I remember the first time I started to see the world through a camera lens. How it changed everything. Suddenly I became an explorer. The dancing grass by the lake became a hidden forrest where frogs hide. The symphony from the trees introduced me to species that I never had encountered before. Since then I have tried to capture moments and stories from the wild. Few things make me as happy as exploring the world with my camera and to try to spread aware-ness about our environment with my work.
