Congrats to our official photographer, @larry_chen Congrats to our official photographer, @larry_chen_foto, on becoming a Canon Explorer of Light! We sure are grateful to have his talent and expertise on the mountain. 🙌🙏 (Repost, @larry_chen_foto) Today @CanonUsa announced that I am officially a Canon Explorer of Light. It's such an honor to be included in this group of talented photographers.

Fifteen years ago, I picked up a Canon Rebel XT and started shooting cars and the culture surrounding it. I never would have imagined that I would be able to do this for a living. Canon took notice of my passion and I'm now able to work much closer with the brand that created the tools that helped me get where I am today.
