Hi, I’m Israel. I’m currently travelling Australia with my wife and two kids, on a mission to Transform Children’s Health in Australia, One Lunchbox at a Time.

I am also a family portrait photographer, and I’m available for commissions while we’re travelling. Commissions start at $1000, and you can book me via email. See my brochure for details.

I am a depression survivor, and have given seminars, written articles and given interviews about my journey into and out of depression – some on behalf of PANDA. I believe mental health needs all the awareness it can get. I also participate in Fluro Friday whenever I can.

For a few years, I produced and wrote over 600 daily Inspirational Quotographs and accompanying essays – about life, challenges, work, depression, art and love. Explore the archive here.

I occasionally write essays on my blog, but more frequently I can be found writing and producing material for The Root Cause, and hanging out with the three greatest loves of my life.

Welcome. It’s great to meet you.
