About the Book
Enjoy inspirational quotes from great leaders? Love photography? You can have the best of both worlds in this lovely gift book designed to be a "Thank You" for the leaders and mentors in your life.
In 1992, I moved to Paris to help a software company improve the usability of their CAD/CAM package. I left an engineer; I returned a photographer. I spent weekend after weekend, wandering around Paris with my used Nikon and Ilford black and white film. A few years later, I launched my own photography business. I shoot gardens, cityscapes, and classic cars, but I am most known for my photographs of people. I love shooting people in movement - the energy of a dancer, or the quick, fearless strike of a martial artist. For me, it's capturing the face of Joy. I pursue my bliss by shooting people pursuing their bliss. I also love to combine photos with words, so I find myself automatically creating captions, whether they appear on paper or not. Now, pushing fifty, I see my life as one long leadership journey, with photography being a significant tool I use to help others understand themselves, and those around them. I hope you enjoy my work. Maureen Electa Monte
