“Passion needs no discipline
Discipline becomes an unmindful part
because of passion.”
“Are you someone who takes the complex and simplifies everything
Or the reverse?
Look at your images. For your image is in the images.”
The series of pictures taken over a lifetime
Or even during a brief period of time
Reveal your soul – dark, bright or in-between.
It’s okay if you are fine with baring it.”
“Honor a scene just before the light rises and its still dark.
Honor a scene when the light has just gone,
And yet sketches the earth’s misty outline,
This, my friend is the true magic hour
When nature is shaking off her slumber.
The universe is on meditative alpha
And the artists are struggling to come to terms
With their selection of the faintest brush strokes
That would render the spirited initiation of daylight
As well as its spiritual demise.”
“I asked a well-known art director to select a dozen of my best
Professional works. And then my best personal works.
She did. Over a period of 3 days.
When placed out they all looked the same.
I must be a happy man.
I have found my peace
With the commerce and the hobby,
Creating with my mind and heart.”
“I hit roadblocks. Massive one.
Then I stop the chatter in my mind.
Everything falls silent
And I stay still.
Others stay still
And the Universe stays still.
Finally, with silent gratitude
I begin my work
“During a shoot keep asking
Where’s the magic?
And then it comes
Only because the seeker relentlessly seeks.”
“What is Photography?
The arrangement of objects in a space?
The arrangement of spaces between objects? ”
“Understand the work of the great artist of the past
And live in their greatness,
Even if for a small while.
We are living their lives today.
And understanding them could
Shape the understanding of our art
Our place in the history of tomorrow.”
“A successful photograph is the result of
Modern thinking and classic knowing. ”
“Photography is simple for those who do not know
And complicated for those who do know.”
“Serendipity. The will of the cosmos.
Beautiful compositions gather,
Great lighting forms,
Subjects appear out of nowhere
To design a great picture
Because of a simple thing.
You showed up.
And so did your practice.”
“Mastering the inner eye
is a lifelong adventure of
discovery and delight.”
