"I believe with every fiber in my being that honoring and
appreciating nature is an important ingredient in the recipe that
could one day bring peace. It undeniably gives me inner peace."
~ Betsy Seeton
"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it."
I love trying to capture what people seldom notice, much less, see. And while color and lighting play important roles, in my opinion it’s that illusive talent (sometimes luck) of capturing the ‘soul of the scene’ that makes a photo truly special. I have much to learn; oodles and oodles to learn. Fortunately, it’s the journey behind the lens that’s so extraordinarily intoxicating, that makes learning an adventure all its own. Photography is a passion with endless rewards. The best compliment I can ever receive is when someone lets me know a photo has moved them or inspired them.
The book, and my macro photography was/is a labor of love. I'm sure there are better technical shots of bees out there, but it's my hope that if you spend time browsing through my bee portfolio you'll come away with a different feeling about bees. I want you to experience their world in all its splendor. If I could take you on a photo shoot with me, I promise that you would leave our outing feeling less fearful around bees, (unless you're allergic to bee stings) and even leave having gained a sense of awe about them.
The sound of bee's buzz is actually music to me! It's a healing melody when I hear a swarm of bees or am near flowers covered by bees in search of nectar.
