My Name is Brad Spiess. I've always had a love of photography as an art form, but while growing up the idea of being in a dark room dealing with chemicals to develop film never appealed to me, then along came the digital revolution in photography and everything changed.
A few years ago I started a web site for hiking in San Diego. IHikeSanDiego.com. As work progressed on my web site I added more and more content, including photographs of the hikes that I had been on. I always tried to make my photographs better, but I was always shooting with a little point and shoot camera or my phone, then I had the chance to buy a professional camera and that really opened up what I could do, after that my passion for photography exploded.
Once I had the new camera ( A Sony A7M2 ) I spent more and more time learning not only everything I could learn about my camera but all the different ideas on proper composition, lighting, post processing, etc...Needless to say my journey is far from over, I strive to better my skills and develop my ideas for great photography.I hope you enjoy my photographs as much as I enjoy creating them.
