reubenhernandez Locals tell us that Vermont is on track this year to have the worst snowfall of all time. Meanwhile, NYC might have more snow than all of Vermont... # 5d

reubenhernandez | MY FIRST NEW YORK |

Exactly 5 years ago today, I fulfilled my long time dream of moving to New York City. I remember it was in the middle of one of those record breaking snowstorms, and there were massive piles of snow everywhere. I was officially homeless crashing at my little brother's apartment, had zero work lined up, was fresh off of a breakup, had very little money in my bank account, and I was searching Craigslist for photography jobs feeling defeated and wondering, "What the hell did I just do?!!" Back then I had no way of knowing that taking that leap of faith and moving to NYC would lead me to Antarctica, many other meaningful adventures, and love. Looking back I do know that jumping off the cliff and moving to NYC has been one of the best decisions I have ever made.

This is a photograph of me after we crossed the Antarctic Circle during my first trip to Antarctica last season, and probably one of the most raw and honest photos you will ever see of me. My face is freezing, but I am happy and fulfilled, ready for anything.

This year has been one of the most fulfilling and memorable years and looking back I am grateful and my heart is full.

Thanks for following along and for allowing me to share some of my images and stories. I’m thankful for my clients, loved ones, and friends who support me and allow me to do what I love everyday.
Wishing you love, light, and peace in 2016 and beyond.

reubenhernandez This is where coffee comes from. It takes about 35 of these cherries, hand picked, to produce one cup of joe. 1mon

reubenhernandez The thing that captivated me about Antarctica this time around is the light. The light is never ending, the magic hours last all night long, and it paints colors unlike anything I have ever seen before.
Antarctica is different and surprising each and every time; it is like no other place on earth.
