What Was The Front Step Project?
Time duration of the project ran from March 28th - April 28th 2020
Paying it forward by taking lifestyle photo's of families/couples taken from a distance using my zoom lens from a distance. I will be standing at much further away than the recommended distance, 21feet or more. A fun project where you got to stay in your pj's, casual wear or maybe a your chance to dress up. We were all in it together to stay home and stay safe, no socializing was required it was the new social way of communicating through social distancing. I have been inspired by this idea by following other photographers taking on this same journey, a way to keep my photography passion going.
A quick 10min photo, a photograph or two which you could download from my website through a link. A memory of the struggles and juggles during this Covid-19 pandemic as many families/couples have to work from home, homeschool kids, watch kids, house duties, lost jobs etc.
This was a free photograph session, free photograph, a time to unwind and to bring out some smiles.
We were and are still effected differently during this pandemic. All that was asked in return as to pay it forward by donating to the GoFund me link, no specific amount, that was up to you. I had a few charities/organization/small businesses where the money was donated to. It's a platform for everyone to see how much was being donated. If you weren't able to donate, that was not a problem, consider it a gift from me to you. It was a time for myself as photographer to continue doing what I love, capturing a moment behind my lens that you got to treasure.
Organizations/Charities/Small Businesses based in Oregon that was donated to:
Total Amount of Donations:$250
*Small Businesses i.e. Lionheart Coffee Company Lunch Programme
*Local Small Business, female owned hair stylist - Reveal Salon
Your support meant so much me and to those that I donated.
