Fire. It's practically in my blood. They're dangerous and beautiful. They create their own light and can turn on you in a split second. As a freelance photojournalist, I always enter a fire scene prepared. I wear the same fire gear firefighters wear and have a huge amount of respect for what they do. These massive out-of-control wildfires used to be rare, but they've been getting bigger and happening more frequently. Fires are one of my favorite things to shoot, so I hope my passion for telling these visual stories is apparent through this set of images taken in the fire zone. Enjoy!
