The rocky mountains are a force of 14,000 foot peaks waiting to be explored, climbed and adventured on. On a recent trip to Colorado my fiancé had the opportunity to travel through the rocky mountain national park. The entrance provides a great view of the mountain range, Once you enter the park you have now just entered an outdoor playground of all skill levels, whether you like to hike, climb, kayak or canoe. If getting out and being physical is not an option, then the drive through the park is simply a must!
As a photographer you are drawn towards certain attributes; style, unique perspectives, passion, storytelling and creating something know one else has created. When I am photographing a subject or am doing landscapes, I submerge myself into my work. I believe as a photographer it is my duty to create stories from my experiences and ideas. With that being said when I envision something coming to life I use my experiences and past obstacles to shape how the image will come to life.

What are the things that make you passionate? What is it that you crave inside and out, often times we are willing to push the limits for what we believe in, but often fall short soon after we start. Why is this? Do we not have the right tools or connections to move us forward, do we simply need guidance in the direction we are trying to go. I believe that when you want something down to your core, there is absolutely nothing that will tell you different, know one can convince you that you should not follow through with it. This kind of determination, grit and passion creates an extraordinary new self that holds all of the untapped potential you possess. There are always hardships that come with new experiences and beginnings, within those hardships that you may face are the solutions to move forward and to learn. Be curious and ask questions there is always room to improve every craft and talent you may have. I am a huge believer in the work you are willing to put in everyday and every-night, the results will eventually show. Be quick to listen and slow to speak. Learn from all of the mistakes you have made and use them as the mortar for your foundation. Lets start building!
