Beauty That Surrounds You

Michael Torkildsen

I have been interested in photography since my teens. My mom owned an one-hour film processing lab where I would grab handfuls of film, shoot amazingly crappy photos, and process the film myself. 

I rarely shot during college, but photography stuck with me. Digital cameras were emerging but weren't quite ready or affordable. It wasn't until I moved to the Pacific Northwest when everything aligned and I picked up a camera again. This time I got serious about it. 

When the weather is the most interesting, I'll be out shooting.
