It all started when...

 

I went backpacking for the first time in the Great Smokey Mountains in North Carolina.  I saw such beauty there I wanted to capture it. However I quickly found that my little point and shoot camera didn't do it justice.  So I began learning more about photography and invested in my first Canon SLR. I first bought a Canon Rebel and stared to shoot on all my outdoor adventures.  From there I upgraded to the Canon 7d and started to invest in some higher quality lenses.  Since then I have loved the pursuit of the "perfect shot."  You know... that one shot where you are in the right place at the right time.  It is in those moments that I find a peace and connection with God that I truly cherish. That drives my passion and love of landscape photography.
