A self-taught, freelance photographer who calls Lander, Wyoming home base, Jared finds inspiration taking photographs of people interacting with their natural surroundings, which most commonly involves moving over rock, dirt, snow or water.

Originally from Kentucky, Jared was introduced to natural beauty at an early age, exploring nearby forests with his father, who would constantly point out various species of trees. With dreams of exploring bigger country and mountainous regions, Jared moved to Wyoming after college to be closer to wild places. He hasn't looked back...only forward, and quite often through the viewfinder of a camera.
