One of the reasons I became a photographer was that I saw how images could move people emotionally. They can incite change, rally people to support others, or donate money to those in need. The images from Nepal during and immediately following the earthquake a few days ago are finally pouring out into the news and social media outlets and people are starting to understand the gravity of the situation. This disaster feels more personal to me than others have in the past because I was recently in the region. Unfortunately I never made it to Nepal, but I did make a trip to the foothills of the Himalayas, where I was struck by the natural beauty and the generosity of the people I met there. Now I feel trapped on the other side of the world, wanting to be there on the ground helping and taking the photos that affect people to make a positive difference.
Unfortunately a ticket to Nepal is not an option for me right now, so instead I’ll focus my efforts here on raising money and awareness. I’ve decided to sell photographic prints, donating 100% of the proceeds to Nepali aid via the Red Cross. Print sizes and pricing below. Please view the gallery of what is for sale
4 x 6″ – $20
8 x 10″ – $75

All proceeds will go to the Red Cross unless you have a specific charity you would like to donate to, in which case please specify. If you would rather donate directly here are some easy options:
