Radim Schreiber originally came to Maharishi University of Management from the Czech Republic to improve his English. He ended up becoming an award-winning nature photographer.
Radim learned the Transcendental Meditation technique in 1996 and came to MUM in 1998. He enrolled as an undergraduate student, choosing to study digital media. He graduated in 2004 with a BFA in macro photography and won an Outstanding Student Award.
Since 2008, he has won at least one award each year including the grand prize of the Rainforest Alliance's annual Picture Sustainability Contest twice in a row—and first place in the Smithsonian Magazine's Annual Photo Contest in The Natural World Category, where he competed against 56,000 other entries.
Radim is most well-known for his firefly photography which has won him several of his awards. ''I try to create a magical experience with my art,'' Radim said. ''I look into the consciousness and spirit of the animals, and I see fireflies as a metaphor for the illumination of consciousness.''
He also comments, ''I am using the latest technology to bring images to people's awareness that they may not normally see, and these images would hopefully move people. . . . I would like people to have the experience of transcending through observing or witnessing the art.''
