Finding Your Passion Through Adversity with Kathryn Majic
We stumbled upon a crazy video from a company called Blnk Films, and we were blown away. So much so that we had to figure out who was behind the camera on the shoot. Turns out, Kathryn Majic created this film. We posted it in our group, and it went kind of crazy. So many amazing shots, so many amazing moments.
I’m a big fan of morning walks for coffee with my family, the great outdoors, hiking, good music, sunny days, last minute trips, and apple products. I love Jesus, my wife, my son Oslo, film cameras, teaching, playing music, traveling, experiencing new cultures, my family, and helping others.
As a husband, I firmly believe in marriage and want to do my best to capture all that it means to get married and to celebrate that with you through photography.
Also, I throw more references to The Office, Seinfeld, and Star Wars into casual conversation than you thought humanly possible.

I am drawn to quiet moments. I believe this pull originated from attempts at self-preservation when I was a young boy living in neighborhoods that were difficult. At the age of 7, I built a sanctuary in my room. In this small space, I placed a red tent on my bed and surrounded it with a moat of stuffed animals that served as my protectors. My imagination soared in this beautiful, safe haven. The feeling of loneliness was replaced by the comfort of solitude. Here is where I found my quiet moments. To this day I still look for the glimpses of quiet when the world is turbulent. Creating imagery is the only way I’ve ever known how to share my story with others.
