Showing the Light

February 21, 2012


Photographing a yoga teacher

When Patrick asked me to take photographs of him doing yoga, I was excited to photograph movement again.  My career often circles back to my roots as a sports photographer .  I enjoy  the challenge of anticipating the moment and capturing the moment.  But how do you capture a yogi’s peak action?  The action is about what is happening on the inside.  The outward expressions of the poses are only half of what is happening.  Patrick ends his emails with Light instead of Best or Thanks or Sincerely.    I hope that the portraits convey the sense of peace, grace and light that Patrick shares with his students.
