Shooting parties and events are not at the top of my list of things I like to shoot, but once in a while a good cause comes onto my radar screen and I toss that aside, and I sign up. Last Saturday night I had the extreme pleasure of doing some pro bono work for the Oregon Food Bank's annual Oregon Harvest Dinner fundraiser. I was joined by fellow photographer and friend Steve Scardina. We had a blast. The entertainment was great, as depicted in the picture above, and they raised a lot of money. Giving back to one's community always feels great and I want to thank Amber and Jamie from the Oregon Food Bank for following me around and carrying what I call my "strobe on a stick." It was really fun to document this great event.
And now my pitch. Right now hunger is a major problem facing many families. So please, if you can, make a donation in either time, money or food to the Oregon Food Bank. They are the hub of a statewide network of over 900 hunger-relief agencies in Oregon and SW Washington. Plus, they throw nice parties.
