Nature photographer in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin.

My wife Leda, and I, Theo, found our partnership originally to center on practicing and teaching the message of awakening through the masterwork called A Course in Miracles. We picked up a simple digital camera several years ago to bring with us to Europe, where we had been invited to teach. That little camera sparked in both of us a memory of our joy of photography. Unbeknownst to us, we had stepped through the doorway into a brand new endeavor; finding and capturing instants of light with our camera.

Soon after we discovered this amazing artists' community - deviantart. Here we have received the feedback and assistance to help us grow as photographers and to strengthen our love for the art - and for this I am very grateful. Thank you all!

To love beauty is to see light. ~Victor Hugo

“A picture is the expression of an impression. If the beautiful were not in us, how would we ever
recognize it?” ~Ernst Haas

Light glorifies everything. It transforms and ennobles the most commonplace and ordinary subjects.
The object is nothing; light is everything. ~Leonard Misonne

Some photographers take reality... and impose the domination of their own thought and spirit. Others come before reality more tenderly and a photograph to them is an instrument of love and revelation. ~Ansel Adams
