AHDH, Inc. 57th Medical Mission Summer 2013 Hospital St. Joseph , Ridoré, LaVallée de Jacmel, Haiti

Our weekend in Jacmel at the Hotel Cap LaMandou is always a great time with lots of good food, good music, good friends and laughs. This is the time we change teams, one leaves and another crew joins in for the second half of the mission. Team 1 was the most photogenic I’ve ever worked with. In the group shot every eye is on my camera and rarely do I get that much cooperation from a large group. I’ve worked behind the scenes on movie sets and never did I get all eyes on my camera at the same time on the first take. You guys made my work so easy, Merci Beaucoup!

You may capture the images you want from this mission.

I love this image, everyone looks happy, mission complete.

About Jeane La Rance

My brother gave me my first camera when I was nine or ten years of age, he bought it in Europe. I don't remember much about the camera itself it was the pictures I couldn't get enough of, and that still holds true. My life is all about photography. In the beginning it was black and white film. I loved being in the darkroom nothing could compare to it and even though I swore I'd never go digital, I rarely shoot film anymore. I went to the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, NM for my Bachelors Degree. There I studied Documentary Photography, Cinematography and Post Production Editing. Later I attended Savannah College of Art and Design for a Masters Degree in the same fields of study, Photography and Moving Images.
