Photography is something I’ve enjoyed since I was about 6 years old, when my father introduced me to to film cameras. I haven’t put the camera down, although the camera has changed quite a bit, since that first brown plastic Kodak I had as a kid. I've co-authored a book, called In The Big Forest about humanitarian work in Benin, West Africa (seewww.inthebigforest.org). I hope my photography and work with with local and international NGOs will help move us towards a more peaceful and sustainable planet for our children. Currently I am working with Friends of Shenandoah Mountain to help conserve this rare wilderness in the Eastern US. Photography has played an important role in documenting various projects in Benin, India, Malta, Rwanda and the Nez Pierce Reservation in Montana. I have also worked with local non-profit organizations, donating services to the Lehman Center, a home for children, and the Interfaith Peace Camp at Eastern Mennonite University.
I’d love to talk to you about helping to capture the emotions of your event, or simply catching a few precious moments of what your family is like one this particular lap around the sun. Please contact me for more information about my work.
