Portraits of Biveck

I’ve been on a photographic journey while here in Nepal and it looks like the people portraits are here to stay. Each time I’m drawn right back to portraiture no matter how much I want to swing into landscapes. I feel like I should start a series on portraits on young people. I love the personality they show in their choice of clothes, and their boldness and overall ease in front of cameras.  There’s something to be said of each one, because each person has their own personality. I met Biveck a few months ago over Christmas and was honored to be able to capture him at this single moment in time. Thanks for having me Biveck!

Maya Designs // Pokhara, Nepal

In the wee crack of dawn, few people roam the streets of Ranipauwa. Housewives sweep their homes as fathers and children remain asleep, stray dogs bark like no other and cocks crow to wake the day. During my recent November stay in Pokhara, I had the awesome chance one early morning to shoot photos for my friend Shonnie and her recently launched jewelry and accessories website, Maya Designs (in Nepali, “Love Designs”). Funds are dedicated towards the lives of exploited Nepali women to help them rise above poverty. I had an amazing time capturing some of the winter best from their fresh hand-made designs.

Shonnie is probably one of the coolest, most courageous women I have ever met. Our meeting was almost pure happenstance and the shoot one of my richest in recent memory. Maya Designs’ Nepali made goods available at www.mayaministries.com.au.

Daries of Nepal 02 // At the Tailor in Nakhitpot, Nepal

While in Kathmandu, one of my favorite things to do has been going to the local tailor with my friend Christina. She is one of the kindest people I have met and has a Nepali heart of gold. The other week we took some fabric to get our saris made 5 minutes down the street. Come visit!
