My 1st Trophy: Reuters Mentorship Award for Hayley to Harrison

Oct 21, 2015

Last week, I attended the Eddie Adams Workshop, which was an incredible, life changing experience.  The lectures were inspiring and motivating, the portfolio reviews were invaluable, but I was most excited by the community of passionate photographers, editors, and artists who welcomed us with open arms. 

Through this experience, I had the opportunity to share Hayley to Harrison, a personal project that follows follows one transgender individual on his journey of transitioning from female to male. I began photographing Harrison in 2011 and have been documenting him since.

Unbeknownst to me, the workshop ended with an awards ceremony, gifting people with assignments for prestigious publications, camera equipment, and other awards.  It was here I was given my first trophy--an award for Hayley to Harrison.  I am excited to announce that Reuters will be publishing the story and helping me edit the past 4 years of images.  Can't wait to share the final product with you! Thank you to Eddie Adams, and all of the people who helped make the workshop possible - the Black Team, White Team, photographers, editors, producers, techs, and countless others that dedicated their time to helping us!
