This photographer is a beautifully talented wedding photographer but his talent lies much deeper than that. Just a few years back, he and his wife gave up nearly everything they owned to utilize their photography storytelling talents to tell the stories and bring awareness to individuals or communities that may be less fortunate. With his video and photography skills, this man is changing the world one photo at a time with his charity work and is also teaching others to do the same. Meet my dear friend, Benjamin Edwards.
After many trips to Uganda, Congo, Nicaragua and many other places, Benjamin, along with his friend, Kevin Kubota and others started an incredible resource for what I believe to be the most meaningful education. They call it “Workshops With Purpose”. WWP was founded to equip media professionals with opportunities to grow their craft while serving in a global environment, immersing themselves in other cultures and realizing the power of relationships and storytelling in their business and personal life. Benjamin and his partners have now dedicated their educational resources to this amazing purpose of inspiring others to change lives all over the world. And if you take a look at his work and the stories he tells with his charitable work, you may just be inspired to join in.
