Daniel Larsen, Hilo, HI Member Since March 2012 Artist Statement Originaly from Olympia, Washington I spent five years with the Army stationed in Texas only leaving for two tours in Iraq. Having fulfilled my contract I have left active Army service and am now persuing my educational goals; working towards a B.S. in Astronomy and a B.A. in Physics at the University of Hawaii in Hilo.
I have been interested in landscape and nature photography for many years but was unable to afford a quality camera untill more recently. But I am now making up for that lost time by spending as much of my free time as I can exploring my new surroundings and improving my abilities and techniques.
While my career goals involve astronomical research I plan to contine to use any free time I come accross to explore and record the beauty of nature and share it with those who are unable to see it for themselves.
