Call of the Mountains Photography
Often traveling to far off wilderness areas, Kuria Jorissen does most of her work at midnight to 4 am. Kuria brings the unique beauty of the night sky right to you. Using a special device called a star tracker, she is able to capture the stars as the camera is moving with the rotation of the Earth so the stars motion is stopped. Each finished composition that uses the star tracker is actually two pictures blended together so that the stars and the landscape are both sharp and in focus.
With an eye for detail and creativity, Kuria hand frames her originals with a technique her and her mom developed. Each piece is unique and created with precision and passion, using in home printing and heat mounting. Down to even the cups and coasters you can find at her booth, Kuria made sure to put in the greatest effort to make the various things her art adorns.
Traveling near and far, Kuria has shot all sorts of different National Parks and truly enjoys her time exploring Washington. From catching a partial solar eclipse at Mt St Helens to chasing the recent Comet Neowise from 2020, the list of adventures goes on and on, day or night. Kuria is extremely passionate about sharing the stories of her adventures and exhibiting the splendor of the night sky.
