FCCP Group Members

This is a THANK YOU note to the members of the Florida Center for Creative Photography. FCCP is a group of the most talented, hardworking, patient, generous, happy, accommodating, biggest-hearted people I have ever had the pleasure to know. I've come to gatherings on several occasions looking for help, on diverse projects, in different forms, and not once have I been disappointed. When one member couldn’t help me, I was referred to another. When the community asks for help, FCCP is there in the blink of an eye. Time, energy, and materials are donated without a second thought. Last week I looked for a photographer for a woman who was getting married that Saturday; she has a young child and the wedding was being held at her sister's home due to lack of funds. The couple was depending on family and guests for photos. One of our newer members, Bob Broderick, stepped up, shot the wedding, and provided her with 308 incredible images the next day. The bride was thrilled that Bob came with 40 years of experience, but note that he was one of about two dozen that answered my call for assistance. People with all levels of experience volunteered to help this woman. I tried to get back to everyone personally, but my computer was down, and I was pecking away on my phone, so if I missed anyone, I am very sorry.


I realized a while back that FCCP has made an incredible, positive difference in my life, and for that, I am thankful. What came as a surprise was that so many of you wrote, with very little, to no experience, who were willing to go and give it a try so that this bride would have something. It made me aware that such a large number of us have learned, grown, and gained enough confidence in ourselves that we are willing to take some risks and put ourselves out there. That is a hard thing to do! The people in this group are giving back the gifts we have received, from each other, by helping others, with our camera. Thank you all, so very much!!!  And of course, thank you Jeff, because without you, NONE of this would have been possible.
