"What's so great about nature and the outside world is that you don't have to look for, or even find, a purpose in it. In this fast-paced digital world where everything is connected to an ulterior motive, I personally believe that the greatest resource is to go out and see the world without an objective. The beauty of life around you and how they are in relationship with each other is already material enough for an inspiration for creativity... it's right in front of you! To understand the components of image making it's paramount to study how things are the way they are in their authentic beauty. In the end, it’s a simple matter of looking at things with fresh eyes."
