Stop a Moment and Hold it Forever

Q.  What’s the best thing about photography?

A. “You can stop a moment of time and hold it forever”  –  Vincent Versace

I was sitting on a rock in a stream hoping to photograph a bear, when all of a sudden it happened! A Spirit Bear came out of the woods, came to the stream, and came closer and closer.  I got my wish but now it was getting a little scary! I just kept shooting, hoping for the best. It was a moment in time I hold forever. This is why a still photograph means far more to me than a video. I can stare into this image and all the emotions of that very moment come back to life.

My Final Major Book! In celebration of the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast region of BC, its ancient rainforests, canyon-grasslands, Chilcotin Ark, and central coastline, I am embarking on my largest and most significant book to date. During my research, writing and image selection, I will post blog images and the stories behind them.
