Kids. Kids Everywhere.


I agreed to help ISK (the International School of Kigali) with this year’s school photos — in part as a nice gesture, in part because I thought it would be good practice to run through a couple of hundred portraits in a day. It was a mixed blessing… Lots of great kids that were fun to shoot, and a handful of kids that made me want to throw my camera down in despair… I can’t imagine doing school photos for a living, being Mr. Happy Smiley day in and day out, adjusting shoulders, wiping off boogers and trying to get a shot that grandma and grandpa will want to proudly display on the mantle for 12 months.
