My first solo photo book #NotMyPresident documents protests against Donald J. Trump and his presidency over a five-year period. It features many courageous protestors exercising their First Amendment Rights to protect civil rights and the very fabric of democracy. You can pre-order the book on Indiegogo. The book already raised more than $15,000 from 200 backers on Kickstarter. Why I […]

One year ago, my family visited Acadia National Park for a long holiday weekend. The gorgeous yellow, orange, and red foliage dazzled us. It was just hitting its peak during that brief window of time. Of course, I brought my cameras, and now a year later it is time to share the images in a photo essay. Given the difficulties […]

Given the ongoing coronavirus, I decided to convert my Nikon D810 to infrared. Now I am seeing the Washington, DC area in a new light. After photographing the DC area for more a couple of decades now, I welcome the change. Infrared has given me a new sense of excitement about photographing the region.

See the photos in the podcast or below in a photo essay format, or just listen to the podcast to hear about those protest trends, the major issues that define the Trump presidency.

For the past four years, I have posted protest photos on Flickr with a limited creative commons license. My intent? To empower other storytellers to further their own conversations with the images.
