A Safe Place

The nature of my work means I am often planning and setting up images, working to create something that captures the story. The locations I get to work in however, gifts me countless opportunities for spontaneous frames like this one. The authentic moments that can not be re-created or staged. I find a good story…

The Nepalese Putali

In a small temple near Patan Durbar Square in Nepal, I came across these beautiful hand crafted puppets. While in many places in Nepal you can find these puppets available to purchase as souvenirs, these were well used and not for sale, their history and age would be interesting to learn more about. There was…

Living Life Amongst Ancient History

I love to explore and find new places. I always enjoy markets, little road side stores, and the character of tiny little independent shops like this one, hidden away down sleepy back alleys. I was on assignment in Nepal with @dinadinepal and @prestonthiessen, founder of Dinadi, spent a day with me on the back of…

Working on the Streets of Nepal

I think what I most enjoy about being a photographer is the variety of work I get to do. No assignment is ever the same, locations vary dramatically, I face very different challenges, and every assignment has a different purpose. I had the opportunity to work with @dinadinepal as they first began their ethical knitwear…

Hand Crafted & Home Made

During my time on assignment in Nepal, I got to meet and photograph all the artisans producing the handcrafted products for @dinadinepal. It was wonderful to see how life changing the employment opportunities with Dinadi is to these women. Every article produced by Dinadi is hand made, and comes signed by the artisan, so you…

Chime – In Memory of a Lost Brother.

I met Chime while on assignment with @johndavidsonco trekking in the HIMALAYAS. Chime owns and runs a small guest house in the village of Langtang. Back in 2015, the huge earthquake that hit Nepal dislodged a massive landslide high above this small, sleepy village. With tremendous force, the landslide completely destroyed every building in the…

African Sunset Perfection

This is one of my favorite images, captured in Malawi a few years ago! Sitting at sunset, I watched these two young fisherman paddle out into one of the tributaries of Lake Malawi. The wooden canoe, the natural beauty of Malawi, and the approaching sunset created such a breathtaking scene. The lake is home to…

A Portrait Of Beauty

This morning I would like to introduce you to Bora. I met Bora while working with @pappyorion on assignment with @womenforwomen and @johnacoby in the DR Congo where she works as a coffee producer. For you and me, coffee is a luxury that helps us get through the day. For Bora, coffee means a better…

Old Men Of Georgia

Summertime in Georgia. While the young men are out working, these old men have found themselves a pleasantly shady spot under the trees. From this view point, they are able to stay cool, enjoy a drink, and critique the abilities, quality, and efficiency of the work going on around them. A very entertaining few hours…
