I love photography. Cameras, lenses, tripods. Travel, planning, playing with light. The exploration and everything about the process has changed my life. I first started getting serious about photography in 2004. I was still in college working on my graphic design degree, and I got my first 35mm film SLR. That winter I went on a trip to England and snuck off for few days to Paris. I was still learning how to focus and expose, composition was a bit of mystery to me, but I was instantly in love with it.
A few years later I got my first DSLR. A Canon Rebel XT, and a Sigma 17-70 lens. Living in central Wisconsin, there were plenty of locations where light pollution was low. I lived in Oshkosh for a time and found myself in cemeteries at night. Or crawling around old docks by the lake.
In 2015 a friend invited me on a trip with her to Iceland. How can you say no to that? So in early 2016 we traveled around Iceland and I got a taste for what that country has to offer. Before my first trip was done I was already planning my second. So in the Summer of 2017 I returned and got to explore more of this beautiful country. The landscapes Iceland has are spellbinding and like nothing else in the world. On my second trip I could barely tear myself away from the landscapes long enough to rest. It's like magic!
