This Auction turned out to be a huge success, and I was honored that my photos had the highest bidders. Click here to read about the results of the auction..
For the past few months I have been volunteering here in Portland Oregon for a non-profit called “Focus On Youth”, and it really is a nice opportunity for these youth to learn about photography, and get their minds off of some of the hardships they face each day.
From the website:
“The mission of Focus On Youth is to keep at-risk youth on the path to graduation using photography and mentoring to empower and inspire them to achieve academic success. Focus on Youth has been putting cameras in the hands of at-risk youth for the past seven years and we have seen them transformed by their experience. We believe that all individuals deserve respect, dignity, education and equitable chance to achieve their full potential. We value diversity and seek out inclusive partnerships with all members of our community.”
This is a non-profit organization truly dedicated to helping these youth. If you are able to donate a FRAMED FINE ART PRINT for the auction in May, it would be greatly appreciated. These prints really need to be of the best quality. A lot of you professionals out there can most likely write this off on your taxes, and it will really make a difference for these youth.
