India.


I had quite an adventure trip to India with my friend and collaborator, Saul David Raye, last November. On tour with a group of Yogis visiting various sacred sites and temples and learning the ways of India. Here are a few visual impressions from that trip.

There will be more to come. I shot so much there. Take a look and check back again :)

Western Landscape

 

I really discovered the amazing beauty of the Western US landscape when I took my music for yoga on the road, driving from Boulder through Utah, over to San Francisco, then all over the Southwest.

 

Sometimes I would come into a new view and have my breath really taken away by the combination of the scene and the right moment of light.

 

Quoting my own song: "If you want to make a nice photograph, look for the beautiful light." That's my philosophy for shooting. In the right light, almost anything is beautiful.
