Tom Fakler - Professional Photographer 

CITCNepal is honoured to have the support of critically acclaimed professional photographer Tom Fakler.  His stunning photographs have helped CITC to showcase the beauty and capture the way of life in rural Nepal.

“My primary photographic interest is capturing people’s emotions, and the elegance and raw beauty of humanity.”
"My passion for helping people is on a par with my love for travel and adventure and photography. Whether volunteering for NGOs in Nepal and Cambodia, climbing peaks in Swiss Alps, traveling through Jordan's Wadi Rum desert or exploring a market in Ho Chi Minh City, my interest is always the people I encounter—by appointment or by chance.
Since 2010, I have volunteered on several community development projects in Nepal and Cambodia, every one of them challenging and rewarding. I have been privileged to work with grass-roots organizers deeply committed to raising the standard of living and to building secure futures for the world’s children.
Many of my photographs are published in digital travel magazines, such as Anita's Feast, Getting on Travel, and FWT Magazine. My contributions—as images and articles—bring a unique perspective to the exploration of cultural traditions, local color and food ways around the world.
A freelance photographer and photojournalist, I accept assignments worldwide." - Tom Fakler www.tomfakler.com
