F/8 and Be There
This motto was coined by photojournalists, who knew you had to get where you were going, and you had to be ready when you got there.
The no-nonsense dictum sums up the challange for all photographers: Because the photograph springs from you, you have to be prepared in both the literal and existential sense — you need to recognize what is happening right in front of you, and you have to make the shot.

The Light Within
I've had a camera in my hand since I was 8 years old. Even then, I was fascinated with the idea that I could capture a moment in time; I could freeze forever something that would never happen again. Taking pictures was almost magical. I still feel that way.
These days I choose serene subjects and walks in nature as a way to escape turmoil and stress — to find inner peace and the light within.
