Big Surprise


Elementary teachers in Washington react to a display of school supplies they received in August, just days before the school year began.

The great thing about making pictures for World Vision is that we are like family — our donors, the warehouse staff who deliver the supplies, the school staff, and the volunteers who set up the event. Teachers in this area often spend their own money on supplies for their students. For some of them, receiving these supplies meant a legitimate burden would be lifted.

The reveal in this scene happened fast, and I wanted to capture this moment even if I had to sacrifice a few others. So I ran ahead of them, squeezed behind the table displaying the school supplies and gifts, aimed my telephoto lens around a few volunteers in my view, and snagged a few frames of the teachers oohing and ahhing.

Finding these fleeting moments of joy inspires me.
