World War II Vets Departure - Photogs Needed

Puget Sound Honor Flight, a 501c3 organization that, at no cost, flies Western Washington WWII veterans back to visit their memorial in Washington, D.C., is in need of photographers to capture the send off and return home celebrations for their upcoming trips.  We are looking for photographers for each of our upcoming flights (departing and arrival) to donate their time and end product to our cause.  We would like to have three (3) photographers to be on hand at SeaTac on the day of the departure, and 10 for the return home celebrations.  Two of the photogs on the departure day, and approximately four (4) on the return day, will also be provided gate access passes in order to escort the veterans to and from the gate, capturing photographs at every turn.

Departure:    Friday, 5/30
Arrival:        Sunday, 6/1

    I apologize that I haven't contacted you until now, but I was working out the details with Denise. I have a Dropbox account ([masked]) and if you could send your photos to me that way I would appreciate it. This is the way I would like all photos for the Honor Flight to be delivered to be included in the DVD and for the April trip I will need the edited and sized photos (2048 x XXX or XXX x 2048) by this Thursday 6pm. If you could let the other know that would be great. Thank you

    Thank you very much for your support! So glad you had such a good time. We will reach back out to you regarding uploading of your edited pictures, for the veterans view book. Hope you can make it to either the homecoming this Sunday, or the next trip on 5/30. We will put out another announcement to sign up soon. Thanks again!

    An absolutely incredible opportunity to spend time with some some amazing WWII veterans. It was an honor to capture images for this great organization and the true American Heroes.

    Since there are people on the wait list to want to do this, I am going to bow out.

    As a photographer and recent combat veteran with multiple overseas tours (Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan) I would love to participate in this event. Unfortunately I will be photographing a wedding in Atlanta for the second set of dates and would only be available for the first flight.

      Jeremy, this call-out is just for the first flight. I'll be doing a separate call-out for the next flight.
