You Say I Am Orphan; I Say I Am Loved!

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 […]

Greg Pai On “The Voice of the Heart” and photographingGOD Podcast

Journey with photographingGOD founder and photographer, Greg Pai as he leads you through the perils of “the voice of the world” that distances us from our natural existence and connection with God as it defines, informs, and motivates us. Greg suggests an alternative voice that speaks from our hearts. And it was this very voice that inspired Greg to launch photographingGOD.

My Public Profession

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 Barnes Phone Home… Not!

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.

Are You Going To Get In The Way Of Yourself This Year?

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. Not because I missed the photo op; but because I questioned my own sense of appreciation particularly […]

May New Acquaintances Be Always Remembered! (Ode to Auld Lang Syne)

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.

Up Close and Personal With Flowers

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 […]

When Time Flies Still

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 […]

Don’t Believe The Hype – Beauty Is Not In The Eyes Of The Beholder…

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.

“I Do!”

Nothing says I do like “I do!” This picture captured the exact moment and what a moment it was indeed.

Saving For A Rainy Day

“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.”

No Such Thing As Coincidence

Coincidence or God’s timing? Let’s ask the more pertinent question first. What is a coincidence?

Photographing People & Life

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.

Closeups Of God’s Creation

Photos that close in on the most finite details of creation or those that are emotionally inspiring because they connect with the heart are what I call “Close Ups” of God.
