What Inspires You?
“I am inspired by all of nature, which I see as a living entity, and all my work is born out of a sense of wonder of being part of it all. My goal is presenting sublime landscape experiences drawn from this miraculous planet and I hope to convey some measure of my transcendent experiences to those who view my images. This image of the Uyuni salt flats in Bolivia is part of my Constellation series and a perfect example of a concept I’m constantly exploring—the meeting of heaven and earth.”
What enables you?
“I rely on my Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR camera to create exceptional images under the most challenging conditions. Its very clean high ISO performance is outstanding—it’s a level of excellence that lets me capture a quality of light that has only recently been explored. The quality of the files at ISO 1600, ISO 3200 and even ISO 6400 is unsurpassed and the Canon EOS 5D Mark III is solid, durable, and reliable, with excellent handling and ergonomics. It lets me get into the flow and stay in the flow. That means an increased success rate, which is what being a pro is all about.”
