Calling all Photograph(Fight)ers…

The Valley Fire could become one of the top 5 most destructive fires in our history; the toll on our region’s landscape and community is heartbreaking.

I was able to raise $3,150 in 24 hours for the Valley Fire relief efforts by offering free photo shoots in exchange for donations.

Think what we could raise if every photographer made the same offer in their community.

If you are a photographer who would like to help, here is the challenge offer:

FREE one hour digital photo shoots in (name of your town) to the first 10 people who donate ($$) or more to one of the following organizations that is raising money to support the relief efforts for the victims of the Lake County area fires.

Please use the hashtag #photographfighter so we can see everyone who is playing and their photos.

These are the nonprofits my clients donated directly to:

Redwood Credit Union

Petaluma Animal Shelter

Thank you for participating and I look forward to seeing the difference our photography community can make.

There is no place like home… (free photo shoot offer at your home)

“No matter who you are or where you’re from, home means something to you. Homes serve as the backdrop for our childhood memories as well as the background of the interpersonal dramas in our lives. Our homes hold an iconic status as a place we can always belong. A place we can always be ourselves, let our guard down and still be loved. Home is a place you look forward to, a place where just being yourself is good enough,” Dr Robi Ludwig.

As of September 15th, 2015, Reuters is reporting that 584 homes have been destroyed by the Lake County fires.

While having your home burn down isn’t the end of the world, when your whole community (13,000 residents) and the land around it (more than 67,000 acres) burns down as well… I think it might feel pretty close to the end of your world.

It is certainly not something I ever hope to experience.

This being the first time I have lived so close to a crisis of this scale, it is so powerful and moving to see my community rally together to help the families who have lost everything and I want to do my part as well.

Just a small intermission…

It has been ages since my last post, and for that I apologize. It has been a crazy time, but I am back and ready to blog again. The good news is, hopefully, there will be lots of fun posts, as I have to make up for lost time.

The most recent photo news: Arann and I built a photo booth… for real. A for real real photo booth, and so we are excited to have that as a part of the Paige Green Photography tool box.

The occasion was KWMR’s Bi-Annual Barn Party Gala at Warren Hellman’s amazing ranch in West Marin and the theme was the Golden Age of Radio. Warren Hellman is the fantastic man behind the (FREE) Hardly Strictly Bluegrass concert series in the Golden Gate Park every year. So, needless to say, Arann, a big fan of bluegrass and an aspiring performer at Hardly Strictly, really really wanted to go to KWMR’s Bi-Annual Barn Party Gala at Warren Hellman’s barn…. so he sold KWMR on a photo booth… that we didn’t have.

(Here we are still setting it up and testing it out. I really liked the distorted larger than life head and tiny body wide angle look… but Arann thought it was a bit much… so we went with a more standard style below.)

So… long story short… we pulled it off (barely) by the hair of our collective chins… and in the end it looked pretty cool. And now we are excited to use it for future events… so if you want a photo booth at your next event… we’ve got a good one for you… just tell us the theme and well bring the props.

For those of you who attended the event, and would like your complimentary paige green photography photo booth photo… just click here.
