VB Photo Volunteer

VB Photo Volunteer ....TAKING PHOTOS!!! Everyone has busy hectic lives. Its hard to keep up with everything that is going on. When it comes to taking photos, nothing can substitute taking the time to shoot.

If you have some time and would like to exercise those photo muscles and add to your "10,000 hours", We may be able to help. Volunteering can sometimes get you access that you wouldn't normally have, can get you published, can give you practice, and all in a no lose situation (unlike for hire shoots). Just RSVP an event or leave me a comment. I look forward to working with you!
