Photography / Multimedia Production
Specializing in creating inspirational visual stories about diverse people, new frontiers of holistic health & human potential in action and progress of our world towards greater ideals, my approach is to really listen to my clients needs, and both “see” and “hear” the story that is waiting to be told. Together we decide whether photography, video or a combination is the best visual communication tool and then proceed to create a storyline, photos and/or video to tell this story. This may be photos alone and/or combining them with words, video and other multimedia tools to engage people’s hearts, educate, awaken, inspire, create beauty and motivate people to action.
To me, the diversity of “people” is an expression of the Magnificence of the Divine. Visually documenting people and their stories is like a prayer for me. From this place, I find that I and my camera are welcomed into people’s lives. This opens the door for creating authentic images that make an emotional connection & bring others intimately into each person’s story.
Having been in a wide range of global, community, home, healthcare and healing settings, I bring cultural awareness, health/wellness industry knowledge and innate sensitivity to creating a sense of trust and openness for my subjects. I also bring creativity, vision and service to deliver an exceptional experience and outcome for my clients.
I am drawn to focus on successes, transformation, triumphs and that which awakens and inspires in concrete ways that others can apply. I am also compelled to broaden awareness of what health & potential means and raise visibility for health and social change leaders to bring attention to that which is progressing to create more progress. I am passionate about juxtaposing diverse stories of goodness in action, peoples and approaches to healing, awakening and change making.
I honor and celebrate diversity in all its’ forms.
Consulting / Coaching
“Be what you are. This is the first step toward becoming better than you are.”
Julius Charles Hare
Parallel to my storytelling, the underlying purpose of my consulting/coaching is to awaken greater health and potential for others and better our world in tangible ways. My approach is to either deliver an existing Luminous Concepts program or create a custom program/development plan which includes coaching and/or training to develop practical skills for individuals and/or groups to reach higher levels of well being and performance themselves, and better position them to elevate the health and potential of those they serve —emphasis on coaching as I hold the space for innate wisdom of individuals / groups to be revealed, and co-create goals and accountability to transfer the wisdom into action.
Based on the belief that we are physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual beings and that we reach higher levels of well being and excellence when we are nourishing these diverse aspects of ourselves, I follow a holistic approach to individual and group development that addresses our “holistic” nature; applying spiritual concepts in practical ways; developing skills and utilizing pragmatic tools to empower higher levels of performance, consciousness, health and success.
The Starting point is to identify where you are and where you want to be and then identify the best program and/or create a customized development plan to support you to achieve your priority goals. This may include creating a development strategy, providing individual or team coaching sessions, customizing training program(s) that develop new knowledge, skills and habits; providing support as new skills are being developed and maintaining accountability to celebrate, measure, monitor and adjust progress towards your highest vision.
