Featured Photographer: Robin Savage

I am a single mom of two teenage sons. I live in San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge is always a favorite place for me to walk on or just look at. When it's foggy, it's my favorite time to take photos. I find the pictures always come out more interesting and you can create a story without words. I took this picture with my CanonRebel T3.

A year ago I went to a life healing center courtesy of the Dr.Drew's Lifechangers show. I had a lot of childhood trauma that I never knew how to heal from and PTSD carried me throughout my life. When I came out of the Life Healing Center, I felt like a new person but to be honest I felt I still needed something in my life to complete my healing process. A friend of mine whom I met on Facebook is a photographer and she convinced me to buy a camera. The day I started to take pictures-it was healing in a way therapy could never do for me. Photography teaches us all to live in the moment and the more we take pictures, we realize the present is more important than the past or the future. I never leave home without my camera. My sons are even into photography and I feel it's a great tool for them because I feel they will always respect our environment and to always live in the present.

  1. Living in the present is very important, Robin. Often times, we get carried away dreaming about the future or constantly let ourselves be weighed down by the past. I'm happy for you that you are able to find peace in the moment.
