What do you love to photograph the most? My very favorite things to photograph are landscapes and night photography. I spend about half the year in Utah, so the possibilities are endless! I love streams, the red rock formations, waterfalls, and the milkyway! It is truly amazing what nature has created for us to enjoy. And I feel compelled to capture it in photos as best I can.
What is one thing you have learned that has improved your photography? The one thing that has helped me improve my photography skills is to step out of my comfort zone and try new techniques that I have learned from fellow photographers and instructors. Traveling to different time zones, different places, and asking questions on how to accomplish certain looks/photos have resulted in some of my favorite photographs. I probably would have never set out at 5 AM to capture a sunrise or stay up until 3:30 AM to shoot the milkyway by myself, but encouraged and accompanied by fellow photographers it was fun!
Advice you’d give to others wanting to grow in their photography skills: Never stop learning from fellow photograhers, classes, videos, reading, etc. I am continually fine-tuning my skills in photography and editing, and am learning how much fun this form of art is.
