    Guide: Washington, Alaska, International

    Dylan was born and raised on a small farm in Montana. His love for the outdoors has led him to climb throughout the western US, sea kayak in Norway, ski patrol in WA state, row boats down the Grand Canyon, run sled dogs in Sweden, and travel extensively throughout Chile and Argentina. As a 3rd generation photographer, he carries the extra camera weight on most trips and you can find his photos spread across many mediums. When not guiding, he works as a field engineer for seismic and earth science research throughout the western US and Alaska.
