Ray of Light

Hiking through the Mojave Desert, you might be surprised to find lava tubes running underneath and throughout the scorching desert sands. At certain times of the day and certain times of the year, the light can shine into these ancient tubes in such a way that it appears like a laser beam cutting down through the soil. The shadows of the tube constantly fight against the incoming light creating a magical scene of light vs dark.

Growing up, I was one of those people who really disliked going out into nature. I felt comfort in the city and had no passion to ever leave. When I moved across the country, I was exposed to what nature truly is and it completely changed my entire life. A camera somehow found its way into my hand and I decided that I wanted to start showing the world some truly amazing places in hopes of preventing anyone from ever being like my younger and very naive self. As I began to form a style, two painters were actually my inspiration, Bierstadt and Kinkade. Their ability to portray the dance of light and shadows inspired me to create images of a once hidden world to me and expose it from beyond the shadows.
