Kate Havercroft and Colby BrownThe Giving Lens is an organization with a vision to see our three passions come together for a better world: travel, photography, and giving back. We do this by running one-of-a-kind international travel photography workshops, all of which are lead by professional photographers: during the trip we volunteer our time and talents to a local, grassroot Non-Profit; then we do workshops, shooting at once-in-a-lifetime locations most only dream of. We share the images, and the profits, with the NGO, and our participants return home, changed forever. It’s an adventure; a journey; and a vision.

I figured that there would ... Read More

My trip with TGL to Nicaragua went beyond all expectations that I had. I am a new photographer who before the trip was afraid to take my camera off of automatic. Throughout the week, I found myself having so much fun learning how to shoot on manuel with the Nicaraguan teens I was partnered with that I forgot all the ... Read More
