Maya is also and avid traveler and scuba diver. She draws inspiration for her photography from her ever fascinating experiences in the world.
My work is diverse and covers many interests that are close to my heart. Whether it's a photo of a tranquil river, or a dynamic stage performance, my goal is always to tell the story of the moment. One of the reasons that I love photography is that it is the only medium where one can literally stop time. To be transported by a photograph is a mysterious experience and one that I hope to elicit in my viewers.
