Alexis Hagestad was born and raised in the delightful valley of Missoula, Montana where as a child; she thought she lived on half of the earth because the sky was so large. Her heart truly lies in the untouched prairie lands and the snowy peaks of mountains. She frequently finds herself dreaming of the western landscape, a landscape she has spent many years traveling through, trying to photograph its beauty. Alexis’ love for travel ventured her east to study photography at Savannah College of Art and Design where she graduated in the spring of 2016.
She recently received certification in wildland firefighting where she has been photographing fire life around western Montana. When she is not battling fires or trekking through Glacier National Park, you might find her on some abandoned dirt road in Big Sky country with her pal Sharky, the admiral blue Pontiac Vibe.
