Changing Tides Fundraiser

Just a few short weeks ago, a great surf shop in Portland, Leeward Surf, closed its doors. I’m not a surfer, but I am very plugged in to the surf community in the area. I was sad to hear that this hub for community was closing. I’ve had the chance to photograph several events at the shop over the past year. It has always been a fantastic experience. In this post you’ll see images I captured during a fundraising event benefiting Changing Tides. Learn more about the organization here.

Changing Tides Foundation was born from the simple idea that the world would be a better place if we were all given the opportunity to give back. Established in 2016, by a group of water women and adventurers, we feel it is our calling to help others. We do this by teaming up with local organizations globally to raise awareness and address social, environmental, health and safety concerns in the places we visit, because together we are better.
