Photography is a way to capture the beauty around us, a way to freeze memories in time, and share them with the world.
I started doing photography at the young age of 15, after my parents got me a generic camera for Christmas. From there, it was history—I taught myself to edit photos and was able to show the world what -I- see when I look around, as well as gave me the ability to express emotions I didn't know how else to (refer to "Trapped Inside" for an example).
Photography saved my life and continues to be one of the reasons I get out of bed in the morning—so I can continue this beautiful, creative journey.
spinal cord injury disrupted my life. A way of coping beyond a long recovery
was introduced to me by Sheena, through photography, and it’s become an outlet that’s
helped put me on a constructive path to regaining a once lost livelihood.
previous experience in editing that included creating company logos, I quickly
learned Gurushots is meant to challenge and reward artists. It was only a short
time before I landed my own photos in exhibits and magazines.

Robert began Fedex in 2018; Sheena began Fedex in 2019. Sheena stocked Robert's truck for the day and throughout this seemingly small interaction, we both found a lifetime friend. One of those rare, once in a lifetime bonds.
Robert opened his heart to me when I had no hope for life; my best friend had committed suicide. Daily, he lifted my spirits and encouraged me on Gurushots. He began showing me a few of his pictures, and I quickly prompted him to sign up on Gurushots, a leading publication for Exhibitions and Magazines online.
From there it was history; we started to have numerous great achievements, and we wanted to showcase our Exhibitions and Publications, and also add our favorite photos for anyone to view, buy, or simply support us.
Through our individual struggles, we have both supported each other to the fullest.
Together, we have been featured in over 150(+) international exhibitions and over 75+ publications in magazines through Gurushots, a leading app for photographers to sign up for exhibitions and magazines world-wide.
