September 2016 saw travel to the Central Visayas region of the Philippines to document resilience and capacity building efforts in two starkly different communities.  Cebu's dense urban footprint presents a number of challenges to first responders.  Olango island, only a short boat ride away from Cebu, is a very rural island with hardly any infrastructure.  

One of the goals of this trip was to deliver great production value for my client while traveling extremely light.  With just carry-on bags, I was able to deliver video and still photography as well as aerial visuals for added context and impact.  Using the latest technology allowed me to move quickly, produce more and better content, and reduce production costs.  What client wouldn’t want to hear this?

Interested in how I packed for this trip?  Stay tuned!
