    On 12.12.09 Some of Vegas' photographers and MUA, and stylists, decided to give back to teh community. We all stood together and helped some homeless teens feel like celebrities, to have all eyes on them if only for one day. And these are the images that resulted. It was one of the best things i have ever done in my life. Pawis and s14brent were on hand helping the cause as well.

    This was part of the HelpPortrait movement, these were my images. I have plenty more, but this was for the press (newschannels, newspapers, etc), so i had to knock them out within 15 min. I setup a boxing kind of set, so the kids could put on some gloves and feel like a pro.

    I went and helped out a friend last minute who was doing it down in Gilroy, he had told me he had 75 families sign up, and he was estimating he would need at least three 3 photogs...

    We ended up only having really 15 groups come through in the 8 hour span we were set up. He failed to mention the groups were all Spanish speaking so trying to coordinate everything was epic fail.

    We also were set up in the salvation army and they had kids and all other shit running around all day as like a day care that no one watched so I was constantly on guard for the health of my gear... Was also told there was going to be all the booth stuff set up, oh there was not... I don't really shoot people, so I showed up with the best I could, a few wireless flashes, and my other serious gear... his idea of booth set ups was a few dirty sheets hung up with tape, and a few old van bench seats.

    Well here is our group picture. I am the guy being girth...
