Christopher Kerksieck  Photographer in Ore. Inquire:

Picking moss for Max's Crown has been such a joyful experience. @joshuanightfury found this wonderful piece filled with little fern babies that will end up on the roof of the cabin. If you are seeking to explore the Olympic Peninsula yourself, make sure to head over to @highlandparkus to have a chance of making it happen.

Catching gradients along the Skykomish River with @justindkauffman and @joshuanightfury. When we arrived it was sunny and with a little bit of patience the clouds rolled in followed by rain. Definitely worth the wait.

Saying it's a pleasure to see @jacobwitzling work sun up to sun down, learning and observing would be an understatement. Watching onward, with pieces being added to Max's Crown every day, the story continues to be told while bringing fond memories of my childhood to the forefront. Pictured is my neighbor's cabin with good company taking in the scenery. — @highlandparkus

This little guy (named Loki since this interaction) was wandering about this area all to himself. Curiously adapting to a new environment and looking for new friendships. A familiar situation for many of us.

Quiet drives through the Redwoods was something I had been looking forward to for months. In 2 days, @justindkauffman, @jacobwitzling, and I reunite to finish what we started. It's about time to make something that tells its own story. Something that holds it own.

Taken at 11:30pm in Iceland, somewhere along the Arctic Ocean on medium format film. "I had no interests. I had no interest in anything. I had no idea how I was going to escape. At least the others had some taste for life. They seemed to understand something that I didn't understand. Maybe I was lacking. It was possible. I often felt inferior. I just wanted to get away from them. But there was no place to go.” ― Charles Bukowski

Snow covered giants along the Vance Creek in Washington. It was falling so hard you couldn't see 40 feet ahead of you. One of many memorable moments I've witnessed exploring along the Olympic Peninsula.

Yellowstone National Park is quite the place to experience. @bruinalexander and I caught this place early after being woken up by some friendly park rangers for car camping up the road. When editing this photograph I didn't touch the color hues. Can't wait to get back here.

Can't get enough of this beautiful view that's only 30 minutes from my soon-to-be homestead. Also, I got my little book in the mail today filled with medium format memories from my first adventure in Iceland. I posted a little sneak peak of it on my story.

Last time I put on a print sale we were able to raise over $600 to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, which in my opinion is remarkable. Some of you may know that mental illness plays and will continue to play a very critical role in my life, living with manic depression and bipolar syndrome. Loosening the ropes that societal stigmas tie onto these issues is something we need to continue to work on. I'm putting on another print sale, this time partnering with the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance donating 25% of all proceeds. Link is in my profile.

A rusted, broken down farming home beneath a gentle giant on the east coast of Iceland. Unfortunately it was so foggy this day we couldn't see what we came for but it made everything else stand out in a way I've never experienced before. I'll be back before I know it.

The Olympic Peninsula is by far my favorite region of Washington. From moss covered trees and forests, to hot springs, wildlife, beautiful lakes, and of the fog you can dream of. Excited for my new home to be nested right into the middle of it all and to start exploring.
