About Jim Feldkamp
For as long as he can remember, Jim Feldkamp has always had a camera in his hand. His first camera, given by his grandfather, was a basic automatic point-and-shoot. His family was just so happy and willing to pose for him; striking poses that make the photos look candid, willingly posing for birthday photos, and striking every other imaginable pose! His family’s support is what encouraged Jim Feldkamp to pursue photography.
Trips to East Coast National Parks
Summers at the Feldkamp household meant planning trips to national parks in the East Coast. Jim would always be grateful for these trips because not only did they make the family closer but they also developed in Jim Feldkamp a love for nature photography. From Acadia to Biscayne, Jim remembers these family outings with fondness.
Photographing the Atlantic coast from Acadia National Park to the mangroves of Biscayne National Park, and the wetlands of Everglades National Park is truly an experience that made Jim’s childhood memorable.
Now the West Coast
In keeping with tradition, Jim Feldkamp has taken it upon himself to give his children the same experiences he had growing up. He wants them to fall in love with nature as much as he did and so, trips to national parks have also become a tradition in his own family. This time though, their trips would take them to national parks on the West Coast.
So far, he has taken his family to Yosemite National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Redwood National Park, and the Grand Canyon National Park.
This summer, they’re planning a trip to Utah’s Mighty 5 national parks.
