PMDA’s "Portraits of Love" Needs You!

September 2nd, 2011

Portraits of Love-Needs you.jpgThis is the third year that the
PhotoImaging Manufacturers and Distributors Association have
organized Portraits of Love, a project that aims to provide soldiers
serving overseas with portraits of their loved ones.

It’s a sweet project and it’s done
entirely on a volunteer basis – that’s why the PMDA needs you. Pro
photographers and portrait studios are being called upon to offer
their services to families of deployed military personnel free of
charge between the first of October and the end of December.

If you volunteer for the project,
you’ll be asked to photograph families and then upload the images to
a server. From there, the photos will be printed free of charge and
sent out to the soldiers from there.

“In 2010, we had more than 400
photographers host portrait sessions for families on military bases
and in studios throughout the country,” said PMDA president
Joellyn Gray. “The photography community has always been
amazingly generous with its time and resources around this cause, and
we believe we’ll be able to do even more with their support this
year.”
