Power Interview

Posted May 18th, 2011 by   |  Photography, Uncategorized  |  Permalink

I do a lot of volunteer work for my children’s elementary school. Every year I put on slide shows of African wildlife and I also take portraits of the kids at Christmas. Because of that, I have the great privilege of getting to know many of the kids and have developed great friendships over the years.

In the 5th grade, each student completes a career report where they study all aspects of their career choice. Then, they put together a presentation similar to a science fair report. A couple of the students this year asked to interview me to learn more about a career as a photographer. Here’s one interview sheet from student Tory Romo. I love it!

Sharing and caring kids. I volunteered to take a couple hundred portraits of children who were donating toys to FISH (a local charity). They also held a great concert for the community shown in the pics below.
