Siem Reap, Cambodia, near Angkor Thom just after sunrise.
I have been taking photographs since I was 7 years old when I took my first self-portrait as a Brownie with a Brownie camera given to me by my father. That was the first of many he would give me including his beloved Leica M3 that I still own. It ignited my passion that led to my career as an award-winning filmmaker. But photography has always been the portal to my soul. It is a meditation â€“ my mind gets still, I lose sense of time and something amazing happens in my capturing a moment â€“ then I get to share it. In the past 2 years Iâ€™ve donated 3 landscapes to silent auctions in LA and NYC. All 3 have sold.
