By Greg Pai Inspired By Andrea Mani Photo Credit: Andrea Mani This is a time of the year where many feel lonely or empty. Especially those who have no family to speak of. Our hearts have to place orphans at the top of that list. What we learn from this story inspired by Andrea Mani, is that we are all orphans if we don’t connect with and depend on God. Orphans have seemingly perfected that connection and dependence as a means of […]
You know me as a photographer, writer, and Founder of photographingGOD. I also want you to know me as a devoted follower of Jesus Christ. Yes – that would make me a Christian. However, I want to live like Christ more than any label could offer. Frankly, religion and labels do more to offend me than not. Probably, because man has used them both for his own divisiveness. The current election in the United States is proof positive of that. —MORE
Maya is a 14-year-old, somewhat typical, high school student. What possibly makes her less typical is her willingness to disconnect from the digital madness that has consumed our world. Well – at least long enough to understand what she might have been missing.
Recording artist Josette credits God for her amazing talents and ability to persevere.
I went to bed last night and set my alarm for 5:00 am. What was I thinking? I was thinking I was going to get up and photograph the perfect circumstances God had planned and were forecasted for the morning sunrise over New York. Such anticipation for a great moment. Instead, I woke up closer to the sun’s transit overhead and overwhelmed by a sense of failure.

So here we are at the end of the year. Not just any year. The first New Year for photographingGOD. Though hardly a full new year. We launched on Saturday morning, September 5 at around 8am Eastern Standard Time. We had no agenda. No plan. Not even a vision.
David Leaser is using new technology and special techniques to capture God’s amazing handiwork embedded in all of nature. His images draw us closer to the detail and color we often miss for many reasons. Without a doubt, with the right intent, innovation and technology can enhance our appreciation for God’s creation. It’s one thing to use a macro lens on a camera to capture the smallest details of flora and fauna. Then there’s what David Leaser does, which is […]
A photograph has the technical ability to freeze time still. But a photograph that stirs the emotions has the God-inspired ability to freeze time while activating our mind’s senses and the pumping of our hearts. It is a stillness embodied in motion. “I like it when time is so still that I can actually observe the clock turning under it’s hands” -gp As we train our eyes to behave a bit more like a camera, we will begin to have a greater appreciation […]
Beauty is not in the eyes of the beholder (as the world would want you to think). Beauty is in the eyes of the Creator. Oh… If only we had such perfect vision.
Nothing says I do like “I do!” This picture captured the exact moment and what a moment it was indeed.
“If for only a moment, as I looked through the lens and framed this shot, I was able to dream of what it would be like to cut these wires of bondage and tension, and witness all God’s children ascend into the heavens and into His loving arms. A world free of violence, oppression, starvation, and disease.”
Coincidence or God’s timing? Let’s ask the more pertinent question first. What is a coincidence?
Capturing God’s greatest creation in the form of spontaneous or anticipated moments produces a perfect exhibition of just how magnificent a creation we are.
