Ross was born and raised in McMinnville, Oregon. He was bitten by the photography bug while in high school and has rarely been seen without his camera since. The natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest set the stage for his love of the outdoors and the inspiration to photograph them any chance he got. Ross feels most at home and a tremendous sense of peace with his feet firmly planted under the stars. Moving to Colorado in 2010 to experience and photograph the state's unsurpassed natural beauty and its possibility for endless adventuring was a natural next step. With life framed by picturesque mountains, scenic canyons and lush green meadows, his passion for photography grew by leaps and bounds. In 2018, he decided to live his someday, today and pursue a career in photography full time. Ross works with outdoor brands to showcase their products in incredible places.
