Following is a short description of the volunteer positions we need for H-P GCRA 2013:

Lead Photographer – 4 per site – We are looking for photographers who have DSLR that shoots RAW, have at least 2 memory cards, willing to bring portable indoor studio & must be comfortable shooting with off camera lighting ie alien bees, pocket wizards,  etc.; must have high speed chargers and radio triggers for flashes – no slaves.

If you have equipment but aren’t sure you want to be the lead, or would like to provide some extra equipment for back up or incase we need to add a “studio”, please let us know!

Assistant Photographer – 5 per site – These are the people who can organize groups, help with posing, able to move lighting, able to fill in for photographers during breaks, and assist in anything the photographer needs.

Editor – 3 per site – These are our behind the scenes photo editors.  These volunteers are willing to bring their own computer/laptop with your personal photo editing software.  You will be organizing, saving, editing and cropping photos as well as printing and saving to folders and back-up drives.

Times:  On many of the locations there is a morning shift and an afternoon shift.  If you are willing to volunteer all day, please sign up for both the morning and afternoon shift for the same agency.

Sites:  H-P GCRA are donating our time and talent to 4 agencies this year.  Please click the link to our facebook page to find out more about each of the agencies.

Questions:  Please contact [email protected]

This is about GIVING the pictures, not taking them. These portraits are not for your portfolio, website, or for sale. Money isn’t involved here. This is about a community of photographers coming together across the world to use their photography skills to give back to their local community.  note:  this is a non-club sponsored event.

Thank you for signing up to volunteer your time, equipment and expertise in the first of many years of Help-Portrait events for the Cedar Rapids area.
