“You don’t take a photograph. You ask quietly to borrow it” – Unknown
As a passionate photographer, I know that when I capture an image of a beautiful landscape, the ocean or any other beautiful scene, that I am borrowing it from that precise moment in time, and capturing it for all of eternity.
In the act of capturing an image for others to enjoy I believe that balance needs to be achieved via another act that provides equilibrium, and that is giving something back.
In this regard, I have always been driven by philanthropy and supporting great causes. I know it is only a small gesture, but I believe it goes a long way to restoring the balance for all of the photographs I capture for my audience.
In the past, I have donated to Life flight and I don’t print every year to raise funds for breast cancer and prostate cancer.
