America, the beautiful. From sea to shining sea. Throughout my life, I’ve been to a small handful of national parks. It was on my first trip to Colorado where I started my journey into traditional landscape photography. Even back then, in 2013, I had an eye for the less-than-expected landscape photographs. After studying contemporary landscape and traditional landscape photographers, I began to look at these incredible parks differently. While my family or friends are shooting photos of the typical viewpoints, I’m off to the side, photographing the opposite direction at something that is often over-looked.
