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.
WHY WE ARE SHOOTING:
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: http://drp.mk/QX6Sv4KgpN). 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!
