Create Change Campaign

I’m thrilled to have been able to give hundreds of young children the opportunity to experience creativity and photography in their schooling for the first time.

In so many communities I’ve visited with The Boundless Edit, even having textbooks, or chalk to write on a blackboard can be an issue, so it's natural that the resources for creative classes are just not possible. We endeavour to provide creative classes of various types to classes in the communities we work in. From crafts and drawing in Micronesia and Madagascar, to painting in Nepal and Uganda, we also aim to leave behind as many future resources for the local school teachers to continue the lessons for as long as possible.

Need like a wolf paces the perimeter of your world, back and forth, back and forth, never letting up. ...You’re appalled by the new appetites within you, kicking their feet and clawing to get out.”

— Nikki Gemmell, The Bride Stripped Bare

Seats and tray tables in the upright position

Each community I have the pleasure of visiting has its own particular characteristics, aesthetic language and ambiance. If we want photographs of our travels to be invoking and lasting, they should capture all of these qualities, and say as much about a place as give the literal look of it. Read below for some of my favourite travel photography tips.
