Studio portrait from the same day.
Been really meaning to do a post about this for the past month or so. I am now selling prints through CoEdit, a new site by Amy Wolff and Tim Klein. My friend Kate Osba is involved as well and curated a special section of selected work called Hardest Shot I Ever Took. Thank you to Amy and Kate for inviting me to be a part of this!
Stephanie, Mark, and Eric from my recent Esquire story are on CBS news!
new images added to my portfolio…
Donated a print to Artist Heal PH, started by my friend Michelle, to raise money for victims of the recent typhoon in the Philippines.
Here is a little more about the project:
On November 8th, Typhoon Haiyan (local name Yolanda) struck a path of destruction through the Philippines affecting millions of people. The images seen were heartbreaking and the stories of loss unimaginable. This was where we came from – the place our family called home.
Artists Heal PH was created by Nancy Mungcal, Michelle Mungcal and Neysa Bowers (sisters) to help support Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts in the Philippines.
A pop-up shop of art + goods, Artists Heal PH will be open from November 28 - December 31. All net proceeds will be donated to benefit The International Rescue Committee.
Take a sec. to check out the great work on there. Its a mix of mediums and prices.

The story of a courageous young woman who was terminal and now has a fighting chance to live, thanks to an entirely new way to treat cancer. Meet Stephanie Lee.
Esquire’s feature of the story on their site.
Stephanie Lee is a thirty-six year old Iraq-war widow with two children who has been diagnosed with terminal colon cancer. She is an extraordinary woman, and the subject of a story in Esquire magazine about her fight to live and the unprecedented efforts of a group of pioneering cancer specialists to save her. Stephanie is unable to work as she copes with chemo therapy and recovers from major surgery in late October, and her two daughters, ages eighteen and eight, are her principal caregivers. Please donate to help support Stephanie and her family and to contribute toward her daughters’ future education. Stephanie’s full story: http://www.esquire.com/patient-zero-1213
A fund has been started for Stephanie and her family.

Last month I traveled down to Mississippi to photograph Stephanie Lee, an extraordinary person that is currently battling stage four cancer. I then photographed Eric Schadt in NYC, a mathematician and biologist, who is helping treat Stephanie with some cutting edge science.
What a special opportunity I was given to help tell this story. Thank you Alison Unterreiner and Mark Warren.
And to Stephanie Lee, I can’t thank her enough for letting me into her life to photograph her and her family.
