Shanti presents photographer Jerry Skowronek:
“After growing up in Northern Michigan I took a classs in the Outwardbound program in the Glacier Peak area, a 24 day mountaineering and survival course. I fell in love with the Northwest. I worked in a number of National Parks such as Mt. Rainier and The Grand Canyon as a chef. I was able to get a lot of hiking and climbing in. After a number of chance encounters with wildlife, I decided I needed to have a camera with me.
This was about 12 years ago. With the digital age, I jumped right in and have been putting together my camera gear as I could afford it. Right now it’s a serious hobby, but hope to get to the next level eventually.”
