"Stories. That's what it's all about. An image can show you a place but does it speak to you at all?
I have spent my entire life wandering the woods. From close to home, to driving thousands of miles to experience nature. I suppose nature and I got along from day one. As a kid it was a place that I could have a moment of peace and quiet. As an adult I still get that same peaceful feeling. My photography journey started by just wanting to show people the beauty around them, near or far.
Life is full of busy tasks, stress and drama. My entire goal is to create something that makes you want to slow down and enjoy your surroundings."
