About the artist: My dad gave me my first camera when I was eight. I lay down on the trunk of a tree and I pulled up. It was the start of a love affair with photography that continues to this day.
Our northern regions of Nevada are full of beauty. Although I have my favorite places, I also like to go out and explore. Inevitably, I find something new to enjoy.
For years I was addicted to social media. When I looked through my lens, I always thought about posting pictures. Life experiences have become photo ops. I was not there to enjoy what I was participating in.
Almost two years ago now, I stopped being active on all social media sites, from Facebook to Twitter. It was one of the best decisions I’ve made.
When I drive around our area, I always remind myself not to be stuck behind my camera, but rather to just enjoy my day’s trip. When I travel, I follow my intuition. If I hear “turn left”, I turn left. The things I see bring surprise, joy and admiration. Often I drive in areas where I have been many times before. Inevitably, I see interesting things that I had never noticed before.
From my heart to yours, Mark Gillard
