Shawn Reeder’s Bio:
I am a destination visual artist who specialises in photography, timelapse cinematography, & filmmaking. I’ve always loved the outdoors and had my life changed forever by winning a trip to Yosemite when I was 18. Instantly I knew that I’d found my new home, the Sierra Nevada; so majestically represented by one of it’s grandest valleys. What a wonderful introduction to “The Range of Light”, a place that has captured my heart, and provides a lifetime’s worth of places to explore, photograph, and just be. Having hiked, climbed, photographed, filmed, and basked in the glory of these mountains; I’ve developed a deep love for the High Sierra and all its subtleties of light, mood, texture, and feeling. Not only have I fallen in love with being in the mountains, but it’s heightened my appreciation of beauty in profound ways, and a through its unique culture, instilled in me deep revere for travelling.
