Shooting as a volunteer

I decided that due to a limited budget, I couldn't donate as much as I'd like to a good charity. The United Way makes sense to me. So, as well as some donations, I've decided to volunteer and I think it's worth a lot more to them than the small donations.

They get a full time Pro photographer for anything they want and I get the satisfaction that they are saving a lot of money which can now go to worth while projects. 

I did the first couple of sessions these last 2 weeks. A couple of samples below with volunteers working with people in the community. Teaching the blind how to perform various tasks and others how to better manage their lives. It's an eye opener as well. Sometimes you don't realize how lucky you are. Like just the ability to read a book. Of course as a photographer, if I didn't have sight, then this wonderful occupation and hobby would be lost to me.

Funny, it's web site stuff they need. Me knee deep, no, waist deep in learning CSS and I'm doing web site shots for the United Way. Somehow ironic.

If you're ever looking for a good cause to donate to, I think the United Way makes sense. It primarily helps those right at home just to integrate into society. 

 Cheers and good shooting -Peter Zack
