I’ll be excited to share more about this project once it publishes in August, but earlier this year, Steve and I were fortunate enough to spend some time in a place I’d dreamt of seeing since I was 5 years old — the Brazilian Amazon.Read More
Cuba: Outside In was turned in just over two weeks, and I’m damn proud of it. We actually went on to place 2nd in our category of the Hearst Awards at the national level for team multimedia reporting — not bad for a first attempt.

I’ve always held a fascination for landscape imagery and so much respect for the classics like Ansel Adams, Galen Rowell, or Sebastião Selgado, who can express such scenes so well.

It’s in a constant state of flux and almost always a guessing game.
