I’m a strong believer of photographers using their skills to help others.
When I previously lived in North Carolina, one of the groups I volunteered with was the North Carolina Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
I become involved with the organization through shooting a fashion show that benefited LLS, and that grew into me shooting a few of their fundraisers, including Light The Night, Man & Woman of the Year, and Student of the Year.
When I returned to the Raleigh-Durham area, I wanted to continue my relationship with them, which resulted in me shooting this year’s Student of the Year event.
Students of the Year is a philanthropic leadership development program for high school students where they raise funds for LLS. The event culminates at a gala at the Raleigh Marriott City Center where they announce the student who raised the most funds.
It was wonderful donating my photography services for a great cause. I’m looking forward to doing more things like this.
