Photograph the Red Wings Alumni Game

  • December 13, 2013 · 7:00 PM

Hi Shutterbugs,

I am looking for some help to capture images at the Carhartt and Red Wings alumni game this year.  I work at Carhartt and have been asked to take candid shots of the game, audience and players but it is hard to be everywhere at once.  

This is a great opportunity to practice capturing action shots, close ups, audience reactions and images of some former hockey stars. Some of the players also come out to do autographs which offer some great close up shots.  All images are yours to use as you want and I would just ask for a copy for Carhartt and MORC to use and share in publicizing the event.

Carhartt has sponsored this hockey game for 9 years to support the Macomb Oakland Regional Center (http://www.morcinc.org/) so your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

We will meet inside to the left of the main entrance doors.  There is no cost for entry and I will email my contact information to those willing to help me out.

Additional information about the event is on Facebook at:

Others are welcome to come and attend.  We want a great turnout as all proceeds go to charity!

Thanks!

Lisa

    One last update... The videographer from MORC shared the following with me:

    Hi Lisa:
    Just wanted to say thanks to you and your intrepid photographers for shooting the great photos of the Carhartt game to benefit MORC. I just saw your site and wanted to take the opportunity to express my gratitude. You guys were everywhere. The event helped many people, including some of the ones in your photos. Check it out on YouTube if you get a chance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxH2te...
    Again, thanks for helping our people. Joe Dzenowagis

    Thank you again for making this event a night to remember for many.

      Hi Lisa, did you get my message yesterday about where to get the photos?

      December 15, 2013

    • Lisa S

      No Scott - I didn't see an email from you yet. Did you send it to my work address? Or maybe it was caught in one of the many spam filters I have... Sorry - send the link again and I will be sure to include your pictures with my posting on Facebook

    I am sorry but I am not able to attend, I made other plans since I was a couple down on the waitlist even at late as yesterday. Please allow someone else to take my spot. Have fun everyone, I am looking forward to seeing a lot of great photos!

      Actually, I was already locked in for one of the original slots so I'll be there tonight.

    Oh noticed there is a waitlist now. :(

    If I could get a ride I would love to help. I have never done action shots but would love to try. I live in Dundee if somebody could pick me up and bring me home.

  • Lisa S

    Wow everyone I am overwhelmed with the responses!

    Thank you all for your support. I wish I could have everyone out to take pictures but it would be a bit overwhelming for the event. If you are on the waitlist, there are many other Red Wings alumni games that are for charity - you can check them out at: http://redwings.nhl.com/club/page.htm?id=83569. For those who will be attending - please keep your RSVP up to date and change it if you cannot make it so someone on the waitlist can join.

    Thanks!
