Video shoot for the Kids In Focus program

Read More

I had the great honor to help the Kids In Focus program by doing video interviews with some of the students who have gone through the class. Kids-In-Focus takes at risk youth and gives them the opportunity to make photography part of their learning experience. Most of these students would never have the chance to own a camera or partake in a photography class. To hear how this program turned their lives around, give them an outlet for their anger, shyness, frustration, creativity, brought tears to my eyes as we were recording these interviews. Good friend and the driving force behind Kids In Focus, Karen Shell, herself a noted Valley photographer, has been working with at-risk, underprivileged youth for over 20 years. Karen has been funding most of this endeavor herself. She needs our help to keep this going. I am sure we can all find a little bit to sponsor this great program. Here are a couple of behind the scenes stills.Visit to help make a difference in the life of a youngster living here in the Phoenix area. Karen wants to take this national and she is the perfect person to guide this.
