Voice for the Voiceless

15 Dec 2017, Posted by silentimages in Blog, Refocus

At Silent Images one of our oldest taglines is “give a voice to the voiceless.” When we visited a school in India with hundreds of children laughing and playing and speaking to us all at once, it’s impossible imagine that in Indian society these children…

Hope

In Cambodia, Silent Images witnessed many tragic situations – the hardest to comprehend was children being sold into human trafficking because their families were stuck in the cycle of poverty. Children as young as 3-years-old were and are being sold to buisnesses or to brothals….

Burmese Morning

27 Oct 2017, Posted by silentimages in Blog

One crisp morning in the spring of 2010, before the China sun had a chance to rise, a missionary friend and I made our way into Burma. For months he had been telling me about the minority ethic group, the Kachin in Burma, and their…

Celebrating 10 Years

20 Oct 2017, Posted by silentimages in Blog

It is hard to believe that Silent Images has been around for 10 years now.  It seems like just yesterday, that I was sitting in Sudan dreaming up a way to use my camera to serve others. I have recently found myself doing a lot…

A Timely Lecture at UNC

13 Oct 2017, Posted by silentimages in Blog

In the beginning, I thought my greatest joy would come from taking photos. However, I have come to find out that my greatest joys have come from developing other young photographers to take photos (or videos). I will never forget in 2010, when my alma…

My Heart’s in the Wrong Place

22 Sep 2017, Posted by silentimages in Blog, Refocus

I was given advice… “Now that you’re a father, watch out for dad bod.” There are plenty of blogs on eating healthy/diets, but don’t worry… this isn’t one. Can I just say that it’s flat out expensive to eat healthy? For my family, we recently…

Learning How to be Flexible

18 Aug 2017, Posted by silentimages in Blog, Refocus

One thing I’ve learned about working in video production is that you have to be flexible. Flexible meaning: being ready for very little actually happening as planned. The organizational side of my personality loves post-it notes, lists, and having the peace of mind from having…

A Stranger’s Prayer

28 Jul 2017, Posted by silentimages in Blog, Refocus

Since I grew up as a missionary kid in Bolivia, I feel at home when I hear the Spanish language surrounding me. I think in a way, I breathe easier when I’m in a pace of life that is as relational as it is in…

The Art of Presentness

07 Jul 2017, Posted by silentimages in Blog, Refocus

I’ve got a lot going on in my life, and having a laundry list of things to do each day for the next couple weeks has led me to live in a sliver of the future that doesn’t currently exist. All too frequently I find…
