AMBITION. WORK ETHIC. NO FEAR.
MEET FEATURED ADVENTURE PHOTOGRAPHER: DAVID RULE
My name is David Rule and I'm from Pinedale, WY which is a little town just south of Jackson Hole. I'm now a full-time travel photographer and filmmaker, but I never really envisioned this as a career until a year ago. My original plan was to become a doctor, and I even finished a degree in physiology and neuroscience. Throughout the process, however, I realized that I wasn’t passionate about it at all. I began having nightmares and imagined myself when I’m 60, full of regret and wishing that I had pursued a different career. I decided that the time to make a change is now when I’m 20, not when it’s too late.
Since, I’ve had more opportunities pop up than I ever expected, and it’s really shown me that it doesn’t take tons of knowledge or a photography degree to make traveling the world a feasible career. It just takes an individual with ambition, work ethic, and no fear. As one of the least artistic people to ever live, I can say with confidence that if I can do this, anyone can. My travels have taken me all across the globe, and I love being part of new cultures and finding incredible landscapes. I like to find new perspectives of places and capture them in a way that incorporates people with nature. I'm not sure where I'll end up in the future, but I just try to live life to the fullest, one journey at a time.
ABOUT THE HANGTAG
At STALYON we’ve been inspired by a number of individuals using adventure for good. David Rule is an adventure photographer we quickly became a fan of when he was just rising up. David’s ambition, work ethic and fearlessness is what caught our attention and we are happy to have David featured on STALYON’s first hangtag at select REI locations.
