CALLING ALL VOLUNTEERS! LARGE PHOTO SHOOT FOR BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB!
Hi Photo group! (and their families and friends cause this is for anyone and EVERYONE interested! You don?t have to be a photographer or partake in this!)
WOW I?m so excited to tell you all about this opportunity! I?ve been talking to the Boys and Girls club and they need our help.
They will be holding a family day based idea for all their families. What they are doing is offering families a chance to have a family portrait taken. Many of their families are unable to afford to have a picture taken of their family and as we all know this is a very important part of family history and unity. There are many families that will never have pictures of their family without this great offer the boys and girls club is providing for them.
There will be media coverage for this event so it is a great chance to get your name and pictures out there. It is also a fabulous chance to get experience. You can add this to your resume as volunteer work/experience for both your basic resume as well as photographer resume.
And most of all IT?LL BE FUN!!
What can you do?
We are looking for 10-15 photographers that are able to take the family portraits. With this we are looking for persons able to donate their time and skills to position, light and photograph each family in a timely manner. There will be MANY families to photograph so it?s important you know how to work with efficiency and accuracy. This is a great chance to get your pictures and name out there. In past events the families would take contact information and spread the word to family and friends that can afford to hire you for your services. We also need at least 2 photographers who can specifically take families with small children, as they take that extra special touch. (So bring cards and information if you want future jobs!)
What else can you do?
Don?t feel comfortable being the photographer but still want to be involved? Well that?s GREAT we are also looking for persons to assist the photographers. For this we need persons able to follow the directions of the photographer to move lights, hold light meters, change background, all the extras that will help the photographer move with speed and accuracy. (A great chance to experience and watch the procedures and of course you can add this to your resume too!)
AND THERE?S MORE YOU CAN DO TOO!!
