Morning in Monterey

Driven by his favorite quote “Follow your heart and nothing else” by the great poet Lynyrd Skynyrd and fueled by his feminine Starbucks order, a mocha Frappucino, Reed Starkey often finds himself in some of the most beautiful places on earth. At age 20 his inner millennial struck, urging him to share his experiences with whoever finds him interesting enough to care, through the lens of his first film camera. He has since upgraded/modernized and now explores the world with a Mirrorless Sony DSLR. He strives to remind the viewer that they are small in comparison to the nature that surrounds the and really encourages viewers to listen their subconscious need to explore. With Big Sur, Yosemite and Tahoe right in his backyard he has started to hone his craft but is constantly looking for new opportunities to shoot / learn. His photography brand ‘Stark in the Wild’ is more than just a spin off of his last name. It is also a glimpse into his free (naked) spirit…also as a warning that he skinny dips any chance he gets.

He is a firm believer that there is nothing better than sitting by a fire with a cold beer surrounded by good company. He is always looking for new places, adventures, experiences and like minded people. If you are going somewhere interesting and need a photographer to tag along and capture the experience feel free to let him know! (starkinthewild@gmail.com) He accepts beer as payment. Currently based in sunny California!
