"Every day, a baby is born. Every day, someone dies. Every single day. And we capture everything in between. You think of this thing called life and how it’s preserved. It’s preserved through vision, through photographs.” — John H. White

Brisbane, the third largest city in Australia after Sydney and Melbourne with about 3 million people, is named after the river that runs through it and seemed to be modeled after London. Lovely city...
Here I am with their version of the Eye.

save what you love

“If we can teach people about wildlife, they will be touched. Share my wildlife with me. Because humans want to save things that they love.” ― Steve Irwin
              Just back from an incredible week documenting conservation efforts and awareness at the Australia Zoo, located outside of Brisbane, Australia, in the Glasshouse Mountains. See below:
From hugging koalas to lounging with kangaroos, feeding elephants to scrubbing tortoises, the students learned what it takes to be a zookeeper and how much work wildlife conservation, education, and initiatives take. The zoo is known for being very interactive so that visitors get to know the animals and that in turn furthers the interest and care for them. This is exactly the sort of thing I love to shoot and why I do what I do- to put a face on issues I love that hopefully brings about awareness, change, interest or at least a laugh, be a storyteller of topics that matter, and experience every type of job out there!
