About Alex

theprofessionalamateur.net

 

My name is Alex Fazekas-Boone. I live in a small city just south of Seattle, Washington called Tacoma with my beautiful woman Laura. Together we travel, photograph and share about all of the rad things we have the pleasure of experiencing in life. I am a Pacific Northwest native, and was born and raised here in Washington State. I come from a huge family, my mother was one of eight kids. I have three brothers, one sister, two nephews, three nieces and too many cousins to count. My family has always encouraged me to follow whatever I was passionate about from art to skateboarding to music and photography.

 

I have always made art in some fashion my whole life, but my main focus these days is photography. It’s something that just happened organically. I didn’t really set out to do it. I wasn’t like “Hey, I’m going to be a photographer now guys.” It just came together on its own and I think that’s what’s so special about it.

 

My other big passion is travel. It’s all I think about really. To me it is like a drug. There’s a reason it’s called a trip you know! It hooked me the first time I went on that road trip and saw the enormous basin of Crater Lake and the bison causing traffic jams in Yellowstone National Park. The thing I really like about travelling is that it takes me out of my comfort zone and forces me into new and strange experiences. I meet weird and interesting people I wouldn’t otherwise, and encounter scenes I couldn’t see back home in Pacific Northwest. Traveling ensures that my camera and I are constantly standing in front of fresh and inspiring people, places and things.

About Laura

www.laurajeanandersonyoga.com

 

I am a world traveling Yoga Instructor from the NW corner of the USA. I was raised in Tacoma, Washington by a loving family full of hardworking teachers (Mom + Dad + 2 Sisters). While I tried my best to be a rebel and avoid the teaching path, becoming a yogi revealed to me that I genuinely love helping people discover yoga and grow in their practice. Teaching is truly in my blood! Yoga has given me an entirely new life. It has changed and shaped me for the better. From my food choices to my finances to my friendships, yoga has taught me how show up in the world the way I always wanted to. It has connected me with so many incredible people and places. I can’t wait to see where else it takes me!

Iceland Hiking Trip Chris Nancarrow Customer Submission

Iceland Hiking Trip

“I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful product. I purchased 2 Chocorua Midweight shirts for a weeklong hiking trip across Iceland’s Laugavegur and Fimmvörðuháls trails. The shirts kept me completely comfortable through the constantly changing temperatures and intense wind/rain storms. I even wear them casually when I work and go out for the evening.

 

Your Merino Wool Ridge Cuff Beanie also accompanied me on the hike and worked wonderfully. Iceland’s temperature in mid-September ranged between 25F and 55F and the beanie kept me warm while sleeping through the freezing nights.”

Wool Saved My Life

It was a morning like any other.

 

Just your typical Upstate New York polar vortex bringing the air temperature somewhere well below zero. It was however, a gorgeous day with blue skies and green pines and there was fresh snow on the ground. I decided to go for a jaunt on cross country skis through our family’s backwoods out to the lake for some crisp air and exercise. Because it was so cold, I layered up. I put on some Wool Knee Socks with long underwear and topped with a wool sweater, jacket and cap to keep me cozy as I began to traverse the woodland trail.

Review: Saratoga Lightweight Bottoms

For the past two years, I have worked for the U.S. House of Representatives serving the constituents in the most professional manner. Politics and service to others is in my blood. I have had a wealth of experience in my young life and I always have sought out ways to challenge myself and take risk. Risk that has always bettered my character and experience.  As such, I have been in the planning stages of completing a thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail in 2018.READ MORE
