I never do photo contests, but couldn’t resist taking part in this. Honored to have my photo among 6 finalists in the Veolia and ParisMatch contest! More than 15,000 photos were posted by people around the world on the LovePlanet.photo platform.
I was honored to be a part of an important project, a white paper presented by IFPRI & Veolia. This joint partnership presents information that proves the world is on a path toward rapidly deteriorating water quality levels in many countries. It’s a big issue and something we all take for granted here in the west. Well, perhaps if you’re in California you’ve had a more direct impact lately.
Read more about the study here.
Read the white paper.
I provided the graphic design for this piece, as well as the photo on page 2. Here are other photos from that series, taken in Chicago.
12-15-2015 UPDATE: I was elated to hear that the main photo here, titled, Positive Reflection, was among 6 finalists in the loveplanet.photo contest by Veolia and Paris Match, chosen from 15,000 photos received! There were some amazing photos submitted, so I’m honored to be part of it.

Here are a few more photos to close out the year. The leaves were great this year. A short trip to Eagle Creek Park and a few epic sunsets. Now winter is here, which means lots of gray, cold and possibly a lot of snow. There’s beauty in winter and I look forward to capturing some of it! 🙂
