I originally created the first rendition of the schmidtshow as a means to share photos and thoughts with family and friends while I was living in Ireland. That was back in 2011, and the schmidtshow has changed a little bit.
The whole goal of the schmidtshow remains the same; share photos and thoughts with friends and family on a pleasing platform. Back in 2011 I had grown tired of sharing photos on facebook. Pictures could only be presented in a certain way, you could write up a quick caption for each photo. But sometimes I want to tell a story about my photos and/or with my photos. So since then, I have been trying to create a space where I can do just that.
I am by no means ‘good’ at managing this website. I have tried to learn to code HTML/CSS several times and have become too busy to keep up with it. I have gone through a number of different themes, each getting closer to the idea I have in my head. I am still striving for the ideal site.
This site is about the adventures I have. Sometimes it’s about day trips skiing around Anchorage, and other times it;s about short trips biking or packrafting or traveling. Not to toot my own horn, but I think that I have been getting better and photography and I am pleased to share that here.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy.
