My life is shaped by the urgent need to wander and observe, and my camera is my passport.

What you need to know about me

I am the biggest fan of coffee I know. I'll drink it any way - espresso, drip, press, latte, black, and yes, I've even had green coffee bean soda. Wouldn't recommend.

I have two dogs, Waffles and Ginger, and they're my BFFs (and yes, I can confirm that I'm definitely the annoying pet owner who makes homemade treats and buys dog clothes... whoops).

I have a degree in English literature. I've used it approximately zero times.

The Office: I will never stop watching reruns of this show, ever.

Puns are my favorite, and dad jokes. I can get out of hand with these if the mood strikes.

My favorite things to do in downtime: try cool new restaurants, hike and explore, connect/share ideas with cool people. All while drinking coffee... duh.

 

RIVER G. WEST

Hey there peeps. I'm River, a photographic storyteller hunting for moments and documenting things that otherwise might fade from memory. I'm obsessed with moody black and whites, with wind that whips hair and skirts into a beautiful mad frenzy, with sunlight glimmering on the water at the end of the day, with self-discovery and personal empowerment... and most of all with people who are not afraid to be themselves. Photography helps me see.

I live in Atlanta Georgia, where humidity and a southern drawl are never too far away. I love coffee, adventures, and exploring new places.

Will travel basically anywhere for a chance to photograph an amazing story.
