Our Help-Portrait event was a success. It was last Saturday at The Family Resource Center in Paradise right across the street from our studio. We had 3 local photographers and 17 volunteers. We took photographs of 110 people. It was so rewarding and some of the families had never had a professional portrait. We are already planning next year.
Wow time has flown by this year. I never seem to think of things to write on this blog when I have time. Guess I need to keep a recorder by my bed because that is when I come up with topics I’d like to discuss. I’m always encouraging my clients to have a blog that feeds into their Facebook which then feeds into Twitter and Linkedin. I just never seem to find time to write in my own.
Our studio is in the midst of our busy season with the High School Senior Contract and Sports. We have an exciting project that is coming up on December 4th. We are planning to participate with a community of photographers, coming together across the world to use their photography skills to give back to their local community. Help-Portrait is a wonderful event that will be held on December 4th 2010, photographers around the world will be grabbing their cameras, finding people in need and taking their picture. When the prints are ready, the photographs get delivered. We are excited about this prospect and hope to involve many local photographers both professional and hobbyist. I will keep you posted.Let us know if you are interested in joining us.
Tonight I’m off to a Rotary dinner to honor members who have given back to the community. I love the Rotary Club and it has done so much for our community and around the world. If anyone would like to join me some Thursday at Noon to find our what it is all about let me know. Happy Thursday!
I finally have finished the first of our series of slideshows of upcoming high school seniors of 2011 for our Photography Studio on the Skyway. These photos were taken in July and August. More to come! This file is a web resolution file controlled by Animoto.com. It isn’t as high a quality as I would like but there is no way to control. They do have higher resolution available for watching on TV which is very cool.
Constantly learning new technology and tricks! Too much fun. I learned about a new toolbar from DigitalFamily.com check it out! Amazing tutorials on creating websites. I can translate my page into another language. Very cool! Powered by Wibiya.
