MOLLY BURDICK – Creator of Hearts for Adventure
DAVE BURDICK – Photographer and Co-Adventurer
Born and raised in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, I developed a strong appreciation early on for the outdoors and the energy I experience while in nature. I found my passion for the outdoors by constantly exploring the rivers and mountains in my backyard. I was inspired to explore from seeing photographs by Ansel Adams, and knew I wanted to pursue the opportunity to capture images of nature’s beauty. Currently residing in Portland, Oregon, I’m just a short drive to the rugged Oregon Coast, the mountain peaks of the Cascades, and the many beautiful waterfalls of the Columbia River Gorge. Just about every weekend I am home, I am out exploring any of these scenic locations with a camera in my hand. Beyond the Pacific Northwest, my adventurous travels have taken me throughout many exotic locations along the West coast. I have mountain biked singletrack trails in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah, rock climbed the boulders of Joshua Tree in Southern California, and hiked the glacier peaks of Montana. My photography style focuses on capturing landscapes during the golden hour light of sunrise and sunset, while constantly exploring in between to find the next great location. The goal I aspire for with my photography is to capture images that inspire individuals to get off the couch, go outside, and live life by exploring nature.
