Giving Back

The Will Rogers Day Parade

I love to give back to my community! So I would be happy to talk with you about my pro bono photographic services to cover your parade, gala, ball, reception, concert, charity fundraiser or community award ceremony. Simply put, I love any event that brings a lot of people together. I plan ahead, talking details with the event organizers, so as to know what is going to happen when so I can be in just the right place to get one great shot after another. I like to scout all the angles and light sources, so that, when the action gets started, I can record images that have a special pop! to them. I’m perfectly fine being a photographic “fly on the wall”, quietly, unobtrusively capturing the event. Or, I can bring in studio lights and backdrops to capture studio-quality images. All in all, I enjoy the challenge of being agile in creating a photographic record of the life and energy that was generated, taking pride that the photography is always as top notch as the event itself.

In addition to covering your event, I make frequent donations to charity fundraisers in Claremore and throughout the Tulsa area. Usually in the form of portrait certificates, I have donations that would work well either in your silent auction or live auction portion of your charity fundraiser event. I have made donations to the Rogers County United Way, RSVP Tulsa, Junior League of Tulsa, Rogers State University Foundation, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Oklahoma, Tulsa Heart Association, Ronald McDonald House Tulsa, National MS Society Tulsa, Life Senior Services Tulsa, among many others. Contact me at your convenience and let’s see what we can do to raise funds for your organization!
