~~ 12 months since the end of the largest Ebola outbreak in history and local heroes that played key roles in bringing the outbreak to an end, like gravedigger James Hamilton, seem long forgotten. ~~
November 7th 2016 marks one year since the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone was declared over. At 11am in Sierra Leone a 3-minute silence is taking place to remember the lives that were lost during this time.
Last year we produced this short video with SMAC Sierra Leone to celebrate the efforts of the Ebola response workers in reaching zero cases.
Just spent a few days travelling around Sierra Leone with Marie Stopes International. Marie Stopes International are reaching some of the most remote locations in Sierra Leone to deliver much needed antenatal care, family planing, and women's health services.

Took the DJI Phantom 3 Professional up over the east of Freetown to capture this shot today.
Just finished this film in Sierra Leone for The Guardian exploring the tradition of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). Not an easy topic to discuss but a very important one.
A few months ago I travelled to Kailahun with Child To Child and local partner Pikin To Pikin to photograph some of their Ebola recovery projects. This blog by Keziah Gbondo talks about her journey back to Sierra Leone's first Ebola hotspot
Filmed the amazingly talented Daniel Bangura as he covered a couple a Sam Smith tracks. Check out the #FreetownUncut youtube page for the other videos.
Waiting for the clouds to pass so decided to try out the interval function on the Sony FS7. Shot slog2 @ 4k

Today we were out with #TeamSurvive and Africa United filming Ebola Survivors around Freetown. The project is celebrating Ebola survivors and hopes to help promote positive integration of survivors back into their communities after they have beat this virus.
The project is the next instalment from Africa United ... the first campaign #WeveGotYourBack celebrated the often overlooked healthcare workers that are working tirelessly to beat Ebola. The first video can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Af4Ld1jIteE
A visit to the Ebola cemetery just outside of Makeni in Sierra Leone was a harsh reminder of the effect that Ebola is having on Sierra Leone. Many of us just hear the numbers every day - case numbers and deaths - but all of these numbers are real people with real families that have been torn apart. Until we get to zero cases Ebola continues to be a threat to Sierra Leone and the world.
Out and about in Freetown today filming pledges for the national Zero Ebola campaign with SMAC.
