Staff Photo Spotlight: Taylor Hunter

This month’s Staff Photo Spotlight is on Taylor Hunter, Attorney Liaison at our home office in Salt Lake City, Utah. Taylor’s photo was chosen for the month of May in our 2020 calendar.

Taylor’s winning photo is of his girlfriend, Sophie Shinsky, mountain biking in the Swiss Alps with the Matterhorn glaciers in the distance. While adventuring on a bike-packing trip from Chamonix, France to Zermatt, Switzerland, they went on a six-day biking route that took them through 200 miles of steep mountain trails. The day was perfect for hitting some downhill trails and taking in the breath-taking scenery!

Great photo Taylor! Thank you so much for submitting it to the Staff Photo Contest. We look forward to seeing more of your amazing photos.
