Be Inspired!

If you want to be inspired, if you want to be wowed, and if you want to feel a tremendous swell of energy then you’ve come to the right place. Photography has always been one of Dr. Sadati’s passions and the search for inspiration one his everyday goals. One recent event that has combined both is Red Bull’s Illume photography contest.

This competition was last held three years ago, replete with awe-inspiring pictures and stunning visuals. Right now, this year’s Illume finalists are being narrowed down for the final ten winners. That won’t happen for another week so we went ahead to selected our Top 10 incredible photos from this event.
