We need at least 50 volunteers for this event. Even more would be helpful. We expect to serve[masked] clients throughout the day.
OK gang, we will be having an event on December 12, 2009 to volunteer for the Help Portrait movement. Here is a quick description from their website.
HELP PORTRAIT IS A MOVEMENT OF PHOTOGRAPHERS WHO ARE USING THEIR TIME, EQUIPMENT AND EXPERTISE TO GIVE BACK TO THOSE WHO ARE LESS FORTUNATE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON.
We will be getting use of a rather substantial space at Regency Mall in Racine (probably the vacant anchor store space in the front and center of the mall.) The event will be taking place all day on December 12th. We are hoping to get as many photographers involved in this as possible. We are asking photographers to commit to at least *ONE* three hour block on Saturday (9am-noon, noon-3pm, 3pm-6pm, 6pm-9pm.) We will need help not only in taking portraits, but as lighting assistants, people to work the check in table, runners, etc. Whether you are a snapshooter, or a "legend" your talents will be helpful.
We especially need hair stylists and Make Up Artists that are willing to donate a few hours of their time as well. If you know of anyone, PLEASE contact them.
We hope to have at least 4 lighting setups in place for the day. The setups will be arranged for standard portrait lighting.
We will also be having a lab donate the prints for the day.
We expect to have coverage from local media (radio, newspapers, TV)
THIS SUNDAY afternoon at 4pm, we will be having a meeting (At Faith Community Church in Racine) to discuss further details about the event. If you would like to join us, let me or Timmie know.
Please go to the Help Portrait website, take a look around and check out the videos.
