My Bio
My name is Kristofferson Armistead, I began my voyage into the realm of photography as a hobby in late 2008. Since then its rapidly grown into a passion thats taken control of a significant portion of my life.

I am completely untrained in the art of photography, lighting, editing or art in general. Everything you see has been self taught through trial and error. In this way I think I have gained a greater appreciation for the art, and it has certainly been a journey of self discovery as well. It is my dream to work for an establishment like National Geographic but I havent decided if this is anything more than a full time hobby. Only time, work, and lots of shutter clicks will tell !

Just know that I TRULY appreciate the support and it means the world to me... im here even im silent and I see everything <3 Anyways, back to Zion ! I have spent the past 4 days in Zion national park, Utah, cramming in as much hiking and shenaniganry as possible. I have nearly 500 photos to go through (though that number is skewed as some are part of HDR triplets.) So im forewarning yo

Which of these do you prefer ? The shot is the same, th...

Life now has direction.

Life now has direction.

This is basically a life update, spawned by a recent epihany whilst talking with my friend Blake. Take everything with a grain of salt as some of it may sound a little far fetched, but this is just the prelimnary outline. Anyways, in a sense I have more or less found a direction for my life, something I have been woefully lacking until now. Below is outlined the general structure of that plan. Obviously since this whole concept is in its infancy there is much that is subject to change im sure :) Really only in the past couple of hours things have really started to come together to form some semblance of a plan. Though it may sound somewhat l
