Photographer: Sarah Bakker of Sharp Shutter Photography & Design
Part-Time Professional Photographer
I've been a nature photographer for over 10 years. Hiking in Spearfish, South Dakota, sparked my interest in landscape photography. I found myself really enjoying the suspense of what the sunsets would turn out to be.
I get excited when I travel by seeing new species of trees or plants, knowing the landscape is changing. It makes me smile from ear to ear when I see an amazing waterfall, enjoying the power and beauty of nature at the same time. The adventure is half the reason I get joy from a photo trip and the other reason is that I get to capture an emotion.
