My redesigned portfolio website is now live and relaunched! Check it out, let me know what you guys think.
Thanks for following, I know I haven’t been posting a ton lately, been busy working on my latest project, which I’ll hopefully be able to share with you guys here within the next couple of weeks.
This applies to a lot of freelancer and creative professional work.
The Hope Photography Project now has an official website. Check it out and keep spreading the word out there if anybody knows somebody who lost their home in the Waldo Canyon or High Park fire!
"The Hope Photography Project is a collaborative effort created by Colorado photojournalists and photographers aiming to help those that lost family portraits in the devastating wildfires. We, like many Coloradoans, have been deeply saddened watching homes destroyed — specifically in the Waldo Canyon and High Park Fires in Colorado Springs and Ft. Collins.
Together we are donating our time and collective talents to those who lost their tangible memories by giving them the option of recreating new photographic memories.”
The Waldo Canyon Fire in Colorado Springs destroyed over 300 homes this past week and many of those who fled didn’t get the chance to grab everything. Many of them lost their precious family photographs in the blaze.
My friend and fellow photographer, Bryan Oller, witnessed many of these homes being destroyed and helped to put together the Hope Photography Project, where many extraordinarily talented photographers will be donating their time and effort to help those people replace their lost family photos.
“We are poised to help do our best to recapture moments that are forever lost because of the Waldo Canyon Fire. Honestly, we hope every single family got out with every precious photograph. If they didn’t, we want to help. We have a tremendous list of photographers who will be on hand to begin the process of rebuilding those lost photo albums. It’s our humble honor to help if we can. This all voluntary and 100% free and open to anyone who lost family photos. Time date and place to come. Please share and if you know anyone who may be interested, please have them contact me. Thanks.”
I will be joining a long list of incredible photographers to help in our own unique way. In addition to Bryan and myself, a non-inclusive list of photographers involved:
From the Colorado Springs Gazette: Jerilee Bennett, Christian Murdock & Carol Lawrence.
From the Denver Post: Helen Richardson, RJ Sangosti, & Hyoung Chang.
Other notable photographers: Josh Buck, Zara Ashby, Ellen Jaskol & Lindsay Pierce.
If anybody in the Denver/Colorado Springs area would like to help or knows of somebody who is in need, please contact Bryan at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please share and pass this along!
