Instagrammer Gregg Boydston is part of an elite team of extreme firefighters. Boydston uses Instagram to share rare glimpses into his everyday life battling fires across the United States. He is from SoCal, but currently resides in Mammoth Lakes, California exploring new places and documenting with his iPhone, Nikon D800, or a toy we all love, the GoPro. It’s the people who are out there saving lives, which should be accredited and exposed via social media. You can see more of his work on his blog.
