Incredible Times

This is an HISTORIC time and I want to document it. And as is my raison d'etre, it's people who are meaningful to me. People and their stories.

It is a difficult time for so many and I am grateful to live in such a wonderful neighborhood and town. So far all of us are healthy and safe and I am also grateful for the people continuing to work like First Responders, Grocery Store Workers, Truck Drivers, Delivery Services, Restaurants doing carry out and the media for helping us stay informed.

As a creative, it's hard to be cooped up without something new to do. As a portrait photographer, every client is a brand new adventure and experience as every client is so very individual and unique that it's never ending newness.  So I have been thinking about what I can do with my talents during this incredibly historic time in our country’s history. I have never seen anything quite like what our country and our world is experiencing right now.

I believe I found a way to do that in a safe and responsible way (following all current CDC social distancing recommendations) while creating work that is important to me and my community, beautiful and is my gift to you and your family. 

The Project

To photograph my neighbors in your domain, on your home’s front porch or through the front window of your home while we both are applying the current CDC approved guidelines for social distancing. I will stay in the street or sidewalk with a powerful lens.

I will be photographing from that safe distance using a longer zoom lens creating an environmental portrait of your family. You will receive the photographs as my gift through a digital download and you are free to share and print while allowing me to create this work and share it on my website, social networks and in printed materials.

I will start with my own neighborhood and expand out if demand is high. 

Would You Like to Participate?

I am looking for you, my neighbors (in Edgewood Park), to see if you would like to be a part of this. This is entirely voluntary.

There is no charge, I will capture the portraits while we are both being fully compliant with current CDC norms from the sidewalk or street while you and your family are safely on your front porch, front steps or, if you prefer, inside your home visible through a front door or front window. Totally up to you and whatever makes you feel most secure.

I will give you a link to download the high resolution images with my compliments and all I ask is that you would sign a model release so that I could share the photos on my social networks and on my website and perhaps create some type of gallery or printed piece once we come on the other side of this pandemic.

How does that sound? Do you have any questions? 

Want to schedule?

If you would like to schedule a time for your session (they will take five to ten minutes) please fill out the form below to schedule a time.

Please fill out the questionnaire below and I will send you a model release via email that I ask you to complete and sign and then email back to me. It is an online form that you can easily sign on your computer, or you can print it out, physically sign the paper and take a photo of it with your phone and send me via email or text.

I hope to show some photos very soon!
