World War II Vets Arrival - 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.
Upcoming Flights:
Depart:        Friday, 4/18 
Arrival:        Sunday, 4/20 (Easter Sunday)

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

Requirements:  

Must be able to be at the PSHF booth at SeaTac no later than 8:30am on 4/18 and 5/30 (12:25 departure)
Must be able to be at Seatac on 4/20 and 6/1 no later than 11:45a (1:40p arrival)
Welcome Home Celebration, taking place in the Atrium, will conclude at approximately 3:30pm

Photographs taken during these events may be used in various ways, including, but not limited to:

PSHF marketing materials (including website, brochures/flyers, picture book, PPT presentation, etc.)
Memory books for the veterans and their guardians
DVD for the veterans and their guardians

    Anyone want to carpool from somewhere in or near SeaTac to the airport then share the cost of parking at the airport? I am coming from Tacoma.

      I am heading to the airport now. Sorry we missed connections. I think there's a delay between when a message is posted and when meetup actually puts the message on their website

    To confirm, photographers are asked to meet tomorrow, Sunday, at 12:45p in the Atrium. The gentleman to ask for is Steve Talkington - he will have a Puget Sound Honor Flight shirt/sweatshirt on and look to be directing people. :) Thanks!

    I just got out of the hospital and feel really bummed that I can't make this shoot.

  • J G.

    Just to confirm, the meet time for this event has changed to 12:45?

    April 19, 2014

  • Denise

    UPDATE: 540p 4/14/14. The location for the 4/20/14 photographers meet up has been changed. Please meet at 12:45p on the main concourse, behind the SWA ticket counter, near the Pilot House Restaurant. Some of you will be going to the SWA ticket counter with a PSHF rep to secure gate passes, while others will be given info, and head down to the Atrium. Thank you so much for your time and efforts. This will be quite an experience for everyone involved...especially the veterans who know nothing of this welcome home celebration!
