Sorry I have been off radar....I finally got power back myself and am back online....
In a nutshell, I have created a Facebook group page for us to communicate better as many people on this forum have been inactive for years...
Please follow the link and add yourself to the group. I will then agree to have you on the group. Very easy.
I am looking to focus this year on the areas most affected by Hurricane Sandy in NYC. Sites I am organizing in are Rockaways, Breezy Point, Staten Island and Coney Island....
We have a fast turnaround time here folks this is what we need:
This is a group for Photographers, Make up artist and anyone who wants to participate in volunteering for this years Help-Portrait NYC 2012 (Free Family Portraits) specifically for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. Many of them have lost everything including family photos. The goal is to create a loving space where we can offer free family portraits as a gesture of levity and joy during this time.
What we need:
-Lead Photographers to connect with a community based organization to host the event and be the primary liaison.
-Photographers with full lighting set up
-People who can edit and print the images for the families
-Make up artist and/or Hair dressers
-General volunteers to greet, sign in families, share a smile and overall assistance.
-Donations for the paper and ink
From now on all communications will go through the facebook group: Sandy Relief Help-Portrait NYC (Free Family Portraits)
My email is email@example.com for any questions or by phone at 347.683.7466
Peace and blessings,

Hey anyone stopping by, I'm organizing Help Portrait session on 12/8 for the Brooklyn YWCA. We'll be photographing women who live at the YWCA and would otherwise be homeless. This is a special group of women who have likely not had the opportunity to see themselves captured in a portrait. The YWCA is super excited that we're bringing this to them this year.
We'll need all kinds of assistance, so if you're looking to join a Help Project team as a photographer, assistant, makeup or hair artist, helper, etc. Please contact me via this site.
Looking forward to and appreciate your help!
