My name is Jared Ropelato and I was born and raised in Boise, Idaho. The Pacific Northwest has been my home for my entire life. From the Ocean to the Rockies, from Montana to California, and just about every place in between; there's a rhythm to the West that seems to be similar to one in my own chest. There's always been a spirit of adventure in the West, and my goal is to tap into that rhythm and that spirit with my camera, and to let others experience it as I have.
