As I meet and get to know other photographers, the sense I get is that we are all happy and feeling blessed to be able to do what we do. To choose a profession that allows us to explore our creative side and to enrich our clients’ lives by preserving the special milestones that come along their way — it’s pretty wonderful. Most photographers at some point, decide they want to give back. We must choose our charities wisely, however, as time is rarely something a photographer has in abundance to give away.
I’ve been pondering this for awhile and I’ve chosen the charity I want to work with. BC Children’s Hospital gives services and medical treatments to children from all over BC. No doubt, we have all needed their services at some point or have been touched by someone who has. I am looking forward to my first volunteer gig this week and am especially looking forward to the Miracle Network Telethon coming up on June.
