during the month of june, i spent 3 weeks criss-crossing the country, photographing the 15 finalists in the @ebay shine awards for the 2nd year running. the job is a whirlwind, tough at times to cram in all that travel, but ultimately super rewarding because i get to do what i love: meet people and make pictures.
i'll be featuring a few of my faves over the next few weeks, starting with the finalists in the every day heroes category, sellers who use a portion of their sales to give back to their communities.
elijah in madison hosts workshops, and donated bikes to the community, david in new jersey runs the business with his family and they sponsor a room at the @rmhc, and cori o'steen, the WINNER of this years awards is working to fund a residential recovery program in her own town.
congrats to all the finalists this year, it was awesome getting to work with you.
