The Guru

 

My name is Adam Roosa, and I live to be outdoors. When I'm not out mountain biking, rock climbing, cross country skiing or snowboarding, I am usually found behind the camera documenting those same sports.

 

I grew up in Gillette, Wyoming where during high school I took the photography classes that were offered. I was hooked. After I graduated from high school, I briefly attended the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, where I began to study mechanical engineering. During that time photography and art was simply a hobby. After 2 years I decided that engineering wasn't the path for me, and transferred to Black Hills State University where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Mass Communication with a photography emphasis. The addition of video to my skill set was simply a natural progression to my creative process, and it has allowed me to grow creatively and professionally.

 

I have photographed basically every subject, including sports, studio photography, fine art black and white, color film and digital, and weddings. My time at the engineering school gave me a very technical view of the world, and I think it helped me develop my style of photography. I have developed a style that focuses on the technical side of photography and heavily utilizes technology in creation of the photos and videos.

 

I have a passion and dedication to my work that gives me the ability to create new and unique photographs and videos.
