    Great podcast, there are ways that we should all be more philanthropic in life and it’s good to hear from the moral side where photography can be used for change and not just for making money (although money is good too :).

    Thanks for having me on the podcast. Your listeners have been great, several have already helped us and investigated our book.

    I felt a bit guilty about not getting into more details of the photography. So, I’ve posted a detailed description of the camera settings and processing steps I used to create the photo of the mother and child of Zoungbomey. Anyone who is interested can find those details here:


    Thanks again for all your help. Have a great trip to the deep (frozen) south!
