Martin Luther King Day of Service - Girard College

As announced at our December 2013 monthly meeting, this will be our second year as photo volunteers. We look forward to working together as a group. All participants will be tasked to capture the spirit of the event being held at Girard College (plus others locations in Philly to be announced), in remembrance of Dr. Martin Luther King.

On the 51st anniversary of the historic 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom led by Dr. King, 110,000 volunteers are expected to serve in some 1,500 projects in the January 20th annual Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service, the largest King Day event in the nation.

Global Citizen organizes the Greater Philadelphia Martin Luther King Day of Service and runs MLK365, a year-round program that promotes sustainable civic engagement, ongoing volunteer opportunities, and educational programs.

We will separate into groups and cover the event, lead photographers will be assisting those seeking instruction.

This will be a great opportunity to begin learning the art of candid photography.

All members are highly encouraged to participate, especially those who are experienced and willing to take on the role of lead photographers.

More details will follow as we get closer to the event.

    I enjoyed being with a fellow photographer and meeting others.

    I thought that it was great! Everybody was really friendly, and there were lots of opportunities to photograph participants (and art work, activities, etc.). I'm really glad that I came.

    If I am unable to meet you guys at 8 at Girard College, where can I meet you later? I come from King of Prussia and will have to rely on bus to get there, hence I am worried I may be late.

    • Vickie M. F.

      Thanks, Tony -- also, could you please send a few details about the types of projects we would be photographing and to whom we would be sending the photos? I missed the beginning of the recent meeting, so I do not know this information.

    • Tony J.

      Vickie, these will be candid shots, of your choosing, capturing whatever of this event moves you. All instructions for submissions of work will be sent, via email, after the conclusion of the event.

    Not absolutely sure that I'm coming at this point....my husband and I have some things that we should do, but I may still try to come for a while. Could you give some more specifics about what kinds of activities we'd be photographing? Also, where would latecomers meet? Thanks.

    What is the earliest that it would be useful to arrive at Girard College? There will probably be things to photograph as part of set-up, registration, etc. And is there parking at or near Girard College?

    Is there a phone # we may call when we get there to find out where everyone is?

    January 17, 2014

    • Tony J.

      Theresa, phone contact info will go out, via email, to all registered participants this weekend.

    Is there any PPL member going to the event at 8:00am coming through the G-Ho/21st & South St. area? Bus service to Girard College is minimal and would appreciate a ride. Gladly chip in for gas or parking. Thx!

    January 15, 2014

    • Tony J.

      Rob, I can give you a lift. Email me for details.

    I will come in with the late group. Working a shoot the night before and will be very tired early in the morning.

  • Jano C.

    I will need to leave no later than 9:30am - my day job.

    December 23, 2013

    • Tony J.

      Jano, you may want to reconsider this as things don't really get started until almost 9am. In any case, we would love to have you with us!

      January 14, 2014

    • Jano C.

      I just saw this - At an earlier meeting Theresa said to get there as early as 7:00am so I thought it would work. Sorry I will have to miss it this year.

    Available 10 am into the late afternoon. Comfortable shooting solo, as part of a team or as team lead, outdoors, indoors, large or small events. Looking forward to participating. Sorry, just not able to there at 8 am.

    January 14, 2014

    • Tony J.

      Grace, a meet-spot for those coming in late will be posted soon - as will contact info. Glad to have you with us.

    Please add Tammi and I to the team.

      Looking forward to it Spencer!

  • Vickie M. F.

    I probably won't be able to make it until a little later in the morning, so I'll need to know how to reach someone from the group to find out where everybody is. Also, I'm not sure yet whether or not my husband can make it.

    January 12, 2014

    • Tony J.

      A meet-spot for those who are coming in late will be forthcoming.
