Where are you from?
Brooklyn, NY, USA.
Why did you want to become a Photographer?
I never wanted to become a photographer, it just happened. I started using DSLR in 2008 and 2012 participated in my first photography tour of American Southwest. I was able to visit a lot of interesting places and photograph some unique moments in time. One trip followed another I began doing multiple trips per year to satisfy my thirst for capturing amazing moments in Mother Nature. The rest is history 🙂
Why did you choose this particular shot to be your favorite photograph?
This image is part of series and was captured in Geyzir, Iceland in February 2013. After capturing all sorts of amazing Northern Lights shots with mountains & other objects such as erupting geyser I decided to try something different. I pointed my camera straight up into the sky and looked for the eye of the solar storm. I decided to stop at one section of the sky and started taking one shot after another hoping to capture the light show of a lifetime. What I was able to capture was a series of images showing the resurrection, rise and aftermath of mythical Phoenix. Not only was I at the right place at the right time I was also continuously pointing to the right place in the sky. Uniqueness of this image and impossibility of replicating it makes it my currently favorite photograph.
