Photography: Mendocino to India and around the World
I started taking photographs on the set of my brother's film, "Monsoon". He handed me his camera and said, "Start shooting," so I did.
I had no idea that it would become something I would love so much. Once I started clicking away, I couldn't stop. We shot in India around my father's house in Mumbai. India is so colorful and mysterious, it is easy to get caught up in it while taking photos. Everything is art once you start seeing thru the lens of the camera.
I've been back to India several times since and traveled to many more places. I also shoot photos here in and around Mendocino.
We are privileged to live on such a beautiful Planet that gives to us endlessly and consistently. I just shoot what inspires me...people and places.
I hope you enjoy.
