Nonprofit Photography – SheLift

Nonprofit Photography – SheLift

As a photographer it’s sometimes hard to justify shooting non profit photography, especially pro bono. But every once in a while some a project comes along that is just too perfect to pass up. Last spring I was presented with an opportunity to direct a film and a stills campaign for the non-profit SheLift. MORE PHOTOS

SUP first Descent of Utah’s Escalante River

IT’S BEEN PUBLISHED !! As an adventure photographer, I struggle with deciding whether or not to publish something. Especially in my own backyard. Some places are meant to stay secret! But when done right, it can bring awareness to an area and keep conservation efforts high. The Escalante was one of many magical tributaries that… MORE PHOTOS

Why do I shoot alone?

Why do I shoot alone?

I recently had one of my all-time best days of shooting. And of course, I was alone. I endured freezing rain, massive, powerful gusts of wind and shivered until the night turned to light.

Besides the Rome-esque feel to the many sights, such as Vitthala Temple and Virupashka Temple, these ruins are situated among some of the oldest rocks on earth. MORE PHOTOS

Gokarna, India: relaxation epitomized

After 30 hours on a train, Gokarna, India, was a well-needed respite. Although it is completely unlike all other parts of India I have experienced, as well as completely different from what I had expected from a beach town in India, it is in its own holiday-retreat way, charming. Comprised of three main beaches and two lesser developed beaches, Gokarna couldn’t possibly get any more peaceful. MORE PHOTOS

For many, it needs no introduction. Varanasi: The holiest of holy places in India, where Shiva and Ganges meet. People pilgrim by the millions each year to bathe in the waters of the Ganges River, believing that their sins will be washed away.
