I am a Vancouver, Canada based photographer and Tether Tools Pro with 20 years of experience shooting commercial, fitness & lifestyle, celebrity and portraits. More so, I am a human with a good heart whose purpose and passion is to help others, and I need your help.

Like many others, the global pandemic had me feeling very uncertain. On the week of March 16, my scheduled work, along with most other plans, got postponed or cancelled, leaving me with no clear path. Social media became flooded with fear and negativity as COVID-19 swept around the world. 

At the same time, I saw another side. I watched communities coming together like never before, groups being formed on social media by heart-centered individuals uniting to help by doing things like picking up and delivering goods to those in quarantine.

Inspired to bring more positive content to social media, as I do believe that art can heal and so I use my photography to help others whenever I can. I decided to create storytelling imagery around our frontline workers – healthcare professionals, those providing our essential services, and all other good Samaritans risking infection to take care of us. These are the people I am the proudest to point my lens towards.

This is how Humans of Support was born. These are the stories of the unsung heroes, the people we need whose jobs suddenly entailed a new test of bravery, and now everyone has the opportunity to see how much they contribute to making the world a better place.

Fueled by the unified creative community, I am excited to see Humans of Support grow into something bigger. I look forward to watching it become its own entity, bringing with it smiles and hope.

So I asked my fellow creatives… who wants to join us in making the world a better place, by highlighting these truly selfless Humans Of Support. We are looking for heart-centered creatives.

With enough awareness and participation, we can turn Humans of Support into a beacon of positivity for people everywhere during these unprecedented times.

Humans of Support may have been my brain baby, it is having a team behind me that has made both this project and my work stronger.
