In today’s hustle and bustle, it’s often easier and more convenient to get to your destination a little quicker. However, there are benefits to taking the back roads, the roads less traveled if you will, and your photography can benefit from these side roads. Kristen has spent the last two years traveling to those “must see” destinations in the west, and has discovered that sometimes the real journey began with the question, “where does that road go?” Pack your atlas, get your camera gear ready and your sense of adventure. We’re going to put a little gravel in our travel!

Why Take the Road Less Traveled
Friday, March 10th, 2017
2:30 PM – 3:00 PM
I am a landscape and fine art photographer based in Northern Nevada. My lifelong passions have been animals, outdoors and photography. Landscape photography is all about finding the simplicity in life for me. I like to create images that brings out a longing to escape back to nature, or to find that feeling of “home.” I find that peace in everything from making a water fall move in slow motion, a door begging you to tell the story of what is behind it, a fence line holding a field back, to a simple bench against an old barn waiting for you to sit and watch the sun set behind the ocean. It’s about capturing life.
