Chicago Crew: Shooting for charity ain’t no rarity
There is no such thing as “down time” at Go To Team. When I am not shooting for one of our awesome clients, I am reaching out to the community by doing one of our infamous charity shoots. This week I geared up the F3 and headed to downtown Chicago to meet up with our friends at Family Focus, a non-profit that dedicates their time helping families give their children the best possible start in life. If you keep your ear to the news wire, you are well aware that there is an ongoing issue of violence in the Chicago metropolitan area. This charity provides a safe haven for kids, after school hours, to concentrate on their studies and focus their minds on academia and other specialty programs. They even have a production class where they are writing, shooting and editing a documentary! I got the chance to shoot what really goes on at Family Focus as a fly on the wall during their after school programs. I shot a bunch of nicely lit interviews that they can use for training and promoting awareness in the community. I had a blast! Who will be our next charity shoot? It could be you! Check out some of my interview screen grabs below!
