When your vision becomes a reality, how will you tell your story? I’m a commercial photographer and photojournalist based in Portland, Oregon, since 1991. I specialize in commercial location photography for businesses. The majority of this work is for architectural, corporate, editorial, and public relations clients, and appears in a variety of print and electronic media. You can view samples online at: www.adambacher.com. Since 2007 I’ve been taking a month each year to devote my time towards humanitarian missions. Three trips have taken me to Rwanda, for a project documenting the countries recovery from the genocide in 1994, which claimed the lives of one-million people in the course of 100 days. Images and stories from the places I visited are featured on my blog site at: www.bachersblog.com. This November, I’m going to Haiti for 4 weeks, to help two non-profits working tirelessly to save and rebuild lives following the earthquake in 2010. As well as donating my still and video images, I plan to create a traveling print exhibit, and a multi-media educational presentation to build awareness and remind us of Haiti's needs. If you’re interested in project please see this link: http://igg.me/p/44329?a=249927&i=shlk My commercial work makes this humanitarian effort possible. I exhibit and speak nationally, offering a provocative visual and journalistic insight into contemporary Rwanda and the recovery, reconciliation, and reconstruction of the of the country. This message of hope, peace, and diversity, has been enthusiastically received at peace conferences, corporate gatherings, and in public schools. Specialties All aspects of location photography including: Architectural, Corporate, Editorial, People, Public Relations, Travel and Photojournalism. .

    Hey,Adam why are the kids playing with tiers?
    These photo’s are so amazing.

    • Adam Bacher

      Tires and wheel rims from bicycles are common things for kids in developing areas of the world to play with. Something I see a lot of is keeping a thin tire or rim rolling and upright by guiding it with a stick. I’ve tried it a few times and it’s pretty fun, and very challenging going up or down hills.

    Hi Adam. These photographs are truly amazing. You have captured these people in their daily lives, so much so that I feel as if I’m there in Africa, experiencing what you are. I can’t wait to see more.
    Safe travels!

    That push a tire game is way harder than I thought it would be! I don’t think I ever had a smile on my face when I did it, I was always struggling so much to keep it upright! Yet these children seem to be having the time of their life :)
