Haiti Stories

We are proud to share with you our new website entirely devoted to the Haiti Stories project, our on-going series of documentary photography and videos from Haiti.

Please visit the website at:


We have several plans for the future of the project, including many more video episodes we are currently already working on, and a photography book coming soon. Keep checking for the latest and greatest.

One Year.

And so it is. We managed to survive our first year of existence, thanks to all your love. From starting out with an insanely successful Kickstarter campaign, to working with non-profits, traveling and documenting some major events in Haiti, participating in conferences around the world, representing San Francisco in Iceland with a group of amazingly talented people, and much much more, it was a year of adventures, excitement, challenges, and new discoveries.

We couldn't be more appreciative of everything you've done for us, the support you've given us and the love you've shared for our work throughout the year. We are so excited for 2014 and for whatever comes our way creatively throughout this new year, and we'd like you to join us in this new adventure.


We already have some major things planned, including a biking trip through Zambia in July... but there will be plenty of other details soon. So come on in. Send us a hello. And let's work together.

One more happy client!

We just got a testimonial from Jit Vaitha, co-founder of Rise2Shine. After working with Rise2Shine for the last month on a little film about their amazing work in Haiti: I am one of the co-founders of the children's charity Rise2shine and I would like to say a VERY BIG thank you to Afonso Salcedo and Sutro Studios. The level of quality that that was created from the limited footage that I provided is nothing short of amazing. Also, the level of customer service and attention we received from Afonso was outstanding. He kept me updated at every single stage of the process, and he replied to all of my emails and requests, literally, immediately. You can't go wrong with Sutro Studios. Thank you for your vision and your passion.

We have been working incredibly hard over the past month or so with the non-profit Rise2Shine. We were approached by them a while back about helping them create a video that showed their outstanding efforts to improve lives for children and families in Haiti. As soon as we did research on their work, and saw all the footage we could work with, we just had to say yes. We were so touched by the amazing things they are creating every day in Haiti, to help some of the most impoverished people on the planet, from providing health care, education and food. We knew we could create something powerful. If you haven't seen the video, the full film is about eight minutes long.

You can see it here. Make sure you check out the rest of our film work through these pages. We're working on some more exciting things to come soon.
