Photography Quick Case Studies

St. Boniface Haiti Foundation (SBHF) Annual Reports
Photography of SBHF’s new and existing facilities in Haiti were published in Annual Reports 2011-2014 providing valuable information for donors and stakeholders resulting in a well-respected International organization. The visuals supported the progress and growth of a tiny Hospital in rural Haiti, resulting in an improved quality of life for thousands in the rural communities after the devastating earthquake in 2010. Strong imagery was also used to support a new Corporate Identity through printed materials, website and Social Media, giving SBHF a consistent visual appeal.

Time Magazine - Time for Kids 2013
“A Day in the Life - Bolivia” is an educational piece for kids to discover different cultures of the world.
