From the artist: "I am always determined about creating excellent imagery. My photography is of a particular style that I have cultivated and developed over many years. I do not feel that I function or create work like many photographers and intend to keep things this way. I do not like to rush the process of capturing great photos. I do like to make people feel at ease and do not push people to be something they are not. I want to thank you for taking the time to visit and I look forward to future collaborations with you." ~ Shiva
