Born & raised in Pennsylvania and currently based in Salt Lake City, Utah, Ross is an adventure addict with an unquenchable thirst for the outdoors and all the fruit Mother Nature has to offer. Ross has had many hobbies over the years, such as PC gaming, skateboarding, snowboarding, climbing, mountaineering, music and, most recently, photography. He originally moved to SLC about three and a half years ago because of his passion for snowboarding, which was after 4 consecutive winter trips to visit & ride with close friends from home (thank you Brandon & Meagan McMahon!). When he had moved to Utah, Ross didn’t own a “real” camera. He took up some very novice-level photography and videography with his first GoPro about 6 years ago. After a few months of living in SLC during the summer of 2013, he had saved up to get his first DSLR so he could document snowboarding and climbing adventures. Things started out pretty slow through his photographic journey as he had zero real education or experience, nor did he have any friends that were into photography – at least until a couple of years later. In the summer of 2016, he picked up his first wide angle lens and the level of interest for taking photography seriously piqued. He’s been head over heels since.
Words behind my work:
The foundation and theme for my photography is deeply intertwined with my love for all things natural and earthly, and my vision is to capture things a little bit differently than most of the crowd. I love the technical aspects of photography and am always trying to make the most of a scene to recreate what I felt in the field or what I saw that day. One of my biggest goals through photography is to show people how naturally beautiful our planet can be and I truly hope to inspire others to care as much as myself. We only have one earth; we must cherish it, appreciate it and take care of it. My favorite sights to photograph end up being bizarre visuals and natural wonders of the world that simply don’t seem real.
