Amazon Update 5 – Fighting Sexual Abuse of Children

By |May 3rd, 2014|Human Trafficking, Humanitarian, Operation Blessing, Peru, Travel|0 Comments

I edited this on the plane yesterday, uploaded last night at my hotel. I wasn’t going to share it because it was a rushed day, I didn’t have extra time on the ground like I did in the other days when they were spontaneous in free moments -usually traveling. I had a change of mind am decided there are a couple parts in it worth sharing even if it doesn’t all tie together in a […]

Amazon Update 4: A New Home and PackH2O Backpacks

By |May 2nd, 2014|Clean Water, Community Development, Humanitarian, Operation Blessing, Peru, Travel|0 Comments

It was another awesome day here in the Peruvian Amazon! What started out as iPhone videos to send back to my boys has turned into a video journal of sorts. Today’s video is quite a bit longer because I was long winded, didn’t think about how it would all tie together and there is only so much editing you can do on an iPhone. The plus side is that there are several fun and interesting […]

Update from the Amazon in Peru

By |May 1st, 2014|Peru, Travel, Videos|0 Comments

What do I do when I have a 2 hour boat ride and everyone else is asleep?  I edit together some iPhone footage (and 1 clip sent from the DJI Phantom to my phone using the GoPro wifi and app…which I forgot to turn off when I put it in the case) using iMovie on my iPhone.
Having a great time covering the Operation Blessing projects in Peru!  It’s no walk in the park – unless […]

From my first trip to the Amazon, to eating an alligator burger and holding an anaconda, this trip has started out with a lot of “firsts” for me.

I arrived in Kimana, Kenya without any lights and had to improvise to be able to shoot video and photos in their homes.  Watch this video to see the cheap and easy solution I found for this photo and for the videos I created to tell their stories.

A Gateway To Slavery: Human Trafficking From Nepal To India

By |March 24th, 2014|Human Trafficking, Humanitarian, Nepal, Operation Blessing, Videos|0 Comments

I had the eye-opening experience of visiting Birgunj, Nepal to learn about the work Operation Blessing is doing to combat human trafficking in partnership with the Nepali Rescue Project.  The open border between Nepal and India allows citizens of both countries to freely cross the borders without a passport to live and work in either country.  This has a lot of great benefits, but the freedom has a cost.  It has […]

Poverty Through A Child’s Eyes

I had the privilege of following 8-year-old Johnny around his village to capture what he found interesting.  Poverty is immediately evident when you arrive arrive in Medan Belize, Haiti – but it looks different through a child’s eyes.  I saw hardship and awful living conditions but Johnny saw his family, his home, and a goal for his future.  It is exciting to see the work that Operation Blessing is doing in the community and the […]

Shooting The Reef In Roatan, Honduras At Sunrise

By |March 2nd, 2014|Featured, Honduras, PhotoBlog, Photography, Tips & Techniques, Travel, Videos|0 Comments

On my last day in Roatan, Honduras I woke up early to capture HDR images of the beach outside my hotel at sunrise. The sun was rising behind me, but the color of the light was still seen on the clouds in the sky on my side of the island. It was the only morning I had available because every other day we were up early to travel to the island of St. Helene. In […]

Overlooking the reef in the West Bay of Roatan. The water is clear and the reefs are incredible which attracts many snorkelers and divers. I only had 30 minutes of daylight left, so it was a short, but beautiful swim to the end of this peninsula.

This morning I returned before our flight out to get some footage and pictures with a DJI Phantom and GoPro. […]

Postcard From Honduras

The past few days my main transportation has been by boat. While traveling today I saw this scene of Little Pigeon Key and thought it looked like a postcard. I quickly grabbed my camera from my bag and created a few frames.

I also enjoyed my first deep sea fishing adventure and met some fascinating people. Tomorrow I return home, so I wanted to send this […]
