My name is L.J. Schneekloth. I am a “creative” personality and adventure seeker. I like to keep things fun, exciting, and real. My unique style as a photographer is defined by my personality and perspective of the world. My journey of photography began back in high school, stumbling around in the darkroom back in the days of film. I fell in love with black and white images back then, and they still hold a special place in my heart today. My interest continued through college as I took courses in photography. As a parent, my direction was focused more on my family so my “hobby” took a back seat. My wife Holli and I have 5 children, so there was never a dull (or quiet) moment. As my children grew, so did their activities, leaving me an opening to jump back into photography by capturing images of their games, performances, and life. My love and passion for photography, and seeing the joy it brings, is the reason I choose to share it with others.
I am a fan of all types of photography: from a relaxing trail in the woods to a city street with its stunning visuals of color and light. When you see me I generally have a camera with me, as it brings me joy to capture the memories all around us. I strive to bring out the emotions and inner beauty in the images I create. I use my intuition and follow my creative soul. I follow a plan, but I am known to see a moment and jump at it as not to miss an opportunity for a great shot!
