About Courtney Gushue
I travel. I run. I laugh. I listen to music. I cook. I take photos. I read. I draw. I learn.
I'm a nerd at heart, and I'm always trying to do something new. Often times, that something new doesn't stick, but it's fun. When I have a good experience, I try to share it with others. One of the best things I ever did, though I love my family dearly, was move across the country solo, as it taught me a whole lot about myself. If you can't swing that, I urge you to travel alone, at least once. I said a long time ago, "Find something that makes you say 'Life is good,' and never, ever lose sight of that." I don't know where I came up with that one, but I've held on to it since.
Running is my outlet and my means of exploration. I run to let my brain unwind at the end of the day, or sometimes to clear it before I start my day. I run to explore a new city, and I always bring at least one pair of running shoes with me on vacation ('cause you can never predict the weather). Many pieces of my photo collection come from shoots on the run, things I have happened upon while running past and are too good to pass up!
I've never been formally trained to photograph, but I've found myself shooting more and more photos lately. There's something satisfying about seeing a view and capturing it, and further, being able to share that view with others. Having a student-loan budget, I don't have nice camera equipment, but I do my best with what I've got!
