In partnership with

Drew would like to thank his sponsors, some of the most renowned, reliable, and quality brands in the world, for their continued support of his work in the past, present, and future. A special thank you to Hasselblad, Leica, Lowepro and Hahnemuhle who have all helped through their generous and sustained patronage.

“At the core of my practice is my firm belief in the importance of documenting the incredible people and cultures in our world, especially those at risk of slipping away unsung.”

Giving Back

While preserving places on camera and film is at the core of Drew’s practice, Drew is also invested in helping to maintain the welfare of the locations and people he works with through charitable giving. Often Drew’s practice involves places so remote that there is limited access to necessities like healthcare. For this reason, a portion of proceeds from Drew’s book Slow Road to China, documenting an isolated part of Nepal, have funded a healthcare facility in the region for one year. Another ongoing initiative is with the The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. 100% of the net proceeds from Drew’s book Sail: Majesty at Sea are donated to this non-profit organization.
