feels good to be back in this beautiful place.

Such an unforgettable experience seeing this extraterrestrial landscape from above. With all the peculiar rock formations and vast desert terrain, it felt at times like we were flying over a distant planet. Shoutout to the guys at @maverickhelicopters for making this happen. 🚁

philngyn

The journey is the adventure. #ad We logged 1900 miles in 10 days in our @Hyundaiusa #HyundaiTucson and so many more memories. Road tripping will forever be my preferred method of travel. With the right company, the right tunes, and the right vehicle, it’ll definitely be one to remember for years to come. 🤘🏻🛣

philngyn

Strive for progress, not perfection.

philngyn

No better place for a scenic drive than through the majestic Teton mountain range with @Hyundaiusa. #ad With views around every turn, it’s easy to sit back and just enjoy the views in our #HyundaiTucson.

Oh deer

Is it weird to have restroom goals? Because this is definitely restroom goals.

Summers like this.

philngyn

A wild start to two weeks worth of crazy weather and everlasting memories. #ad We started our road trip in the mountains of Montana while making our way back down to California in the new 2019 @hyundaiusa Tucson. With AWD and loaded with modern tech, it was able to handle any sort of terrain or weather thrown at it, making for one of the most comfortable road trips I’ve ever embarked on. #HyundaiTucson

These two photos were taken just a couple of moments apart but represent a completely different reality. It goes to show that lighting is everything in photography. I’m having a hard time picking my favorite, which one do you prefer: pastel skies or sunlit peaks?

philngyn

One of the coolest experiences on this trip has been spotting these magnificent creatures gracefully roaming around. This was captured with @sonyalpha’s new animal eye AF feature, which locks in focus on an animal’s eye with incredible accuracy. Shot on Sony a7iii with 70-200GM lens. #SonyAlphaAnimalPortrait #bealpha #alphacollective

California is wild.

What’s your favorite winding down pastime? As a full time freelancer, I find myself either working or thinking of work 24/7. More and more though I see the importance in prioritizing down time to prevent burning out and allowing more creativity to flow from a clearer mind.

philngyn

This is what summer’s all about. Fun hikes and catching views in the most incredible places.

philngyn

Missing those calm, crispy mornings in the Canadian Rockies 🇨🇦

Stay curious. There’s so much to see and explore in this world. 🌍 - #whpplanetearth

We got skunked out of our first day here as Mt. Fuji hid behind some pretty ominous clouds. But the next day was a different story as it stood tall and gleaming in the morning light. I almost forgot how captivated I was from seeing it in person the first time and it’s just as shocking the second time around. Pictures really cannot show just how massive this mountain really is. 🏔 - #whpplanetearth

Tokyo Night Lights // Same city, different scenes. As the temple crowds disperse, the city lights come on bringing with it a renewed energy within the city.

philngyn

Life and traditions in Kyoto.

A strange sense of calmness ensues as we walked amongst the sounds giant bamboo trees clanking against each other in an eerily quiet forest. 🎋

philngyn

Only in Japan is there an entire month of festivities and limited edition snacks all dedicated to a flower that lasts barely over a week at full bloom. Pretty amazing if you ask me. 🌸🇯🇵

philngyn

Japanese Snow Monkeys // A complete detour from our planned route but when we found out that snow was in the forecast, we had to give these little dudes a visit. Definitely one of my favorite experiences so far this trip.

philngyn

Old vs new

philngyn

Two of my favorite things about Japan: the people and the food. Everything else is just a bonus. 🍜 - Shot on @sonyalpha a7iii + 24mm F1.4 lens. #alphacollective

philngyn

I’ve always been super intrigued by other cultures and seeing how different yet similar we all really are. Japan is one place I keep finding myself coming back to because of how rich in culture it is here. Also, big shout out to this swaggy Japanese grandpa for walking into my frame at the right time.

philngyn

Making new friends in Japan. What should I name him? 🦌

philngyn

Shades of Tokyo // I’m constantly mind blown by how vibrant and colorful this city is with it’s unique mix of ancient traditions and modern comforts. So stoked to finally be chasing Sakura this time around! Stay tuned for more 🇯🇵

philngyn

Grateful to be located so close to this amazing place along with so many other gems in this state. Stoked to get out there this summer and explore more around me. What’s your favorite place in California?

philngyn

Scenic drives in New Zealand.

philngyn

The Golden State has been looking incredible the past few weeks. So grateful to witness all the historic events happening out here. Here’s to warmer days ahead 💐☀️

philngyn

So blown away by all the love on my Japan story series posted yesterday! I wanted to leave a couple of these photos for the feed. Beyond stoked to be back in this amazing country soon. Anyone have any food recs?! 🍣🍜

philngyn

Just a couple more days until Spring officially starts but I’m already appreciating the warmer weather here in SoCal. Time to bring some color back to the feed. 🤘🏻 - Shot on @sonyalpha a7iii + 24-70GM. #alphacollective

California has been hitting me with surprises one after the other. Tucked away in the San Jacinto mountains lies this beautiful small town. Idyllwild is perfect for that weekend escape and quickly becoming one of my favorite hidden gems in California. Big shoutout to @experienceidyllwild for accommodating us with this cozy and charming cabin. Couldn’t have asked for a better place to spend time with good company. @idyllcove

philngyn

Never forget to take a moment to soak it all in.

Going through some older photos from my time in Europe brought back some incredible memories. At times it felt like I was in a scene straight out of a fairytale. Swipe for the full experience.
