Very much like this site that will constantly be under construction, so am I.....
Each day I am reminded that something
completely new and exciting can be found
if my eyes and heart is open to it. Each day
presents itself with yet another opportunity
to discover something new about the world
I live in and maybe a thing or two about
myself as well in the process. There are
"moments" in all our lives that release us
from the gravitational pull which keeps our
spirits grounded and then
there are those that allow us to fly as if we
born to do so. It's here we find grace and its
here we brace ourselves for the inevitable
clumsy landing back to the inevitable and
away from the "moment" and all it's magic.
A truly great moment in life can almost sad to
me. While It allows us to get a glimps of what
perfection and true bliss really is. We also
know it simply can not last. We have all felt it;
a moment where you wish with all your heart
that you could just squeeze ahold of a little
harder and longer so it does not simply
disapate into this air like everythign in the
natural World ultimately does. There are
millions of these moments and all of them are
unique to each person. Think how you felt in
that special relationship, and the moment
you realized you have finally connected on a
deeper level with that other person. You are
literally walking on air. How long before you
realize this level of"perfection" has an absolute
shelf life and it simply can not sustain itself
over a life time. That is when dispair collides
with utter exhuberance. And the very someting
that propelled you into the clouds making you
the luckiest person on Earth, is the very same
thing that brings us all back spiraling down the
full weightof our existance with a thud.
The key is to start by finding your moment of
perfection in your own life, no matter how
fleeting it is and honor it for as long as it takes
you to get your to the next and hopefully the one after that.
Once this momentum builds its easier to bridge them together. Knowing the
next one is out there somewhere to be found can help us ironically loosen
our death grip on the one we have and keeping it alive longer and forge
in our hearts deeper. Photography and art
helps me and others manage the mortality of those times by adding visual
reminder to send us back to a time of magic, wonder and dreams.
Here, the things in life that inspire me & my clients are portrayed through a
lens, a paint bush or a pen and paper. To be an artist or photographer, it is
always my goal to know you under the protective surface used in day to day
survival . I want to understand what drives you in life and what specific things
make you feel most alive and passionate so I can deliver a product that
resonated with you on a esthetic and deeply personal level. This is why I
open up myself here as well, especially in my blogs so you can get a personal
reference point on who I am and who you will share your life, dreams and
hopes with. I whole heartedly believe this type of business is a two way street.
I am always open to any and all questions and hide nothing. Ultimately I need
to earn the trust in you to allow me into that part of your life in this way and
honoring that trust is paramount.
It's too easy to get lost in the blinding pace of life. How many of us
wonder where all the time has gone? It's my goal to artistically
freeze a specific a single or hopefuly several important moments in your
life and suspended time to preserve its life as you remember it. Each of
these special moments captured leaves an imprint on the soul long after
the physical one has disappeared.
Whether it be a 1000 pound Alaskan Brown Bear, or a little lady bug
working on a single speck of pollen, the curve of a woman’s hips or the
freedom in a child’s gaze; art gives us all a deeper look at who we are
and helps us slow down just enough to grant us the perspective that
allows us to feel alive. It creates a pause; one that will hopefully
point us back on our own path.
Until next time, keep creating your next new footprints for
your soul and those fortunate enough to be around you. And
never ever stop honoring those brief moments in time that
make you feel perfection in an otherwise imperfect World.
