Having Access To The Outdoors Matters



It's #National #Park Week, and while many people are going to the #parks, #camping, #hiking, and enjoying the great #outdoors, many National Parks #trails, #amenities, #tours #residencies and #workshops are not fully #accessible to #disabled #photographers like me.


I created The Disabled Photographer Project & my How Accessible Is Accessible series because having #access matters! I got tired of not having full access to things, especially #outdoors, so I decided to do something about it! I am a #disabled #photographer who is here to join the fight & help bring #change because Disabled people matter! We have the right to being #outside, just like everyone else to enjoy the #healing #energy and #beauty #nature offers us, and ADA is the law!


I hope that by acknowledging the parks that have been working hard to make everything accessible for everyone, and what they have been doing to be #ADA compliant, that other parks will follow their lead by example!


I am aware of the fact that my #mission is a big challenge, but I am I'm willing to fight for my #equal #rights, like many disabled people before me have! I know I am not alone in this fight to bring awareness to #accessibility issues, because one billion people, that's 15% of the world's #population experience some form of #disability!


There may be some things that are accessible, but it's not enough! Having some accessibility is not the same as having full accessibility! I'm doing everything I can from making videos, writing blogs, and taking photographs to help bring awareness in a positive light, in hopes of building a #community, while bringing more awareness and change.
