My lifelong friend David flew from Colorado in late September to join his three brothers and myself for a trek up Washington’s second highest peak, Mount Adams. After ascending about 4,000 vertical feet, we set up camp near 9,500 feet to sleep before climbing the rest of the way. It was chilly up there, but it was about the best weather possible and being with these guys was, um, priceless…
I was sifting through some photos from my time in Fiji in ’02 and found this little diddy. Fiji is one of those get-away vacation spots where visitors don’t always take time to hang with the locals. I know that sipping fruity drinks and relaxingÂ undisturbedÂ in paradise is sometimes necessary, it’s just that Fijian people greatly enrich their beautiful land. So if you ever go, do relax, and visit too.Â These kids live in a small village near the capital city of Suva and were gracious enough to scream at me.
I’m honored to announce that some of my images are published at vewd.org — a new documentary photography magazine. The photos glimpse into the lives of street children who live in and around the Howrah Railway Station near Kolkata, India. My hope is to play a part in helping provide sustainable resources for them to get off of the streets and stop using drugs. If you want to know more about an organization working with children, please drop me a line.
As most of you know, I don’t photograph many weddings anymore, but when Ian and Bekah approached me, everything seemed like the right fit. And I gotta say, it was as stylish and romantic as they come, and a true celebration of love. It was an honor to witness and document such a great event. Have an amazing honeymoon, yous guys.
