The world of paranormal photography is open to all who enter with an open mind.
The world of paranormal photography is open to all who enter with an open mind. Field trip (literally!) on a crisp, cool, clear and calm evening, September 19, 2001, in field behind Peterís house.

Inexplicable circles and clouds, known as orbs, vortexes and ectoplasm, are appearing in photographs worldwide. Yes, some are photographs of dust, rain, pollen, lens flare or anything else logical minds can embrace, but not all. Taking your own photos and interacting with these energies will convince you that some are beyond explanation. Years of experiments and research have persuaded me these light forms become more plentiful for those who intentionally seek them and believe they exist. Study them and they will broaden your understanding of life itself.

An inexpensive digital camera is all youíll need to convince yourself of the existence of unseen energies all around us. Other cameras have caught glimpses of the paranormal since photography was invented, but digital cameras are especially gifted at recording light spectra that are invisible to the human eye.

There are no experts in this field, and I donít mean to present myself as an authority in either photography or the paranormal. I had the honor of knowing everything when I was seventeen. If nothing else, these light forms have taught me I know next to nothing in the total scheme of things. This is an uncomfortable feeling for most. Loss of their comfort zone must be why people can look at ten inexplicable photographs and totally dismiss all of them as fraudulent when just one is shown to be from a natural cause.
