Connor Wallace, Outdoors Photographer
Connor creates images of landscapes and the people who love them.
Connor's home base is his original home of Denver, CO. he didn't last a year in the midwest before he was driven to return to the Mile High City. The drive to return transformed into the drive to explore. Now, he roams the west and challenges himself as much as possible, whether that be trail running outside Golden or photographing the sunrise from 12,000 feet. When in the city, you'll find him exploring his other love, coffee, at a local cafe. Stop by Hooked on Colfax for a latte. You won't regret it.
what connor does
connor explores and embraces the outdoors every way that he can. he lives for rolling out of a sleeping bag and savoring that first sip of coffee while watching the sun rise. he loves the pumping in his chest as the exertion of hiking a mountain changes into the elation of reaching the summit.
connor make moments happen and photographs them when they do. he sharse those moments and tells the stories of how they came to pass. a good photo is only made better by a good story. Connor seeks out and creates those stories.
Some people think every story has already been told, but I'd say they lack imagination, awareness, or both. The outdoors community is filled with the unheard and the under-heard. These people have found their place in the outdoors, whether that be a physical location, a mental state, or a community. Too often we focus on the gear and the brands, the hardest trail and the latest achievement. Too little do we celebrate the win for the person experiencing the outdoors as therapy or the person who's special spot will never be on a top 10 list. That's why I'm happy to pursue my next project telling these stories...
