I started taking photos when I was 12 because my mother said I needed a hobby. Since I was a fan of Spider-man I chose photography. Through over a decade of shooting, learning, and growing my forced hobby has become my life's passion. With a background in Ecology, I center most of my work around the "natural" world, visualizing concepts which are fundamental to the world around us. I aim to be much like Adams, Weston, and others but have a scientific and conceptual foundation to my work as well as use novel approaches to landscape photography in order to find my own personal artistic voice. My next series I am currently working on is on light pollution.
