“Photography is my passion and I fell in love with it when I received my first camera in middle school,” said Goldney. “I grew up in the desert and felt instantly drawn to photographing the vibrant desert sunsets and landscapes. It wasn’t until my second year of college that I realized I wanted to pursue photography full time. I began with landscape photography and I love spending time out hunting for exciting, new locations. I moved to Wisconsin several years ago from Arizona and enjoy capturing the changing seasons.”

Goldney’s display is a collection of landscape photographs, featuring photos of the changing seasons in Door County, Monument Valley in winter and the vibrant colors of desert Southwest sunsets.
