"This lens is joy."
I was somewhere that I had been many, many times before, but through the macro lens, it was like being in a completely different world. It brought me that same excitement, that same giddiness, and joy that I felt when I was in a crazy place, far off the grid.”
“I used to think nature was really just the far away places that were untouched, hard to get to, high commitment. I realized there's really amazing stuff that nature does everywhere, you just have to prioritize wanting to see it and stop.”
“It takes a lot of time. You have to be slower and that's hard in this culture to slow down like that. I'm not great at slowing down, but this is what macro photography has given me: a reason to slow down every day.”
“I feel like a kid again, every single time. When I get out there and I'm crawling around in the grass, I just can't get enough of it. It's just this overwhelming sense of excitement and joy that I don't find in anything else.”
This lens is my love story.

This lens embraces the weird.
This is Gourdon, and he's just one of the many funny faces captured by my faithful camera. I treasure these moments that allow me to be creative and let the weirdness out to play.
This lens captures what we cannot see.
I love taking long exposures because my lens can capture more than I can't see with my bare eyes. It collects all the light that's there and creates this beautiful image.
