Who: Isaiah Downing
Where: n. america
Formalities aside, I have been a photographer for more than half my life. I grew up the son of a hobbyist photographer and have had a camera since I was 12 years old. In the past 3 years I have narrowed and focused my attention on action sports and lifestyle photography. I am a self proclaimed 'late bloomer'. I went to college on and off for a year or two before dropping out and getting a real job. In the time off I made a good living and ended up meeting a girl who only dated college guys. After the first day with her I re-enrolled in college and chose my path. Things didn't work out between us, but I had my head on straight and steam rolled through 3 years of college in 2 years time. I can't remember her name but I wanted to thank her for jump starting my life! While in college I shot for the school newspaper and did event photography on the side, the two of which complimented my photo classes and rounded out my experience. After graduating with my art degree in photography I sold off the majority of my possessions and set out on the road.
As it sits, I have combined my love to travel with my passion for photography. I travel year round and really enjoy shooting with pro athletes. I am an action based photographer and love the outdoors. When I am not shooting you can find me rock climbing, tele skiing, mountain biking, backpacking, snowshoeing, and stand up paddling. My experiences and passion for photography and the outdoors, as well as mobility, give me a leading edge on other photographers. My rolling studio takes me to where I need to be and from there I have the ability to create! I have complete underwater capabilities as well as a pretty well stocked mobile studio setup. My work has been featured in domestic and foreign magazines as well as international advertising. I am currently available for editorial and commercial assignments worldwide and can travel anywhere within North America in 7-10 days!
