INQUIRE

If you know any part of how I got into photography, it was essentially to photograph people who had never had their photo taken. Some would call me a humanitarian photographer, but really that’s really all I photograph: people who were unlikely to have their story told and to bring an awareness to the good things happening in this world.

Last year, I was able to travel to Ethiopia to work with Three Roots International in the field and create a solid portfolio of images for them to use in their campaigns. It was absolutely incredible and my first time to Africa.

Three Roots International is an organization that aims to assist not just individuals but families and communities through improving  education, medical care and economic opportunity in areas that are extremely lacking in those three areas. On this particular trip, my focus was documenting  the expansion of their child sponsorship program as well as well as their trainings and community development.

It was amazing to be back just one year later as their humanitarian photographer. One of my favorite parts of the trip was showing members of the community photos I had taken of them last year. Their faces lighting up, to what’s hopefully a portrait that makes them feel like they have purpose, value, and hope was a wonderful feeling.

If you haven’t seen last year’s images, take a look at those, then enjoy a few of my favorites from this year’s trip to Ethiopia.

Lastly, if after viewing the images you feel compelled to help out in any way, you can start here.
