Everyone has a story, everyone has something that they hold close to their heart. Many people do not have a voice, and many people are the voice for their topics of passion.
Because of my own personal life experience and my education and training as a social worker, I have decided I want to do an “Empowerment Project,” to help bring a voice to people who otherwise might feel powerless.
What I am looking for:
I am looking for people who have had some type of immense struggle and wish to share their story with the world. This could be something that is personal to their lives or something they feel very passionate about. ~Some examples of this are battles with disease (both mental & physical), a traumatic event, a topic of human interest or something that really hits your heart.
You must have a vision for your session that you want to put the work into bringing to life. I need people who are committed to telling their story, who want to do the work to make that happen.
It takes a lot of time and energy to organize this type of session. My time is valuable. So long as the people who apply and commit to a session are willing to do what it takes to make them happen, I will continue to do these sessions once a month.
What this session will be like:
Once a month I will be selecting one submission and working collaboratively with that person to create a story through photography of their journey, passion, or feeling.
Because I will be doing this at no cost for the person selected, props, makeup, location fees and any extra expenses will be the responsibility of the person(s) that I will be photographing.
The selected person must willing to sign a model release prior to their session.
I do not guarantee a number of photos for these sessions. I will be selecting the absolute best that I feel really tell the story and I will be editing those. The person who is selected will receive all of the selected edited images. They will have printing rights, but copyright will remain that of Take A Little Paws Photography.
