Costa Rica with Rustic Pathways

A friend of mine from college, Justin Kase Conder is a mad man and one helluva a photographer. He also has the coolest job ever. He's head photographer for Rustic Pathways, which offers travel programs all over the world to high school students. Just last week he summited Mt. Kilimanjaro and this week he's on safari in the Serengeti. Yes, his job rocks.

Justin Kase shared a little bit of his dream job with a few of his colleagues — me included. The Rustic Pathways organization sent me to beautiful Costa Rica for nine days to photograph the activities and community service work of 35 high school kids. Thanks Kase. I guess now I owe you.

  2. Ha!! By the looks of these photos hon, I just might owe you!

    More than happy to have had you girl, you wield the camera unlike any lady I know and it's apparent in the work you produce.

    Ya know... I've heard that some of the pics from Australia are pretty much suckin ass this year, will just have to see what we can do to rectify that next year ( ;
