With Virunga National Park closed to tourism since our evacuation more than a year ago, The Senkwekwe Oprhan Gorilla Center is in dire need of financial support. The Senkwekwe Center is the only facility in the world providing long-term care to mountain gorilla orphans. Your support will help ensure that Virunga National Park is able to provide continued food, shelter, and medical care for mountain gorilla orphans. With less than 800 mountain gorillas left on earth, every individual is vital to the survival of the species. Even a small donation goes a long way to assisting the remarkable efforts being made to protect Virunga National Park and its precious wildlife.

A very powerful image and story from the tragic collapse of the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh

“If it’s not going to stop with Rana [Plaza collapse], what are we wishing on ourselves? 10,000 dead?”

Some great images in this photo essay on Vietnamese circus performers
A photo essay on a Vietnamese circus focuses on the moments after the aerialists’ flights or the rides on the elephants, when the performers go home.

Always enjoy seeing Trey stirring up the equipment debate... Nikon or Canon? How about Sony!

Photographer and writer specializing in vivid landscape and travel photography
Introduction
Kyle Hammons is a photographer and writer who travels the globe in search of vivid imagery and compelling stories that capture the essence of the places he visits. His photography and writing is born out of a life-long love of nature and fascination with the world around him. When he’s not bouncing around the world on ramshackle buses, overcrowded trains, or on the back of a rickshaw, you can find him in Denver, Colorado eagerly planning his next adventure.

Kyle has traveled across nearly all fifty states and more than thirty countries abroad, much of it alone.  His inspiration for traveling, writing, and photography came from his first trip overseas when he was invited to spend several weeks living in a traditional Fijian village.  Though he had come only for the adventure, Kyle had discovered a way of life that would open his heart and mind to the world around him and the lay the groundwork for a lifetime to follow.

Kyle is an award-winning photographer whose writing and photography have been featured in books, magazines, newspapers, advertisements, catalogs and exhibitions, both in the United States and abroad. His photographs are also featured as corporate art at a number of businesses throughout the United States, as well as several private collections.
