When I heard of the events in Japan, of course my heart went out to those it affected. I know people living in Japan and I know people with family there, and my thoughts went to them. I wanted a way in which I could help out… when I saw my friend Rebecca posting about a benefit she was organizing, I knew I had to call her and ask her if I could be involved. Funnily enough (yes, yes, I said funnily) she called me before I could get in touch with her and she asked me if I would consider photographing the event. I immediately volunteered to shoot the event, though I couldn’t speak on behalf of the rest of the Small Moments Studios crew. But when I emailed Keith, Nick and Steve about the performance, they all said they’d love to be a part of it.
And so, Small Moments Studios volunteered this past Sunday night to cover a benefit dance/concert benefiting Japan and the relief effort. If you recall (because I know you’ve all been following the blog meticulously) last year I shot a dance performance at Hunter College for Rebecca Imaizumi… following that I did a photoshoot for Rebecca and then Keith and I shot another dance recital… shooting video for Millennium Dance Company… I have been eager to be involved in more of the dance photography/video. And so for this performance, I decided to shoot video alongside Keith, leaving the photography to Steve and Nick. So below are some of the shots that they captured. And once we have the benefit video put together, we’ll let you know how you can get a copy.
Thanks to all the performers… you were all amazing… some of you I knew from last time, but a lot of new people, new routines, amazing singers, poetry, musicians… it was just great. And thanks to everyone that came out to the show… overall we raised over $2,000! Thanks again to Rebecca and Lanette for organizing the event and for calling on Small Moments Studios to be a part of it. Any time ARGI needs us, let us know!
