Taylor Gray may be young, but he's serious about photography. After taking a borrowed DSLR on a backpacking trip, Gray was hooked on photography and found a new love for adventure and travel. He's continued his learning by connecting with other photographers close to his home in the Bay Area, and he's made the most of online tools to better understand everything from his camera to post-processing.

Now, he calls photography more than a hobby - he's found a new sense of purpose, and finds that he looks at the world around him in new ways. With many years ahead of him, he's made quite an impressive body of work so far. Take a look at some of his images here and read more about him on Resource Travel.
