In this episode Valerie talks with photographer John Peltier about working for non-profit organizations.
I’m an Air Force combat veteran and pilot by trade, serving for ten years. Towards the end of that ten years I wanted to see where else life could take me, so in 2012 I bought a 27-foot sailboat and sailed from North Carolina to the Caribbean. During that journey I accidentally stumbled upon a small island off the coast of Haiti. I was introduced to an NGO that has been helping improve educational and nutritional programs on this island. I had only photographed for environmental NGOs before because I just considered myself a landscape photographer, but the experience in Haiti really brought about a passion for documentary photography with humanitarian NGOs. I'm still involved with this organization today, other local & international nonprofits, and am an associate photographer at Photographers Without Borders. It took a couple decades, but I've finally discovered that my calling with photography is to help others. I call Lake Tahoe home and enjoy all of the year-round activities offered in this mountain paradise.
