I love motion. It helps to bring a sense of place. On a train it gives you the movement. On the ground it can be a way to show the business of life on the streets.

In this seriesI look at moments throughout the trip where as busy  as things are, i find some solitude

All these photos were shot with the Nikon D600. The two at night were shot at 6400 ISO. This is a great second camera for me. 24megapixels and full frame make it a great camera, but it doesnt have the autofocus that I am used to, so for now, the D3 is still my go to. For anyone looking to get into a full frame camera on a budget, or looking for video, this is a great camera.

 

Here is the second post in our series about India. Today we will look at the first part of our trip to Kerala to spend time with the Pothens at their bible college and childrens homes.

Back home after 2 incredible weeks in India with my wife Kelly. We were working with Dr. John and Ammini Abraham at their medical Clinic in the slums of Mumbai. It’s hard to believe, but they have been serving the poor for over 35 years, and their love for people shines through.

It’s hard to imagine, but this entire family lives in the slum in Ghatkupar. 8 family members share an 10×10 room. Im sitting on the bed shooting at 20mm to capture as much as I can of the room.

 

I just finished up my most recent video project for the SmartSite Team These guys dont just work with you to build a website, they create a marketing blueprint, so that every piece of your website works together to reach your target audience. If you are looking for a marketing strategy, or a full service marketing team, give them a call and begin to design smart.

Not long ago, Justin the founder of the Cameroon Football Development Program, lived in a village outside of our hoe base of Kumba. He was working with the University of Dayton, in Ohio, to design and construct a water system for a farming village that is set off of the beautiful Lake Barombi. The project was quite an undertaking, and after months of hard work the project was finished. Now Justin has returned to Cameroon, for the fifth time, to start the Cameroon Football Development Program. CFDP is designed to engage the youth of Cameroon, and eventually West Africa, in life skills, and HIV education on the soccer field.

I met Justin in the late fall, and we began working together. I redesigned their website on a wordpress platform, and integrated their blog, so that as things move along, whoever is managing their PR, and online presence, can easily mange everything from one menu. They loved the results, and now I am spending two months in Cameroon photographing their project, and shooting videos to help explain the different facets of the program.

Today, join me on a trip to Barombi, across the lake in a wooden canoe that I was sure was going to deposit myself and cameras in the lake.

The trip to Barombi... Every time the "boat" aka hollowed tree trunk, shifted my stomach was in my mouth
