The kids from Action in Africa warmed my heart and melted it. They showed me love, laughter and happiness like I have never experienced. All the words I would like to express about my experience are within these photos and their smiles.
A dream adventure in Africa
I have traveled from Glenwood Springs, CO to Uganda to photograph and work with Action in Africa, a non-profit organization that strives to educate, inspire, and empower Ugandan people to become the next leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs in their country.
In partnership with Action in Africa, I developed a photography program within a school curriculum, where I teach children about documenting the fun, fleeting moments in life. I plan to return to Africa in the coming years to keep giving back to the place and people that have stolen my heart. In addition to Action in Africa, I will also be photographing African animals and working with non-profit organizations supporting wildlife conservation. Travel photography is some of the most fun work I have done, and teaching photography to my Ugandan students is by far the most rewarding experience of my life. Their enthusiasm for taking photos of themselves, their friends, and their community has touched me deeply and I cannot wait to be with them again!
