From Portland it takes 27 hours to get to Kigali, the capital of Rwanda (21 in the air, with two 3 hour layovers in Chicago and Brussels) . My legs did fine, however I’m still averse to sitting. The following photos are from the morning clouds over Belgium, and an amazing sunset over the south of Sudan (it really was that red).

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.

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.
All aspects of location photography including: Architectural, Corporate, Editorial, People, Public Relations, Travel and Photojournalism.
Adam…this is awsome. I am going to share it with residents. I will be looking forward to your bogs and will check them daily. Prayers are with you. I put you on several list. God Bless
That is the coolest sunset I have ever seen. The sun actually looks like a big ball of fire there other times it just looks bright. It almost looks like a painting but I know that it is really real. It also sets just the perfect glow on the clouds. It is so amazeing!
