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.
