Why I Started Photographers Trail Notes

As my passion for landscape photography has grown through the years, I realized how time consuming and sometimes frustrating it can be to find detailed information about the locations I want to shoot. I’ve spent hours—even days—researching GPS coordinates, directions, trails, weather, and more to determine if a location was right for me. I realized the need for a trusted, informative, one-stop resource for all the information I would need to plan a shoot at a particular location for photographers like me. And 60+ locations and counting, here we are!

I have personally visited each of the locations on this website, which required extensive research and planning beforehand. This collected information is presented in each Photographers Trail Notes offering, which includes my hands-on personal experience.

"To me photography is a combination of art, energy, and adventure. It allows me to experience and share with others some of the many beautiful places God has created. I became involved with photography during my freshman year in college when I realized it allowed me to fuse three driving forces of my personality: my ever-wondering imagination, love for adventure, and passion for the outdoors. Today, I travel the country in search of that perfect shot—fulfilling my passions and bringing home photographic treasures to share."
