As a Connecticut native, Justin Wirtalla began his visual journey photographing New England landscapes with a 4×5 film camera. He has since traveled the United States and several countries around the world, exploring the wilderness and making photographs of the natural environment.
Filmmaking was an obvious transition for Justin, combining visual imagery, storytelling, and his passion for music. He has filmed, edited, and composed music for a variety of narrative and documentary shorts. He released a full length album in 2013 and recently completed his first documentary feature, “Beer Runners.”
