Alpine State of Mind
A photographic journey
7 p.m. Wednesday, June 15
Roxy Theater, Morton
Northwest native and Mortonite Jason Hummel learned to ski in the backcountry at age six, but he didn’t pick up photography until his best friend, Ben Manfredi, passed away in a kayaking accident in late 2003. It was with Ben’s camera that Jason took his first images and found he had a passion for photography.
In late 2009, as the markets were crashing, Jason left his career as a financial advisor to ski, hike, bike and kayak. Along the way, he was asked to publish his images. It was then that Jason discovered photography was more to his liking than crunching numbers and advising clients on the best way to invest their life savings. He decided to take his own advice and invested his life savings in himself.
Today, the return on that investment can be seen in his images, which continue to grow and develop as he expands his horizons.
