Ian Perez, Photo Naturalist
I found guiding early while growing up on a dude ranch. It eventually led to Yosemite where I led multiday saddle trips through the High Sierra. But I always wanted to see true wilderness. That led me to Alaska where people are the exception not the rule. Now, between guiding and my work as an outdoor adventure journalist, I’m seeking to share experiences that break down the barrier between the human and natural worlds.
