Maria Puma Perme  / City Buddha

Maria 'Puma' Perme
Movement Facilitator Energy/Bodywork

Photography has always been a part of my life.  From my mid teens and hours spent in the woods and at the water's edge, my photographic style has been largely influenced by my life experiences and deep commune with the natural world, travel, music, and somatic movement and expression.  Currently my palette and subjects to focus on are nature, live music and portrait.  These outlets combine my passion for the natural world, curiosity, connection,  excitement and ultimately inner peace and a connection to the Divine.
The driving force and inspiration behind my photography comes from God/Source and is simply a passion for the natural world and an innate curiosity of wanting to connect with others through capturing moments of the Divine through the lens. No other activity brings me the peace, satisfaction and diversity of experiences as photography does.  I consider myself a visual storyteller.  My images are real, authentic, and a direct representation of present reality at the time of the photo's shooting, with very little editing involved.
My hope is that these images, created from the heart, will touch and inspire others to appreciate, and care for others and the world around them.
