The Wedding Dress

The Wedding Dress from Brad Armstrong on Vimeo.

This is a short audio slide show I created for my niece Kristi. She traveled from Chicago to Scottsdale to shop for the perfect wedding dress. In her quest she visited two bridal shops, Pricilla of Boston and Destiny Bridal. I was personally curious about this ritual so I decided to go and document her day.

Picturing Maricopa 2010

A short update. I am honored to say for the second year in a row I was chosen to take part in the 2010 Picturing Maricopa Project The photographic project is funded by the Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust.

Fifty-five professional photographers applied for this years photographic project. A selection committee evaluates the portfolios and selects fifteen finalist for the project.

We are then paired with 15 non-profit organizations throughout the Valley. By the way this is a paid assignment for those that might be wondering. It's in the public domain hence the number of applicants. We are paid a one day rate of $1500.00 by the Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust to provide images to the non-profits.

Last year, was it’s inaugural year were I was paired with Adelante Healthcare. You can see some of my work on their new website.

This year, I’m paired with The Centers for Habilitation .

I will be meeting TCH representatives next week to learn more about the centers and how I can contribute to there mission.
