We have big ideas!
In 2009, a few of us orchestrated several events within the Seattle area. Through these events we were able to provide over 300 individuals and families with portraits. When we got together this year, we thought about how we could kick it up a notch, you know, to the next level. We knew of Non-Profit organizations that we wanted to work with, organizations we connected with. We wanted to give more portraits, hopefully impact more lives. We started having conversations, which lead to ideas, some big, some small. We've been working on those smaller ideas, planning on site events in a few locations, but the big idea was still out there, lurking about.
The big idea:
What we if could find a larger space, invite people to join us there, for a day long event. We have found ourselves in a fortunate situation, access to a larger space, in a central location, the creativeLIVE studio.
On the heels of the Experimental Portraiture Workshop with Jeremy Cowart, we will be hosting an event at the creativeLIVE space on 12/4/10.
We are reaching out to several organizations, inviting them to join us, throughout the day. We will have several photo booth's setup, a plethora of editors, greeters, and more to make this event a success.
We are still seeking volunteers, so if you're interested and haven't gotten in touch with us yet, please check out our Volunteer Survey.
We are going to have a planning meeting with all the volunteers who can join us at Uptown Espresso at 4th Ave and Wall St in Belltown, on Monday, November 22nd at 7:00 PM.
If you are unable to make the meeting, but still want to be involved the day, you must send us an email so that we can chat about the day of. We will probably do a second meeting the week of the event to finalize details.
A couple of notes:
You do not have to be a Photographer to be involved, as a matter of fact we will need more Non-Photographers than Photographers. We will need Photographers, Editors, Assistants, Greeters, Administrative Types, and more...
If you are a Photographer and want to be involved, please include a link to your online portfolio, if you currently only have a Flickr account or something similar, please share a set of your best portraits.
That's it for now... oh yea... I know I'm forgetting something...

Wait hmmm... I swear, I think there's something else. What could it be?
Oh yea... I know, Jeremy Cowart is going to be there the day of, as part of the Help-Portrait Seattle crew!
