Africa Assignment – Humanitarian Photography
I’ve just spent the last few months at home here in the UK concentrating on wedding photography and I’ve had a great time being a part of several couple’s big day. It’s definitely different to my humanitarian work and it has its own challenges but it’s been an incredible few months and its also meant that I’ve been able to spend some real quality time with my family.
But that’s over for this year and I’m heading off in a couple of weeks to Malawi and Zambia, to be honest even though I’ve loved doing the wedding work I’m itching to get out there and do some work for Outreach International. So, the trip consists of a week in Malawi followed by a few days in Zambia before heading back home.
I also have a mini announcement to make which I’m really excited about. Within the last few weeks I’ve been given a contract by Outreach International to serve them on a part-time basis over the next year as photographer and media consultant. They’re an amazing organisation that has a unique way of tackling issues of poverty in the countries they work and it’s a privilege for me to be a part of that work. If you check out their website you’ll see some of my images being used and read about the lives that are being changed and their fantastic achievements within many communities.
