Photography has been a passion of mine since I can remember, and I'm very fortunate to travel the world with my camera. From the days of inception, a desire to expand my work's impact emerged. My dream of making a career through my art was becoming a reality, and I knew it had the ability to help others as well. That longing for a greater purpose finally came to fruition in 2018 when I founded the Long Shutter Project.
The Long Shutter Project is an extension of my photography designed to give back. The goal is to build a body of work that benefits causes important to me. In 2016, my best friend, Nate, passed away from complications caused by muscular dystrophy. Nate developed the condition as a kid but refused to let it slow him down. He lived every day to the fullest and left an impact on everyone he met. Long before his unexpected passing, the Long Shutter Project idea was born because of Nate. In his honor, the first branch of the Long Shutter Project, the Earth Forms Collection, benefits the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
The Earth Forms Collection is currently the lone branch of the Long Shutter Project. I expect to expand the project to benefit additional causes beyond the MDA in the future as well as grow the Earth Forms Collection. A lot of thought goes into everything involving the Long Shutter Project to ensure it's maintained properly and contains high-quality work. Future expansions may take time but to stay up to date on the latest Long Shutter Project news please subscribe to my monthly newsletter or follow me on Facebook or Instagram.
