Coffee Region Road Trip

A few of my friends, Troy (Foggodyssey) and Marcello (Wandering Trader) are on a 10-day photography road trip with Mikey (Lightenupandshoot). They posted this video in the midst of their adventures.  I’ll be sharing more with you as it becomes available.

Help Portrait Medellin 2011

This video captures a photo-charity project lead by my buddy Troy Floyd. Help Portrait Medellín 2011 from Katie Hudson. The concept is simple: it’s comprised of photographers and volunteers who want to come together and give free professional photographs back to the wonderful Paisa people of Medellín. We hit the streets armed with our camera […]

Lightenupandshoot Parkour

I discovered Mikey and Andy, the photography duo behind Lightenupandshoot, late last year before I had to leave Colombia. Aside from their funny videos and laid back approach toward teaching photography, they spend part of the year (when not working abroad) living in Medellin! I immediately began to watch all their instructional photography videos shot […]

Photo Essay: Christmas Lights in Medellin

Video – Colombia: A Year in Photos

Robin from The Arepa put together a great video of photos from the past year. If I knew how to edit video, I’d be doing the same!

Photo of the Week – Me and My Personal Trainer

Camilo was not shy about pushing me to work hard at Dinamo, the gym a few blocks from Maira’s apartment in Envigado. On the other hand, I’ve gotten several compliments since returning home, so apparently all the hard work has made a noticeable difference (at least in my shoulders). There are two gym chains in […]
