Music and Contemplative Photography
I practice and teach a type of contemplative photography called Miksang, which means "good eye" in Tibetan. I love to photograph the ordinary magic and vividness of everyday life, particularly during my various travels. My images are available for purchase in a variety of formats. Please contact me for details and pricing.
