In his book, Stillness Speaks, Eckhart Tolle states, “The division of life into past, present, and future is mind-made and ultimately illusory. The only thing that is real, the only thing there ever is, is the Now.”

For me, the experience of photography is an immersion into the present moment. The past is but a memory and the future has yet to unfold. Like a mirror, the photograph reflects a unique point in time – never to be the same. I am inspired by the aliveness of light, the vibrancy of color, and the beauty of nature. By journeying below the surface, I try to find the essence within each image. That’s where we can meet.

In addition to my Fine Art photography, I am also an Exclusive Stock Photographer with Getty Images and iStockphoto.
