Why I Leave the City Lights in Search of Starlight

Living in the city makes capturing stars a challenge.

These cold, clear Pacific Northwest nights driving up to the dark Cascade Mountains turns into an adventure as I bundle up and prepare for a long evening capturing the best photos I can. The dark night sky lights up with stars the further I travel from the city, which inspires me to push myself further and further every time I go out for a shoot. I constantly aspire the grow and achieve more with every shot I take, pushing myself to my limits and beyond just for the photo. For me, it's a combination of the adventures I take and the photos that come from it. There are always new places I can explore in the Pacific Northwest, and my journeys are just beginning.
