Waterfall – by Eric
Eric: My name is Eric and I’m from Waukesha, Wisconsin. I am 17 years old and I have learned that photography is my favorite activity. It allows me to see new things and be able to sit back and enjoy my surroundings and not worry about things going on in my life. After being in photography, I would like to buy my own camera when I leave Northwest Passage.
Micah: My name is Micah B. I am 14 and I live in Hudson, Wisconsin. I chose this picture because it captures nature in action. Photography helps me because it gets me away from stresses in my life. It also gives me a chance to see stuff that I would not get to see on a regular basis. Photography has taught me many different skills, like patience.
Fabian: My name is Fabian R. I was born in Chicago but I live in Minneapolis. I came to Northwest Passage mainly because my behaviors were going to affect my future in a negative way. Photography has helped me to see stuff with a different point of view. It has also got me interested in nature which is new to me. I hope to continue to use the skills I have learned in photography to steer me in a positive path the rest of my life.
Austin: My name is Austin P and I am 15 years old, and I am from Anoka County. I came to Northwest Passage to work on my anger and drug problems. Photography has helped me to learn many skills needed to get my life going in a positive direction. Being out in nature and the thrill of capturing the perfect image takes my mind off my problems. I am grateful for this experience.
