One year ago, while I was in Lima Peru, I ventured to a shaman in the Peruvian Amazon to drink ayahuasca. I gave a talk in Bogota, Colombia two weeks ago on my experience — what happened. I thought it was important to articulate the details and I recorded my story. If you are interested in hearing it you can listen to that story here.

New 2016 Gallery Added

by Reid Peryam· December 23, 2016· in Content· 0 comments
Looking back at the past year I’ve enjoyed the places I’ve been, the things I’ve done and people I’ve met so much — 2016 was a wonderful year in so many ways. I’ve added a collection of my favorite and most memorable photos from the past twelve months as a gallery you can view here; it will be my intention to work hard to make 2017 as rewarding.

In September I took my camera on a roller coaster ride at Oktoberfest and the results turned out better than I was expecting. I’m a sucker for lines and contrast and these colorful roller coaster tracks scratched an obsessive compulsive itch. It was a lot of fun to shoot rapidly at such a high shutter speed (4000!) – it only lasted about two minutes but the ride felt like a high speed safari. So perhaps adding this collection to the site is more of a way of remembering the experience than the photographs. You can view the gallery here.

My favorite photos to take are of people. Ideally I can photograph someone doing something that reflects their personality. Anytime I feel like I’ve captured an aspect of someone’s style, humor, intelligence, beauty, pride, introspection, or emotion I feel really proud. I think these photographs are so much more interesting than a traditional, “pretty” photo that people generally prefer of themselves because they represent not how that person sees themselves but instead for just an instant — how another sees them. How I see them. I created a collection of portraits I have taken that make me smile and think fondly of the person whose photo I took; you can see that collection here, or from the gallery section of this site. I’ll keep adding to this as I take more photos that make me smile and think fondly of the person whose photo I took.
