To whom much is given, much is required.

I realize there are many awesome artists and organizations who don't have the budget for professional photos, so every month I offer a free photo shoot or workshop to support others who are doing awesome things.  Here's how it works:


1.) Submit your idea and tell me why the world would be a better place if you had some professional photos.

2.) On the first of every month I'll review the submissions and pick the one I feel is best.

3.) Later that month we will get together to make pictures and hopefully make the world a little better because of it.


Here are some things to consider:

Plan ahead! All submissions are reviewed the following month. For example, if you submit an idea in March, we would do that shoot in April. This is my way of filtering out the urgent, so I can focus on the important.

Compel me! I'm not working for free because I have too much time on my hands. I simply want to do my part in sharing my talents with others. I'm looking for people with big ideas and fascinating stories because those are the type of people I want to be around.

Dream big! Maybe your startup needs a new ad campaign, or perhaps your independent film needs a poster, or maybe you need to document stories of modern day slavery in Africa. Leave excuses behind and let me know how I can play a part in your dreams.
