Firefighter Captures the Intensity and Danger of the Job [PHOTOS]

US Forest Service firefighter, “hotshot” and brewery master Gregg Boydston shares with the world how intense his job truly is. Boydston uses his photography skills and Instagram account to reveal the unpredictable danger he encounters each day when fighting forest fires out West. Thanks to Boydston, we can experience the burning orange flames and the thick smoke for ourselves, without the added hazard of being in the field. Sadly, these wildfires are engulfing the magnificent national parks in America like Yosemite and Sierra National Forest.

On his website, Boydston explains:

Whether it be fighting wildfires in the summer or working at a brewery in the winter, you will always find me exploring new places or on some sort of adventure. Documenting most of this through photos and video, I hope to let everyone in on the things and places I experience.
