October brings a serious topic to our attention – Breast Cancer Awareness. Because so many of our own family and friends have been touched in some way by this disease, we wanted to spend time getting to know those people in our community in a creative light. We invite you to participate in our new Fall series called Capturing Cancer.
We are interested in local stories of survival, courage and the battle of ALL types of cancer. If you, or anyone you know, has beaten cancer or who is currently going through it and would like to tell your story (the good, the bad, or the ugly), we would like to hear from you. These stories can be first hand accounts, family perspectives or even stories of inspiration, advice and support to others.
We are going to collect stories via email through October 31 and feature several on our blog over the next few months. Those selected will receive a complimentary in-studio photo shoot* (with family and support network or alone) to accompany their story which will showcase true beauty inside and out – capturing all aspects of cancer.
We want to create art, but most importantly, we want to create a place where people can go for support and comfort.
*Please email all stories and inquiries to [email protected] through October 31. If your story is selected for our blog, we will contact you to schedule and discuss your photo shoot.
*shoots will be scheduled on weekdays between November 1 – December 18
*please keep stories to 1500 words or less
Feel free to pass this to as many people as you wish. We look forward to hearing from you and getting to know real people in our community from a different perspective!
Thank you from all of us at Eye Wander Photo.
