A Shining Past Student

One of Shoot Cameras Not Guns' first students and good friends (before we were even called Shoot Cameras Not Guns, actually) has really become an amazing photographer. His work is beautiful and intimate and best of all, he lives in the area he shoots. He understands the people and therefore can gain trust and access with some very interesting and significant cultures.

Hong Sar primarily documents the lives of migrant workers along the Thai/Burma (Myanmar) border. YOU CAN SEE HIS WORK HERE

And here are some of my recent favorites. If you need a photographer in Southeast Asia, make sure to hire him. Keep documenting, Hong Sar!

More Graphic Design

Here's a collage of some photos from Kenya with the new logo.
This piece will go out to all contributors to the Kenya trip.
They will also receive sweet Shoot Cameras Not Guns die-cut stickers!
To get one, donate $10 or more to the project!

New Logo!

Shoot Cameras Not Guns has a new logo! Check it out!

This design will probably be simplified in the future, but we're super excited to have a working logo that pretty much explains what we do.

This is a photo I took of my first manual camera, a sweet old metal-bodied Nikon 35mm film camera that I took many awesome photos with!
These days it doesn't get out much, but it's where it all started.
The gun crosshairs obviously represent, well, shooting cameras. Not guns.
