Bruce, along with William Vazquez, co-founded Camera Voyages, an organization of professional photographers who lead groups of photographers on immersive photographic travel experiences in exotic countries.

"As a photojournalist, I have been telling the poignant stories of the people I have met throughout my life through the lens of my camera. I also set up workshops to help other photographers learn how to communicate visual stories through their love of art and photography. William Vazquez and I have created Camera Voyages to introduce people to new areas of the world through the highly personal lens of the camera," says Bruce.
