Hey guys it’s Charlie Keating here! I’m a student and adventurer, and have been shooting for a little over a year now. Ever since I got my camera I can’t stop creating new images and exploring the unknown. I love shooting landscapes and the adventure lifestyle, along with nightscapes which will be featured today. My goal through my photography is to capture the beauty of our planet to inspire others to travel and enjoy the earth. .

Do you remember the first time you picked up a camera?
My first memory picking up a camera was about 2 years ago before summer started. My friend was selling his camera for cheap, so I decided why not, and haven’t looked back since.
Tell us about your latest adventure...
I recently returned from a trip to Iceland and had an incredible experience. It is beyond beautiful there and a photographer’s dream. My favorite moment on that trip was experiencing some of the most incredible hot springs in the world all to ourselves deep in the wilderness. My advice for visiting Iceland is to be willing to go see all the places at night or early morning so that you can experience them with no one there. It makes a world of a difference and you get to see it without out all the distractions or tourists

With social media so easy accessible I find inspiration from so many different accounts on Instagram including Chris Burkard, Travis Burke, and Clark Little. If you are ever lacking inspiration head over to Chris Burkard’s page and you can find it there.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
In 10 years hopefully I can use photography as a tool to travel the world full time and support a family.
One spot to visit in your hometown
My favorite spot in my hometown is the cliffs by The Bay. Nothing beats watching the sunset over the water there with some friends.
Any last words?
I learned photography from my brother in law (@masonandmegan) who is a professional wedding photographer. He taught me the ins and out of photography and the business behind it as well as invaluable lessons about lighting and composition. He still teaches me to this day and getting to shoot with him is always a treat.
