I have decided to donate 30% of all of my sitting fees to charity. I am not going to increase my rate to accommodate this interest. I am hoping that this can be a win-win situation for everyone involved. I get to achieve a goal, be creative using photography and offer a service. You get some beautiful portraits of your family, children, reunions, marriages, engagements and birthdays while giving to charity for the same (or less ) than hiring another photographer. And most importantly we, together, can make a difference in the world. A real difference.
I have chosen 2 charities to pick from: The Central Asia Institute which builds schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan, and Community Action - which is the food bank for Utah County and also offers community programs.
