Jeff Lundstrom Photography

I started photography to fill a void. I was 35 years old and I realized that I couldn’t play sports anymore. Family, career, and my aging body just wouldn’t allow it. This was kind of a big deal for me. See, I started playing sports when I was just 3 years old. From my youth through my early 20’s, my life was consumed by travel hockey and college lacrosse. It’s all I did. It was my only creative outlet.

So, there I was. A middle aged man with your typical corporate career on the cube farm. Bored out of my mind on the weekends. Fortunately, I like to cook so that helped a little, but it wasn’t enough. I tried the guitar, but I just wasn’t very good. Then fate stepped in. I was placed on an out of town assignment for work and ended up racking up a bunch of travel miles. That’s when my life changed and I bought my first DSLR. It was June 2006.

Back then, I was working during the week in New York City and living back home in Litchfield, CT on the weekends. Somewhere between strolling the streets of Manhattan and exploring the rolling hills of the countryside, a photographer was born. I quickly developed a love of architecture, light, and landscapes.

As luck (or fate) would have it, I stumbled into wedding photography by accident. Wanting to learn about different photographic genres, I connected with a local wedding photographer who asked if I wanted to second shoot for him one day. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting much.

Turns out – I was hooked! I loved the energy, the excitement, and the commotion. I loved being in the middle of all the action, the challenge of thinking on my feet, and jockeying for an angle. I loved that amongst all that stress and chaos, I was as calm as could be. 100% focused on capturing what was unfolding in front of me. Creating art amidst chaos. Art that would be cherished forever. It was (and still is) exhilarating.
