SO BEYOND HONORED that +Nikon USA is showcasing one of my favorite images as the front page photograph on their website! Like, right.exactly.there. Just such a WOW moment for me to see it, and alongside so many lovely lenses, too : )
Definitely feeling that ‪#‎NikonLove‬ right now.

Every child deserves a home. But if you don't have a home, you at least deserve a safe place to shower.

This brief but immensely informative discussion with Meredith Dolhare, the Executive Director of RunningWorks, explains exactly WHY it is so important to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness, especially for children as young as age 4, like the ones in their program. She shares how adults who had been homeless for years, and no longer were due to their program, had pleaded with her to start helping kids, so they don't have to spend a decade on the streets like they did; how alone and confused kids can feel after moving through ten or more homes in the foster care system before aging out, at such a young age - and how running really does work when it comes to teaching (and living out) values like discipline, accountability, honesty, commitment and willingness.
Our newest Beautiful Together project is focused on providing safe, portable showers to homeless youth who are actively trying to change their life by striving for better, trying to get jobs, trying to get steady meals, trying to get housing. See WHY there is such a strong correlation between aging out of foster care (at 17 in NC) and homelessness - and what you can do to help. We would love your support - whether through donation or sharing of this project need - to provide this life-changing homeless youth program with private, portable showers, personal hygiene supplies and towels, and coveted bus passes!

All project details are at http://BeautifulTogether.org
Thank you so much for watching - and for caring.

Thanks for sharing this very inspiring and motivating video. I am inspired to help in my local community more making a difference with the homeless.

Looking forward to returning to the 6th annual +Adorama Street Fair in New York City this Sunday! Once again, they will shut down 18th Street and put on quite a show. I'll be doing a live shoot & talk at 1pm, joining all these other - well, men for a great day of food, photography, prize winning (like, seriously. very generous prize winning) and "hometown" football love. I am apparently also on the hook with my son to return with a signed autograph and photo with Odell Beckham Jr and am told I should take that far more seriously than any of the other stuff I'll be doing in New York. So there's that. Check out all the very cool details and hope to see you there!

The sheer power, deafening sound, and far-reaching spray of the waterfalls in Iceland make them quite worth the muddy hike behind them, even if I did get way more soaked taking this shot than I'd guessed I would. Posting day 3 of photographs of the natural world.

Shot with +Nikon USA D810, 24-70 2.8.

Beautiful, unique composition. People have come away with some lovely images from that country, but they pretty much run into each other, no matter how spectacular. They've just been done. I have never seen this before, which really makes it stand out to me. Beautifully balanced with the whites, nice leading lines, makes me want to stare at it for a while. :)

My friend Charlotte nominated me to post a photo of the natural world for the next 7 days. My gut response to this was twofold: 1. I love photos of the natural word, I love to take them and I am inspired when I see them 2. Ummm, that seems like a whole lot of extra work just now when we have so much going on in the studio.
But I DO love this photograph I shot while at Yellowstone, and it is a ‪#‎TravelTuesday‬ after all. And I am struck by how a late afternoon sun mixed with a still-blue sky can also combine with the surreal hot springs of the area, with all that fog and warm spray from the gushing geysers and the oily, bubbling streams that run across this burnt-out Wyoming land and next thing I know I'm posing my Day 1 photo right here right now.

(Shot with +Nikon USA D810, 24-70 2.8 at f/13.)

Sigh-worthy summer skies at twilight on Bald Head Island, a ‪#‎throwbackthursday‬ to two long weeks ago.

Shot during a flight into Logan Airport, Boston, with the aid of some pretty spectacular fading evening light. Or, why I always ask for a window seat. Photographed with +Nikon USA D810, 24-70 2.8,

Breathtakingly clear view from a hike in Queenstown, New Zealand - shot several years ago. I remember thinking 1. This is crazy beautiful. 2. I'm hungry. 3. I think I'm taking far too many photographs
4. I'm really, really hungry.

Love the description. It is crazy beautiful. I like the way you captured the depth of field (if that's the correct term). I can tell that the mountains are off on the distance. When I take similar pictures they come out looking "flat". Thanks for the post. :-)

Day 2 of posting photographs of the natural world - this is one of my very favorites from a drive through the south of France two summers ago. This image strikes me as a reminder from the universe that we are all here to experience sunshine, lightness and joy, if we just do our best to stand tall, lift our heads and look for it.
(Then repeat as often as necessary.)
