About The Copper Lake

I've been writing on my blog, The Copper Lake, and taking photos since 2010, a project that revolves around my life on Mackinac Island, MI. I find beauty and peace through nature, and have felt the best way to share what I see with others is through the lens. I also lead a student  photo club and teach basic photography skills through my high school fine arts class at Mackinac Island Public School. Although I consider myself a hobby photographer, I am constantly learning and growing through my experiences, and only hope to continue growing as a photographer. I currently shoot with a Canon Rebel t6i, a Samsung NX3300, and my iPhone XS. With your Patreon support, I hope to be able to upgrade my Canon camera in the future for a full-frame camera, therefore providing higher quality photos on my blog and to my supporters.
