I was in Australia with Rheumatic Rescue to attend the World Congress of Cardiology. For an off day we decided to drive the Great Ocean Road. One of our stops was at Erskine Falls. Very steep drop on the hike which off course means that not only do I have to lug myself back out but the big camera has to be carried back out as well. Worth it though. Very beautiful waterfall. ...on a side note, this is also the inaugural picture for both my new Canham large format camera as well as a new 90mm lens. I think we will get along together just fine.
I spent around 4 weeks in Samoa last summer photographing. I worked with 3 different groups from Utah Valley University. The main one was a group called Rheumatic Rescue that seeks to educate, screen and find a cure for Rheumatic Heart Disease. It is a preventable disease that affects children and can result in death due to heart failure. Many pictures will be shared from my time there. This diptych was taken at the hotel were our group stayed while on the island of Savai'i. I was wowed by this tree every time I walked past it. As we were packing up to leave the island I decided I couldn't leave without creating a picture of it.
I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Photography from Brigham Young University and a Master of Fine Arts degree through Maine Media College. I currently teach photography at Utah Valley University.
