We believe that all youth should have the 21st-century technology skills necessary to be competitive in college and future careers. C4K's mission is to provide youth from low-income households in Charlottesville with supportive mentoring, a creative out-of-school learning environment, access to industry-level technology, project-based learning and youth leadership opportunities.

C4K is working on amplifying and increasing the stories they tell about their incredible youth members. In order to do so effectively, they need excellent photographs! They are developing a pool of local photographers who would be willing to donate their time to C4K in conducting a one or two-hour photo shoot at C4K, either as a one-off or once or twice a year.

We will have 4 shooting dates, and need 2 photographers + myself for each date. The shoots are very short lasting only 90 minutes each. You only need to RSVP once, and then leave a comment in the comments section to pick which date you might want.

• October 29 – 5:00 to 6:30
• October 30 – 5:00 to 6:30
• November 5 – 5:00 to 6:30
• November 6 – 5:00 to 6:30

Each photographer will be given a shot list (easy stuff), and the folks at Computer4Kids like these style of photos, so we’ll want to capture something similar (inspiration: I’ll be there for every shoot, and will assist other photographers.

C4K’s mission is to empower youth (7-12th grade) from low-income families to be prepared with the 21st-century skills required to attend college, pursue meaningful careers, and ultimately, break the cycle of generational poverty. Helping out with some photography will mean a lot to this organization, and will do something wonderful for our community here in Charlottesville.

I hope to see you there!
