These captured moments are some of my most powerful memories. I'm a lover of the incredible vibrance and diversity that can be found in the world around us, and have been blessed to travel to many of these places. Whether traveling by myself or with friends, I make every effort to create images that showcase not only the beauty of the place that I've reached, but the person who has reached it. Some of these images serve as a reminder to me of how small we humans truly are. Others bring me a sense of peace. All of them, however, bring to mind the incredible state of mind that I had as I stood in these beautiful spots and pushed my shutter button.
