Through work that I had done in Cambodia, I was given the excellent opportunity to fly to Arusha, Tanzania and photograph marketing images for a truly innovative and forward thinking social enterprise that is providing residential home solar services to the 85% of Tanzanians that are without access to the power grid. Solar is cheaper, cleaner and more sustainable than the kerosene and diesal alternatives to those living without access to the grid. It was a truly inspiring trip, and I am grateful to everyone at Off-Grid Electric for the work they do and the opportunity to collaborate on their marketing. More photos on my website.
