Use Your Photography Power For Good...

by Dave Kallaway

There's some recent photo gigs that remind me that we should "use our photography for good purposes." Prime examples..are there charity events in your community that would benefit from having a photographer? Could you donate your photography services to a Humane Society, Charity 5K Race..those sorts of things? If you're thinking "why should I giveaway my talents?"..here's why. You are essentially the pizza lady you find at the grocery store. She's constantly giving out samples of pizza in hopes that she'll sell pizzas, right? With charity work..it turns into photo sales all the time. You'd be surprised..I was. I have shot pics for 5Ks, Marathons, Mini-Marathons for years..and I always hear back from a family member or fan of the sport wanting me to sell them photos from the event. So don't over look photog power for good. You can help out your community and the money will follow....
