When I last worked a summer at Forest Home in 2012, I was just coming into my own. I had begun shooting weddings in 2011 and had some during the summer while living a camp. My focus and interest was in portraits and pictures of my friends. It was only until after I left that my interest turned to landscapes and skill sets that involved a little more patience, composition and travel.
Coming back and spending some time in the canyon gave me the chance to go back and see the camp and it's surrounding nature with new eyes and a different vantage point than what I left with.
After a couple of years of travel and landscape photography, I walked back into the Forest Home marketing department and asked what type of photos they needed from me. To my pleasure, they showed me an inspiration page of landscapes and astro-photography. The rest is history.
