harnessing the power of photography for good

Horizon Fall Festival

Our friend and fellow photographer Dr. Jim has been taking photos at Horizon North County for quite some time now.  I had the pleasure of meeting him a few years back and since then, I’ve helped him photograph several different events at Horizon.  He has helped MISSION focused photograph several events over the years as well.

Photography can be a very solitary art at times.  It’s not uncommon to hear about photographers waiting days, weeks and even years… for the perfect photo.  Much of that time in the middle of nowhere all by themselves.

With a little extra effort, it can  be a time of community and sharing, where photographers come together and learn from each other.  This sharing of the creative process is in my opinion healthy, and beneficial.  There’s nothing like getting up in front of your fellow photographers and explaining why and how you took a certain photo.Last week I went to Horizon’s Annual Fall Festival with Cyndy and Danie, to help Dr. Jim take photos of this years festivities.  I think I have been to the last 3 or 4 of these, it’s always a great time and a wonderful alternative for young families who don’t want their kids roaming the neighborhood at night.  There’s tons of fun activities for big and little kids along with chairs, coffee and entertainment for the folks.

These are just a few of the photos that we took.  You can learn more about Horizon North County HERE.  Enjoy.
