How so? Well, I pride myself on being a person that doesn't just talk the talk, but my family and I will walk the walk also! We have been involved with American Cancer Society events, fundraisers for various schools and the Children's Home of Stockton, and rescue work (with animals) just to name a few. What does this have to do with anything? I bring my camera along!
I most recently attended a "Making Strides against Breast Cancer" event in Stockton this year, and it is always wonderful to see the teams that come out support a loved one. Everyone dresses up, and there is such a story! Here are a few images from this event.
I get my "photographer's" pass, we fundraise, walk in the walk, and I carry my camera the whole time and capture everything- then I post the images on my Facebook page and donate my images to the event coordinator so they can use the images for additional fundraising, meetings, newsletters, and to drum up participation the following year!
If you are a photographer, get involved in things you care about, and take your talent with you. Most fundraisers don't have tons of cash to pour into advertising and are always looking for sponsors.
It is so important to give back to your community. Don't let your life revolve around work,
use your work to make a difference!
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful,
committed citizens can change the world;
indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."-Margaret Mead
