Bio: I’m 22 year old photographer, born and raised in Minnesota. I live for adventure and pushing my limits in order to find out new things about myself. I love talking to strangers, the stranger the better…you never know what you might find out.
Favorite place to eat: My parent’s kitchen, but here in Duluth I love 7 West Tap House.
Favorite place to shop: Where ever there is good photography equipment sold… National Camera Exchange, Adorama or B&H photo never disappoint.
Favorite Duluth activity: In Duluth, my favorite activity is shooting outside. There are tons of things to do but being outside with a camera helps me take in each scene and each moment one at a time. It forces me to see all the beauty that is Duluth in a different and more focused way. Other than that, you can find me on my bike or my snowboard.
Favorite time of day to shoot: Both the morning and evening Golden Hour/Blue Hour.
Favorite season in Duluth: Thats tough… They’re all beautiful. Especially fall, but there’s something about the sound of snow falling on a quiet morning that gets me every time. To answer the question, winter is my favorite season up here. The true culture of Duluth comes alive then…There are still people out hiking, biking and enjoying this little slice of paradise we have here.
Photos taken with: I shoot a Sony A77 with a few different lenses depending on what the subject is that I’m photographing.
