One Chair Project

I’m excited to announce the One Chair Project.  A collaboration with my friend and studio-mate D Shun-Luoi Fong.

The One Chair Project (TOCP) is a unique and exciting portrait project for families, friends, couples, pets, and everyone in between.

This project will bring people together in a collaborative photographic experience that is unified by one common element: a single, unique chair. Within the boundaries of a single light, a simple background, and a 30 minute session, photographer and subjects together are given the opportunity to collaborate and explore their creativity to create portraits that beautifully represent each subject in a unique way. It’s a journey of collaboration, creativity, beauty, and fun that results in beautiful images to share with one another and proudly display in homes and businesses.

The One Chair Project is scheduled for the autumn of 2012, and our challenge over the course of 10 days is to photograph 100 different subjects in 100 unique ways. So bring yourself, your family, your friends, your pets, and prepare to have fun creating amazing portraits of you, your loved ones, and one simple, yellow chair.

I’m excited because for this project we are partnering with Restore Innocence to support local survivors of human trafficking. Restore Innocence is a local non-profit that exists to “restore victims of child trafficking back to the innocent children God created them to be”. They currently run a variety of programs in Colorado and throughout the United States supporting survivors through the Cinderella House, the mentoring program, and the Restoration bag program. We love the work they are doing and are excited to support them in bringing hope and healing to survivors. For this project, for every 10th session that is scheduled we are donating $100 to Restore Innocence. Visit their website to learn more about the great work that they are doing, then schedule a session to help us reach our goal of creating 100 portraits and giving up to $1000 to support the work of Restore Innocence.

Ready to get started? The project will be held October 24 to November 3, 2012, PLEASE JOIN US?
