I used to write poems and draw when I was young to tell my story. As I got older I found my creative outlet in photography; 5 years ago I made it a business. It has been so fulfilling to tell people's stories in my community here in Seattle. A little over a year ago I applied to PWB in hopes of telling a bigger story to even more people and I am honored to say that I am finally able to.
Photography has always been a great conduit for telling a story. Now I get to tell a bigger story.
I will be going to Nicaragua in October and I could use your help for this adventure!
I am excited to photograph the amazing work Casa-Pueblito is doing. They work in solidarity with their community partners to tackle their most pressing needs and create positive change in five program areas.
These are the projects that they are supporting in 2017 which I will get to see and visit.
Water and Food Security
Education and Culture
Health and Sanitation

Every year, our photographers and videographers donate hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of their time to document the work of grassroots initiatives that are making a real change in this world where it is most needed. By capturing, honoring and witnessing humanity at its best, we are not only inspiring many, but we are forging new narratives of what is and what is possible.
You can help by supporting our photographers and videographers (See the side bar to the right to see fundraisers for our most recent recruits).
Each of our official photographers/videographers is assigned a GroupRev fundraising page by PWB upon acceptance. These pages are a privilege we offer that are intended to make our programs accessible to all and enable our volunteer photographers/videographers to raise their program fees and subsidize or cover these necessary project-related expenses:
- Health Insurance
- Travel Insurance
The following expenses are the sole responsibility of the photographer/videographer:
- Privately arranged travel / Equipment & Equipment Insurance / Software / Extra Baggage Fees / Donation perks / Clothing / Postage/Postcard / Prints / Etc.
Photographers Without Borders® (PWB) envisions the world where we all put ourselves in each others' shoes and work together. Our mission is to inform and inspire positive change by visually communicating the ways that grassroots initiatives are addressing problems in their communities. PWB is registered as a charity in the United States with 501(c)(3) status and is registered as a not-for-profit organization in Canada. All donations are calculated in US Dollars and are tax-deductible for Americans and Canadians with US income.
PWB is not responsible for any donations made outside of these pages.
Any overage amounts raised on GroupRev will be donated with the photographer's direction, 100% to the Organization, 100% to PWB or split 50/50, between the photographer's/videographer's assigned cause and PWB, which is also a volunteer-run organization.
PLEASE DONATE GENEROUSLY!
