“On Wings of Hope”, the documentary that I filmed in Afghanistan last year, just earned me a spot among the 20 Best of ASMP photographers in 2013. I’m humbled and honored to be included in this fine group of amazing photographic professionals and want to congratulate all past and present finalists.

Here is an excerpt of the interview:

Pascal Depuhl is awarded "Best of ASMP 2013" for "On Wings of Hope"

“On Wings of Hope, a short documentary telling the story of an aid agency that provides air transportation to all humanitarian organizations in Afghanistan. 

Pascal Depuhl had been creating motion projects with his clients for only six months when he went to Afghanistan to film the short documentary On Wings of Hope, to tell the story of an aid agency that provides air transportation to all the humanitarian organizations within the country.

“Afghanistan is an amazingly beautiful place to film in, but the environments of extreme cold (25° below) and altitude (10,000 feet) make shooting challenging,” says Depuhl. “This is the first motion project I produced without following a script or a storyboard, making it a very formidable task and a great learning experience as I edited the story.”ASMP: How long have you been in business?
Pascal Depuhl: I’ve been a professional photographer since 1988 …”
