HI! I'm A.j. Marino, welcome to the site! I am 16 years old and residing in my beautiful hometown of South Lake Tahoe, California. I have always had the interest in photography, the artistic side. Anyone can point a camera and press a shutter, but photography goes farther than that. It's a vision, a fine art, which few will master. In my lifetime I hope to master the fine art of photography. That feeling of seeing my art, my vision on a sheet of paper really makes me feel like I’ve done something more than myself. Being a landscape photographer is not easy, a long day with heavy backpacks and equipment just to press a button and perfect the image that you have seen millions of times in your head. I mainly specialize in landscape and nature photography being where I live, Lake Tahoe is the most photographed place in the world. My main goal in this career is to bring a smile to the viewers face, and have the feeling of satisfaction that I had when I put in so much work to capture that image. All of the images on this site were captured 100% by me . I hope you enjoy the beginning of a lifetime of photography. Best Regards, A.J.
