John Day Fossil Beds National Monument – The Painted Hills Unit

An amazing location on a crystal clear afternoon…I love Oregon!ย ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š

Crater Lake

This blue gem is located in south-central Oregon. The incredible blue color comes from it’s nearly pure water absorbing every other wavelength of light. And although it may look like a meteor crater it’s actually a collapsed volcano called a caldera, that has since filled with precipitation. ๐Ÿ’šOregon!

Scidmore Park in Three Rivers, MI (night)

Doll heads beneath the surface!

This image was shot as part of an assignment for a digital photography class.
Seems like most of the photos I shot for school were from my hometown. This one is a prime example of me going “home” to do homework.
Scidmore Park is the busiest park in Three Rivers because it has a mini zoo and an ok sledding hill. It also has an abandoned hospital that’s boarded up and gets broken in to and tagged regularly. It’s pure Michigan.

Pacific Coast Sunset #1

This seems like a good place to start. I’ve been interested in photography my whole life but never really pursued it in a serious way until 2010. While attending college for graphic design I took a photography class for a required liberal arts elective. After one semester in the darkroom, I was hooked. I switched majors and finished out the photography program. Over the following years I expanded my knowledge and abilities. I’ve shot nearly every type of subject matter at one point or another, but I always find myself most enthralled by nature. The majority of what I photograph nowadays is nature related. Like this image of Bald Point, looking out toward Submarine Rock and Tillamook Rock. ย Shot in beautiful Ecola State Park, Oregon.
