MT Herzog & Marie Balustrade

I’ve been asked several times what my specialization in photography is, and I never have an answer. Photography is part and parcel of who I am, not a skill learned for some certification or artistic claim. It is as human to me as it is spiritual, full of imperfections in pursuit of equilibrium.

If you seek technical perfection in photographs, you have come to the wrong place. I harbor an utter disdain to center anything in the photograph other than my own emotions, and those are to be conveyed and felt, not seen. My work, if you can even call it that, is not art, will never be art, nor do I even insist on creativity. FrogDiva Photography is a dichotomy of selfishness and selflessness that seek depth in interwoven light and shadows. There is no official genre in photography called soul photography, but there should be because it would answer so many questions. I do not attempt to define the soul of photography, but to practice photography of the soul. It is all about the essence of being, healing, and surviving. The foundation of FrogDiva Photography, therefore is the pursuit of Infinity and beyond. 

Most of the sections of this website are self-explanatory by their titles, except "Broken Wings". This particular collection of photographs are all part of a personal journey through depression, my battle through pain, grief and darkness. 

My current preferred camera is the Fuji X T10, but was enamoured with Canon for over a decade and raised exclusively on Nikon. I will not deny that I belong the the school of thought that finds iPhonography and Androidgraphy perfectly acceptable, especially when I have to travel light or simply forgot the camera.
