My name is Burke. Some call me Buddha. You may like to call me Triple B, or even just B. I'm an artist, writer, explorer, follower of heart, dreamer, lover of life, beauty, the light, and the dark.
I've taken a path less traveled through life, and to becoming a photographic artist. A journey of Faith, Love, Passion, Perseverance, and Purpose. My visual, and mental perspective of our world is born from a true, genuine love and gratitude for life, and this miraculous existence. I have literally cried tears of Joy, more than once, over the realization of it's beauty. I have no formal training in photography, and have used minimal/basic equipment. What you see has evolved naturally from this love of our world.
I spent many years in the rat race of life, on auto-pilot, exhausted, stressed out, hardly noticing the incredible beauty around me. My world changed, inside and out, when I chose to slow down, live in the now, and appreciate what is already here, all around us, available in every moment, and stopped pursuing the collectively prescribed idea of happiness.. ie, material gain and possession.
After a 10 year career in corporate sales & marketing, I excused myself from the race, and chose a path of minimalism, and non attachment that many would refer to as enlightenment. I followed the calling of my soul and spent years in meditation and contemplation, soul searching, connecting to and gaining an intimate understanding of our divine nature. Along this journey, I picked up a camera, and 3rd Eye Perspectives, my original Art & Philosophy of seeing beauty everywhere was born.
I observe, and find amazement & beauty all around, every day, capturing and sharing the world as I see it, as it moves me. When something moves, and speaks to my soul, that's when I reach for the camera. It's from this place of joy and awe that I create, and it's the feeling I attempt to transfer through the images.
I don't exclusively spend my time attempting to create amazing photos, and don’t approach my work as a competition. You'll rarely find me with a tripod, because I prefer to move along to the next experience of beauty and wonder. The art is spawned in the moment, and the beauty of now is what's conveyed, from simple joys, to grand landscapes.
The world is my canvas. I feel there is beauty & art to be found everywhere we look, if we can simply be present, and slow down enough to observe. I attempt to convey this perspective, and my truest hope is to share with others, a piece of the joy that our miraculous world brings to me.
