Photographer, writer, conservationist, National Geographic explorer, and many other titles, Becca Skinner joins the podcast to talk about how she went from aspirations of a life in climbing, to chasing adventures behind the lens, to settling down in a sustainable lifestyle in the mountains of Montana. Growing up in Colorado to a family of climbers, Becca was no stranger to living an outdoor lifestyle and adventures into the mountains, but it was when a tragic accident with her uncle happened and she decided to move to Wyoming to help out her aunt, that her life would really begin to revolve around climbing and the pursuit of adventure. It would be this life of adventure that would soon lead her to photography and working with companies like the North Face. After getting accepted for a grant to go document post Katrina New Orleans while still in college, Becca began to settle into a groove of writing and taking pictures and before long was honored to receive a National Geographic young explores grant. During our conversation we talk about what it's like to be a young creative working with an organization like National Geographic, living a rural sustainable lifestyle and our mutual love for gardening barefoot, the transition from adventure photographer to visually showcasing a more accessible journey, how she became an ambassador for Orvis, and our thoughts on putting too much of your identity into one passion.
