Julia Herbert Children's Benefit

I was sent out by Jon again for a charity event for abused children. When I got there, I had no idea what to even shoot. Hardly any people around. There was music, food, and later in the evening Slash surprised everyone with a visit. Even though he was just an impersonator, he was pretty good. I'm glad I didn't leave when I was about to. I wanted to either get my picture taken with him, or at the very least, his autograph, but he was in a hurry. And with everyone else swarming him, I didn't want to delay him any longer. At any rate, I snagged some personal photography shots for my greedy self. Channel 4 News Hailey Winslow was on the scene, and I was in a shot, even if it's just seven or so frames and I'm in the back. Kind of interesting, I guess. Even if I am standing awkwardly. After I decided I was done shooting and the event died down, I also decided to volunteer and help clean up the event site. Hard, but rewarding. Whoever said community service and volunteering was easy has clearly never volunteered.

So here's some of the better pictures, plus a few of the personal ones I nipped of Slash before he headed out. The rest, as with all event shoots, can be found here.
