Porchraits Journal – News Media for the Quiet Corner
Amended 4/27/20: Thank you to all the families who have participated in my PORCHrait Journal.
At this time I am still accepting applications for those who would like to participate.
There is no fee for me to come out to you.
Participants who wish to purchase images from an online gallery will be helping to support our local food bank “Friends of Assisi Food Pantry”.
As of today 4/27/20 Our Porchrait families have help to raise close to $500 in donations!
It is a difficult time for so many and I am grateful that we are here close to family and for all the people continuing to work, and on the front lines. We are all experiencing this incredibly historic time in our country’s history as well in our families. I have never seen or experienced anything quite like what our country and our world is dealing with right now.
I believe I found a way to do something in a safe and responsible way (following all current CDC and Government policies of social distancing as it is allowed) while doing something that is important, to me and I hope your family.
The PORCHraits Journal idea is to photograph my neighbors on your home’s front porch while, we both abide by the current CDC approved guidelines for social distancing. I want to know what you are feeling, how you are coping and what are some of the positives you can share with your community. My goal is to share how important we are to each other during this crisis through a beautiful image of your family.
If you are on the front line of this pandemic please consider having your portrait created with your family today, now! Let us show our support for you! What you do is beyond valuable for our community.
I will be photographing from that safe distance using a longer zoom lens creating an environmental portrait of your family. Although it may appear I am close it is because I am using a 200mm zoom lens and have the capability of cropping tighter in light room. Your portrait will be shared on my website, social networks and in printed materials along with your story.
You will also receive three of my favorite posted image as a shareable files as a thank you for participating. You will also receive a link to view all the images so you can order prints for your home, any purchase of portraits will also help to donate funds and support our local food pantry.
I am looking to feature the families of North Eastern CT. Our Quiet Corner. ( Woodstock, Pomfret, Putnam, Thompson, Killingly, Brooklyn, Sterling & Plainfield )
If interested please fill out this form! I will review all forms and based on location and approximate to one another, let you know of when and if I can make it out to your area. Sessions are only 15 minutes long.
Stay Safe, Stay Confident, We Will Get Through This Together!
