"Shooting in the canyon gave me chills. It spoke to me on many levels. I felt a sense of peace as it reminded me of my grandma, one of the biggest inspirations in my life. We often talked about how life is full of highs and lows and how important it is to appreciate both. The sharp contrast of the cliffs and the gorge reflect just that. Standing up there, I felt like I was on top of the world and at the same time, one with the earth."
