The magic of the desert
is hard to define

The world has never felt so big; the sky has never seemed so infinite.

The desert has always been a deeply spiritual place. My first experience felt as if my soul was literally turned on for the first time. I was hooked.

It has everything that makes a photographer and explorer heart beat faster!

Discover your distinctive voice, cultivate mindful awareness and inspire creative growth with photography.

Mindfulness in Photography

Rather than focusing only on the technical aspects of capturing a great photograph, this method investigates photography as a mindfulness practice.

Mindfulness means being aware of your thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment on a moment-to-moment basis. It means paying attention to what is, rather than getting lost in our thoughts about the future or the past. Photography can be an effective way of improving mood and appreciation of everyday life
