I am a landscape photographer based in Ames, IA. My journey started in 2016 when I bought a DSLR to capture our road trip across California. As a researcher at ISU, my days are fast paced and chaotic. The whole world slows down when I am outdoors, in nature, with a camera in my hand. It transports me to a world that is just idyllic and helps me forget my worries. the creative artistic and rational analytical parts of my brain a always in a restless juxtaposition. My photography is a reflection of this balancing act. The photographs on display show the beautiful interaction of light with things grand and small.
