Your investment in my non-commercial work bears exponential rewards for the community.

We are all connected.

Even if I haven’t photographed you or someone that you know, odds are that these images can impact your community.

Photographs can amplify the positive actions of our neighbors, creating ripple effects of inspiration and change.

When we create images of the subjects that we know to be truly worthwhile, it allows these things to transcend time and space, impacting larger audiences long after the fleeting moments have passed.  By sharing my images directly with the communities that I photograph, I provide them with extra visual ammunition to use in the telling of their own stories.
