My interest in photography goes back over 10 years to playing in a dark room during photo class in high school. From there, I was able to study and learn more about the technical side of photography during classes in college. More recently, my passion has shifted toward natural landscapes and adventure. Over the years, my older brother Don has found peace and growth by heading into wild places. Around 6 years ago we began camping together in Central Oregon, which really sparked in me a love of the outdoors. In 2011, I climbed my first volcano with Don and my father-in-law Dave. I was hooked! This opened up new terrain that I had never considered available. Over the past 5-6 years, I’ve had the fortune to visit some of the most beautiful and unique landscapes and areas through hiking, climbing, and skiing! I also have had the fortune to do some traveling around the world where I have tried to capture new experiences and places.
On each adventure, I always make sure to take photos so that I can share these experiences with those I care about. My goal through photography is to share my perspective with people. For others to see the way I experience them. For the past few years, I’ve wanted to share my photos but haven’t found a way that was satisfactory. Last year, I decided to start up a website where I can share photos and stories in a way that is simple and meaningful to me. Thank you for taking the time to share in my adventures!
