I bring 30 years' experience to documenting humanitarian crises and issues affecting the developing world, from Global health alerts, water and sanitation, education, food security to human trafficking. My knowledge of local conditions, issues and solutions is used by the UN and many other international agencies to provide insightful visual images for publication or situational analysis.
From humanitarian assignments in over 50 countries and with residence in Laos and Vietnam for over 20 years, I have a deep working knowledge of conditions and requirements.
Commercial assignments have been within large hydropower projects and the gold mining industry. I spent 6 years visually documenting dam construction in Laos, from turf cut to power generation.
I mentor groups and individuals in the skills, sensitivities, and processes of documentary photography specifically within a developing world context, including sessions on digital demystification, visual literacy, image ethics and identity protection.
