“My name is Jeff.” (Quote from 22 Jump Street)
I appreciate the raw reality of everyday life, the fleeting beauty of those in-between moments, and I do my very best to take every picture with that in mind. Who are we kidding… that opening sentence came with this website template.
Hiking our public lands has been my jam for a solid ten years now. Nowadays, I haul around a heavy camera backpack with me when I hike. Hope you enjoy the photos… because hiking was so much easier wearing only a fanny pack with a water bottle.
“Chasing the light” is the expression used in landscape photography. Addictive is the thrill of this chase. Chasing that ever elusive light is the game. A game that challenges me on so many levels. Getting out of my comfort zone… pushing my physical limits… awakening my soul!
Reading, planning, packing, flying, driving, hiking, camping, frozen fingers, freeze dried food, new friends, quiet nights, incredible sights… It is not the picture itself… but everything leading up to the photograph that I truly enjoy the most!
Do I always get a sweet shot when the sun first breaks the horizon? Good light is a rare gem. It can take repeated attempts to capture. Even if I did manage to capture some nice light on a given hike… a photo wouldn’t capture what I enjoy the most… which is the anticipation of that moment when you finally get to where you’re going and it is looking even better than you could have imagined!
