"For me, photography is the opportunity to document not only a moment but a feeling. I believe photography can transport us emotionally, enrich us spiritually, and change us personally. That's why I treasure being able to document stories through my lens."

"I'm happiest when surrounded by nature and I express that with photography. Naturally, I'm grateful when I connect with a wider audience. But the greatest joy is simply being in wild places at their finest hours."

"My first apartment in Minneapolis was a large run-down duplex with slanting floors. Right after I moved in, I set up a makeshift darkroom in my bathroom and started developing my black and white film. I heard some odd noises and my dog was freaking out, so as soon as I could I walked out into the dark house. Two bats were swooping through my new living room! I wish I'd gotten a photo of that."
Jill Hyland's love of photos started as a young child, she was fascinated with photo albums and family photos on the walls. When she got her first point and shoot as a birthday present at age 12, she ran outside to shoot the sunset (and is still doing that to this day). A road trip across the US at age 20 turned photography into a true passion and a never-ending quest to capture a moment, a mood, and a feeling. Jill's work has been published in magazines, newspapers, on album covers and on several book covers. She lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota and loves photographing the people and the weather there.www.jillhylandphotography.com
