Hi, I’m Israel. I’m currently travelling Australia with my wife and two kids as The Root Cause, empowering kids to make better food choices. That’s me up top, with the three loves of my life. (I’m the one with the very short hair on the right. Just, you know, in case.)
For a few years, I produced and wrote over 600 daily Inspirational Quotographs and accompanying essays – about life, challenges, work, depression, art and love. I’m immensely proud of this part of my body of work. Explore the archive here.
I spent 12 years as a full-time professional family portrait and wedding photographer. Family portrait or wedding commissions are now really selectively accepted these days, start at $4000, and are best discussed with me via email. See my brochure for more 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.
I very occasionally write essays on my blog, and lately I’ve started blogging daily about the writing my memoir From Normal to Nomad. I’m also heavily involved in The Root Cause, and hanging out with the three greatest loves of my life.
(See “My family” above.)
Here’s what I’m up to /Now.
Welcome. It’s great to meet you.
