For the past four summers, I have led photography workshops with National Geographic Student Expeditions. This July, I worked with 41 high school students from around the world in San Francisco and Yosemite National Park over a 12-day period. Throughout the journey, we had amazing excursions to witness the landscape, understand the culture and meet the locals. We had classroom time where students learned the editing process, and at the end of the expedition, their work was exhibited in a prominent city gallery. The expedition was a wonderful chance to see the students grow -- not only as photographers, but also as young adults. Here are a few images that I made along the way.
Environmental and active portraits of Wayne Clark, a resident of Maryland who moved here specifically for the area's bike trails. At age 66, Wayne bikes about 5,000 miles each year. A story profile of Wayne for AARP is here (link).
Periodically throughout the year, I teach photography aboard the Lindblad and National Geographic Expeditions vessels. This summer, I had the privilege of leading two groups on Lord of the Glens as we explored Scotland's Caledonian Canal and Inner Hebrides. A few images from the voyage are below.
Vox Media held a conference in Washington, D.C. called Vox Conversations. It was an invitation-only event for guests to assess what has changed, what hasn't, and what comes next with a new administration in the White House. Over a two-day period, I filmed interviews with prominent guest speakers, including one with New Jersey Senator Cory Booker (story).
Portraits of Chris Turner, a man accused and convicted of a brutal 1984 murder in Washington, D.C.; however, he has claimed his innocence since the beginning. The latest story on what transpired, along with images, was a collaborative effort between The Guardian (link) and The Marshall project (link).
