I love traveling and hiking to capture the spectacular landscapes that exist across the US. Visually oriented, landscape photography provides an outlet for me to capture my love for nature while enjoying the outdoors.
Through photography, I have become fascinated with how the "sweet light," can transform an ordinary scene into a magical moment.
