Here I am. Young guy, out on the world. My name is Sam and I am from Portland, Or. A great place. I'll never regret growing up in an urban space with such a connection to the nature surrounding it. 

I have spent the majority of my youth away from a camera, and it has only been within the last 4 years that I really began to pick up an interest in photography.

I try as best I can to get away from Portland and into the hills. Most often I find myself on the slopes of Mt. Hood, a wilderness I have grown quite acquainted with. On rare occasion and time permitting, I go into the southern cascade reach of Washington, to see what my eye can find. 

Feeling my way through it all, like most do.
