What is your favorite thing to take pictures of? 

Sunsets are by far my favorite things to take photos of because they are always unique and unpredictable. A bonfire on the beach with friends is one of my favorite settings to photograph. Being the photographer to my closest friends and taking their portraits while watching a sunset is my happy place. 

What do you do when you aren’t taking photos? 

I’m currently still in school so a lot of what I do is homework, but when I find free time I can be found cruising down Chuckanut drive in my jeep or taking my dog Honey to the dog park. In the winter you can find me at Mount Baker and in the summer I try to travel as much as possible to expand my portfolio and gain new perspectives for my photography. 

What is your favorite spot to photograph? 

Next to what used to be The Cliff House, there is a small bench overlooking Bellingham Bay. Anytime there is a sunset you can almost always find me there taking photos of the sunset as they descend on the bay. Other than that I like taking photos of everything, everywhere. I believe that there is beauty everywhere in the natural world around us, and the earth always deserves a photo opportunity.

‘A Bellingham sunset is unlike any other to me. I often go to Marine Park during sunset to take in the beauty that Bellingham has to offer to its community with the ocean, mountains and nature-loving residents.’
