Justin Kernes

Justin Kernes is a soul-stealer/ photographer who hails from the land of sunny omnipresence; Southern California. Early in his life, the family mini-van was regularly loaded up with tents, stoves, ice chests, and sunscreen tubes, and the destination set to "wilderness adventure". National Park books were stamped. Weenies were roasted. Trails were hiked. Fun was had. It was in these weekend escapes where Kernes found his connection for the great outdoors.
In 2010, he ran away for New Mexico for the summer months to work at Philmont, world's largest youth camp. Each three-month summer, he freely volunteers to forgo electricity, regular showers, and all other civil amenities.
Kernes begrudgingly earned his BA in Art from CSU East Bay, a tiny school not even remotely considered for its art program. When he is not taking cold bucket showers and cooking from a wood burner, he can most likely be found at the local climbing gym or cafe.
