  3. Sometimes when I want to take some picture of my friends in the wild, I talk with him/her about what gesture I want to capture. For instance, when I want to capture my friend’s smile, I ask him about a good moment a few days ago…
  4. ISO, lighting is everything, so check the camera ISO, always

  • When did your passion for adventure start?

It started when I was 9. My house is located near the beach in Bontang. After school my friend always asked me to play on the beach, until we get bored. Because of that boredom, we began to look for a new playground. There is a residential area located above the sea near the beach that connected to mangrove forest and finally to the river. From that day, we moved to our new playground, the mangrove forest. The favorite thing we like to do here is to catch a water snake, if one of us catch it, then we release it, and so on. The winner is the one who can catch it the most. We get bored easily, and we moved on to the next destination until we reach the jungle where we usually camped, but not as often as we go catching water snake; too many wild boars, baboons, and monkeys.

  • Do you have a motto that you apply to your life?

My motto “because verily, after hardship comes ease” its from one of the Quran verse. It always helps me through difficult times.

  • What are your favorite artists?

I like almost all kind of music: rock, classic rock, punk, folk, jazz, blues, classical, dangdut (Indonesian folk) etc. The most played in my Itunes are: Payung Teduh, Intwine, Float, White Shoes and the couples company, Alter Bridge, Passenger, Eddi Vedder, Patti Smith, Janis Joplin, Mozart. I recently listened to trampled by turtles; too many to list.

Mountains, jungles, beach. For the next destinations I will go to Mt. Semeru, the summit of Java Island.

  • Which sport do you like?

Football, futsal, table tennis, volleyball, softball, skateboarding

  • What are your biggest accomplishments as an adventurer?

There are 7 main islands in Indonesia and I’ve visited 4: Borneo, Java, Sulawesi, and Lesser Sunda Islands

I don’t know anything about Fat Moose before you like my picture, no store in Indonesia. But after I watched the video and catalogue about it, I think I like the style especially the jungle style and the feature of it.

Vans for daily shoes, Eiger for outdoor activities (Hardshell jacket, shorts, trekking sandals & shoes), I like any t-shirts brands with nice design, for pants/jeans i like to go to tailor, so no brand.

I like Eiger/TNF jacket

I AM WALTER WILLIAMS

Wearefatmoose

Where are you from ?

I am from Wolcott, CT. Spent most of my adult life in North Carolina and traveling the world.

Where do you live now ?

I am currently residing in Hamden, CT.

69

What do you think are your Career Highlights ?

Tough question, I’d have to say traveling to Iceland to shoot a look book and documented the time spent there was a highlight of my livelihood as a photographer.

What is your favorite place to take picture ?

Easy, Iceland. However, as I am located in the states my favorite place would have to be anywhere in the woods. There is something special about disconnecting from everything and plunging into the wilderness.

What is your tips to take picture ? And which camera brand do you use ? 

First of all, learn your camera. Read the instruction manual and practice on multiple subjects before you try to capture the shot that truly counts. Who knows what could happen, you might get that lucky shot while practicing. I am a Canon user. I personally don’t care about falling into the Nikon and Canon debate. Every few years or so the newest models top the competitors. Buy nice glass and don’t stress about the camera body.

Who are your role models (photographer, adventurer) ? 

(I think this question is asking who my role models are.)

The adventurer/photographer named Jimmy Chin and a producer/director named Curt Morgan. These gentlemen have shaped the way I visualize my style of photography and videography.

IMG_9541_1

Any favorite places to go shopping (online and real shop) ? 

I have been lacking in the shopping department because I have a brother who works with a few clothing companies. I always ask him to get me some clothes when he gets a chance. Some of these companies are as follows: Iron and Resin, Poler, REI, and Forgotten Youth Supply.

When did your passion for adventure start ?

Long story short, my childhood summers consisted of camping and spending time in the woods. Fast forward to a year out of high school and I enlisted into the U.S. Marine Corps. My time spent serving my country furthered my desire to travel and discover what this amazing world has to offer.

Do you have a motto that you apply to your life ?

Take it day by day. It is something my mother would tell me when things would get hectic. Turns out her infinite wisdom would help me get to where I am today.

What are your favorite artists (music, live performances…) ? 

You can find a wide variety of music on my iTunes. Mostly consist around as follows: rock, alternative, hardcore, metal, classical, and classic rock. Some of the go to bands and artists are the Foo Fighters, Parkway Drive, Hans Zimmer, Queen, Linkin Park, and M83M83. So many to list but on any given day you can catch me listening to bands listed above.

Where do you usually like to go on adventure ?

Since I live in Connecticut it’s easy to just go anywhere around the state. The weekends I usually take some time to venture around New England.

Any favorite places to go skiing ?

Although I don’t go as often as I would like to I still manage to spend some part of the winter up in Vermont. I usually go to Mount Snow, Okemo Mountain and Killington Mountain.

Which sport do you like ? 

I like all sports and appreciate what each offers but I mostly watch American Football and MMA. Essentially because they are the two sports I excelled in and thoroughly enjoy spectating.

What are your biggest accomplishments as an adventurer ? 

My biggest accomplishment as an adventurer would have to be narrowed down to one specific night in Iceland. After getting lost in the middle of the Highlands of Iceland my brother, along with a friend, witnessed one of the most amazing phenomenon’s of this world, aurora borealis, aka the northern lights. It was so dark that it appeared to light up the night sky like the fourth of July.

What do you feel about Fat Moose brand ? 

I have heard nothing but amazing reviews and kind words about the brand. My brother, the one who has worked with clothing lines, mentioned that Denmark knows what they are doing when it comes to clothing. He confirmed my impression of the company when he attended a trade show in NYC and visited the Fat Moose booth.

Which clothing brand do you like ? 

Brands that have clothes that fit me. I’m 6’1” 230 lbs (185 cm, 104 kg) with an active lifestyle and a lot of time spent in the gym. If the brand is consistent with sizing, then I usually stay with them. Iron and Resin has some of my favorite fitting t-shirts. ( I haven’t worn any shirts from Fat Moose yet)

Which jacket brand do you like ?

Currently I have been using a jacket from Beyond Clothing. They meet my military standard and have produced some amazing (made in the USA) clothing. I have been searching for a new jacket and have had my eye on a specific jacket on the Fat Moose site.

ISAAC4 2
What is your tips to take picture? And which camera brand do you use ? 
I use Nikon but I’m thinking about switching to Canon.
My number one tip is to always make sure you’ve got what you need before you venture out, there’s nothing worse than going to shoot and not having something silly like a large enough memory card.
Any favorite places to go shopping (online and real shop) ? 
Favorite to shop online is probably Amazon and in real store is probably Best Buy.
When did your passion for adventure start?
It started once I started running Cross Country for my High School. We would run to so many places around the town and I’d get to see lots of places where nobody would normally see driving or riding in a car.
Do you have a motto that you apply to your life?
“It is what it is” really what it keeps me grounded. There are some things in the universe that you can’t control. Sometimes you’ve just gotta let it go and keep pushing on

What are your favorite artists (music, live performances…) ? 
I listen to a lot of different types of music to be honest but my favorite artist out of them all is Harley Streten aka Flume. He’s a great live performer and producer musician. My second favorite artist is Ta-Ku because of how the vibe of his style of music is real nice and chilled out. When I want something to amp up to I’ll listen to someone like Drake, Childish Gambino or even Madvillain.
Where do you usually like to go on adventure?
I like to stick to areas on the more rural side of town but sometimes I’ll venture to the urban side a little.
ISAAC1
Which sport do you like ? 
I’m a huge Football fan but my favorite sport of all time is Track & Field mainly because I participate in the sport and I love to run.
What are your biggest accomplishments as an adventurer? 
My biggest accomplishment is going out in the last blizzard that we had and taking the bridge shot that you featured on your Instagram and Facebook Pages.
What do you feel about Fat Moose brand ?

When was your first adventure? What did you do?
My relationship with adventure comes with blood. My father was a mountain explorer and he taught me many of the things I know today. That eventually brought me to train myself as a mountain guide as well.
My first experience was beside  my father when I was 6 years old. It was a big effort, and as such it taught me to truly appreciate the challenge of the climb and adventure.
