Photography Going Further

May 05, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

Hello and welcome back to my blog! I hope you will be just as stoked reading it as I am writing it!

Reflecting on why I love to photograph and share my images I came up with what are essentially selfish reasons; expression and validation of self. These are not inherently unwholesome motivations. They are uniquely and beautifully human. They are, however, limited. I want my photography to do more! Don't you? Then, let's make that happen!

25% of each and every purchase of a digital file from my website will be donated to one of the environmental advocacy groups highlighted below. That's $25 per purchase! You can tell me which organization you like best, leave it up to me or tell me about a group you think is doing great things to protect our environment. Drop me a comment or message me so I can make sure your donation makes it into the right hands.

Please purchase and share share share! We need wild beautiful places as well as healthy sustainable communities and they need us!
