Justin Wathke, Photographer
Growing up in Chippewa Falls Wisconsin, Justin had frequent access to the natural beauty in the upper Midwest. As an active outdoorsman (snowboarding, camping, biking and hiking), he is able to see many of nature's wonders first hand. This has inspired him to obtain his images with the camera. He has been able to capture the essence of a place or situation, with just a few photographs.
