Picturing Maricopa

Good news I have been selected to be one of 15 professional photographers in the Valley to work on a pretty cool project. This is the info:

The Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust is presenting a community photography project called Picturing Maricopa. We hope you will consider participating. Few nonprofit organizations have budgets that allow them to hire professional photographers. Yet, we know that quality photography is essential to “tell their stories” to clients, partners and potential donors. Piper Trust has designed Picturing Maricopa to hire Valley professional photographers to photograph Maricopa County nonprofit organizations.

We hope the project will showcase some of the most talented photographers in the Phoenix area. Piper Trust will hire a group of 15 local photographers, based on the recommendations of an advisory selection committee, and assign each to take photographs of one of 15 human service agencies sometime over the summer. The goal is to capture the essence of each organization’s mission through images.

The project will culminate in a public exhibit where a selection of prints, chosen by the selection advisory committee in conjunction with the photographer, will be professionally mounted. After the exhibit, the prints will be given to the photographed organizations for display in their facilities.

How cool is this! Thanks to the Piper Trust this is a great opportunity to give to organizations that are serving humanity. I couldn't be more excited about this.
