The Hanson brothers have led programs for us in Costa Rica, Spain, Peru and California. David and Michael have the rare ability to push participants beyond their comfort zones in a way that’s both supportive and fun. It’s clear that they love exploring, storytelling and sharing that curiosity with others.
Brothers Michael and David Hanson are two of the finest and funniest photographers I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with! I love their versatility; they have the ability to shoot a clean, lit commercial image, a gripping and visually diverse editorial story, or to capture an emotional or intimate portrait. Too often now, photographers stay on the outside, snapping shots of facades or performers while traveling, but Michael and David get inside the subjects’ lives to capture moments and make you feel like you know the person and were there.
When it comes to capturing the essence of place through photography, film, and words, David and Michael Hanson are total pros. Their style of storytelling is thoughtful, stirring, and soulful all at once. They’ve traveled the world in search of the most interesting people and places for some of the country’s best magazines and digital media brands. It’s rare to find two people as knowledgeable, adventurous, fun-loving, and downright good as these two guys.
