Jen Chapman

Photographer, Writer

True exploration.

Hi, I'm Jen. I know I shouldn't be telling you this, but the truth is I don't like to think of myself as a professional photographer or writer or, well... anything. I'm just a girl that loves life - a girl that thinks living is about having an adventure every single day. Some days, adventure means walking your dogs down the street, hand in hand with your loved one. Others, it means traveling across the country or even the world to immerse yourself in a completely different culture than the one you call home. Adventure just means that no matter what goes right or what goes wrong, you're all in. And at the end of the day, you're still smiling; you're still happy to be alive. When I'm out in nature, I photograph because there is an impulse in my soul to capture the moment. Something moves in me that doesn't always move in everyday life. This incredible appreciation sweeps over me that gets lost if I don't step outside my everyday routine and go find it. And as I come home with a collection of images, I come home with endless opportunities to reground myself. As the images move me, I write about the lessons I've learned while capturing them - the important life lessons that only time in nature can teach you. They are lessons I am still learning every single day. I've perfected nothing just yet. So it isn't that I hope you see the person that I am, but rather, the person I hope to become.
