The power of nature can be inspiring and at times intimidating. It however, consumes us and always keeps us longing to experience its grandeur even more.
Photography has been a perfect way for me to experience nature and landscapes in our beautiful state, and capture some magical moments that are often taken for granted. When I take photographs my goal is to capture the emotion and joy that I feel when seen firsthand. Through photography my goal is to share those experiences with those who view my art. It is this concept that inspired me when I was in high school viewing other photographs.
I am from Grand Rapids, Michigan, and my work tends to focus on landscapes in Michigan that are often complimented with the beauty of nature. A lighthouse is always more interesting with the backdrop of waves of the lake. Through my work, my goal is to reunite the viewer with some memories of places visited in the past, and introduces viewers to places yet to be experienced.
