A New Podcast Interview With Operation Reset

Sunday, September 1st, 2013 at 11:04am - Personal

 Hi friends!  Recently I shared a conversation with Jacob Nawrocki of Operation Reset, a podcast to help people find a reset in their lives.  This has been my most personal and vulnerable interview thus far, and I am so happy to share it with you.  We talked about all kinds of things from photography and timelapse, to nature and energy, to Oneness and spirituality.  So perhaps make a cup of tea and sit down with some candles, and I hope you enjoy.


Oneness Mission

Sunday, September 1st, 2013 at 9:57am - Personal

 Hi friends!  I´m so excited to share with you an all new website that is a collaboration between my dear friend Kirsi Ranto and I.  I have always known that my mission in life is to spread love, and when Kirsi and I met, we realized that we both share the same mission.  I believe art is a very powerful way to raise consciousness, and open our hearts to unconditional love.  That´s how Oneness Mission was born.

Oneness Mission is a global movement sharing beauty, love and light through visuals, music and writings. It is created by myself as a visual artist and musician, and Kirsi as a music artist, writer and founder of the Be The Light You Are method, a tool of the heart for self discovery and awareness.

Our mission is based on our heart’s desire to be one with Love, to be of service, and to live true our highest visions of ourselves. We started to work together during the spring of 2012 and realized immediately that we shared the same mission. So we started our cooperation by creating two films: The Essence of Kirsi Ranto Deepthi and An Evening with Deepthi.

Please join us on Facebook, visit in our Oneness Mission - website and share in this journey with us.

I really hope you’ll love it as much we have loved this journey while making our dream come true with this mission!

Featured on Crossing the 180 ~ A Filmmakers Podcast

Friday, May 25th, 2012 at 9:40am - Personal

 Recently I had the incredible opportunity to be interviewed by Ron Dawson for his Crossing The 180 podcast.  Its a great podcast dedicated to getting to know film makers in a deeper way, beyond all the gear and tech talk (although there´s plenty of that too).  I´ve actually been listening to Ron´s podcasts since he started his first one, F Stop Beyond.  I´ve secretly always wanted to be on one of his podcasts, so when Ron got in touch recently wanting to interview me, I was thrilled.

We talk about all kinds of stuff from what got me started in photography, to how I transitioned into film making, and what led me to create my recent viral video "Yosemite Range of Light".  I actually hired Ron to create some promo videos for me a couple of years ago, I love his work.  I´ve included below both my recent "Yosemite Range of Light" video which inpsired Ron to have me on the show, and the videos we produced together a few years back for my business.

So grab your favorite beverage, and either sit back and relax, or get some work done while you listen, but I hope you enjoy the stories.



 Here´s "Yosemite Range of Light", my recent timelapse piece which has gone viral and reached over a million people.


 This is the main promo piece Ron helped me create for my business.



Ron also helped me make the 2 following videos to help promote specialized aspects of my business.

Sarah Esther Witherington ~ Portrait Photography

Thursday, November 18th, 2010 at 4:25pm - Personal

 While I was in Atlanta shooting a wedding with my friend Sarah, we stopped to get some portraits for her upcoming new website.  It was really fun, and a great experience for me.  I´m not usually very comfortable shooting portraits of individuals, because it requires me to interact with them more and help give direction.  I tend to stay back and allow the moments to happen, and I love the interactions between people; probably why I love shooting couples in love so much.  Well Sarah was great, and since she´s a photographer herself, made it a lot easier for me since she had ideas of how she´d like to pose.  It really inspired me with new ideas.  Thanks Sarah!!  Hope you love the images :)

I love to travel.  I just got back from an amazing trip down south, and as usual I have tons of photos I´d love to share.  I´ll be posting a few blog updates as I go through everything over the next few days and weeks, but I wanted to start with some travel photos from New Orleans. 

The last 2 years, Pictage has held their annual Partner Conference in NOLA, and it has come to be a highlight of my year.  So many great friends coming together in a  city with such character is always a blast!!


There´ll be quite a few blog posts coming over the next few days and weeks as I get caught up on my weddings from this fall and post more pics from my trip, so I hope you´ll check back soon!  And as always, I hope you´re having a wonderful day :)
