How long have you been shooting?
Bought my first digital camera and began shooting photography back in 2014.

Right now, my dream location is Iceland. Just looks like such a magical place!
Who are some photographers that inspire you?
First would be my uncle who introduced me to photography. Some of my other inspiration comes from the likes of Jimmy Chin, Paul Nicklen, Hordur Kristleifsson, Ansel Adams, my girlfriend and literally someone new every day.
What excites you about photography?
Photography excites me by having the ability to capture and portray something just the way you see it, or want to see it. It’s just you, your camera and the ability to capture the spontaneity of what life throws at you.
