What's up Everybody. OMG. It is that time of year again and I just read an email from Jerrome that he is living in France and therefore we are running late for the organizing of the NYC Help-Portrait Event for 2011. I am committed to organizing a meeting for anyone interested in volunteering for the event. I have led one of the biggest NYC HP events the last two years and I hope that this year we can get a site in every borough! I will be setting up a meeting for next week, Tuesday at 6pm in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
211 South 4th Street
Brooklyn, NY 11211
Between (South 4th and Roebling St.)
Everyone interested, hit up this forum and let us know if you are interested in helping.
BTW, sorry I have been out of the loop. We just had our second baby!
Never done this before but I'm IN to help plan (I do production as well so I won't mind at all) and most definitely to SHOOT! I can make the meeting next week.
Good to see you, Will! I definitely plan on volunteering again - to document an event with stills, as I did in 2009 and 2010. I don't think I can make the meeting Tuesday, but I'll watch the site for updates.
There's an old spreadsheet still up here - will you be building on it? I've updated my info for 2011.
Congratulations on baby number 2!
I'm in! Should be able to make the meeting on Tuesday, but if not (I may be taking a class that starts that night), I'll be in touch on Wednesday.
Looking forward to it! Thanks for taking the reigns Will!
Good Morning Will,
This will be my first year participating and I am looking forward to helping out in any way that I can. I already signed my name to the spreadsheet. I will definitely be attending the meeting next week Tuesday and I look forward to meeting everyone then.
Congratulations on your newest addition to the family. [Future HP Participants in the making]
This is my first year volunteering, I look foward to helping out anyway I can. Hope to make the meeting next week.
I just moved to NYC and would love to help out.
I've photographed in the past in Houston and Albuquerque and work as a photojournalist.
I hope to make the meeting next week to pitch in.
I'm definitely in. Unfortunately, I'm working Tuesday night and will be leaving for a week in Japan on Wednesday. I'll be in touch as soon as I get back to see what I can do to help out prior to the big day.
Cheers and congrats!
Will, you can definitely count me in for volunteering this year. I can help find resources and can definitely shoot. It will be my first year participating and I am looking forward to helping out in any way that I can but in a Manhattan location primarily. I have added my name to the spreadsheet. I am planning on attending the meeting tomorrow if I finish a shoot I have in the early evening. If I miss it I will definitely check this board. Or is there a more direct way to touch base with you Will?
I have been looking forward to joining this wonderful project since I learned of it last year. And I hope to meet some of you others tomorrow evening.
Much joy with your new family member Will.
Can we have leads from last year who will be taking part in this year HP post your location for this year.
I'll be at The Children Incarnation Center again this year. I've already spoken to them and they are very excited to have us back this year.
Kendra, I didn't realize you'd committed to ICC (Incarnation Children's Center) already for this year - sorry!
Kendra, will you be the lead organizer at this location?
