Adam Koon, Pittsburgh Member Since January 2010 Artist Statement I'm pretty simple all together. I'm a full time Firefighter and absolutely love my job. I've always taken pictures and was very lucky to live in some amazing places. I was in the Air Force for six years. Spent two years in Spokane Washington where I learned to truly love the outdoors. Then I was shipped to Alaska which was a dream of mine. I served for 4 years there and loved it so much I seperated from the Air Force, became a Firefighter and stayed another three years.
I've always been amazed by mother nature so thats were I find inspiration. I've never had any training in photography, I guess I just have a good eye, or thats what people tell me at least. Most of my pictures are from the Alaskan wilderness. When I moved back to Pittsburgh from Alaska I was fortunate enough to be able to drive, If you ever get a chance to drive across the country and through Canada, do it. There are so many beautiful sights.
Now I'm waiting to get into the Pittsburgh Fire Department and had some free time on my hands. I'm mostly taking pictures in parks around Pennsylvania, Maryland, and West Virginia. I hope you like my work.
