Celebrating Our Heroes Through Images

On Sunday April 7, 2019 the James Patrick Photography team participated in our annual SHARE THE LIGHT creative campaign through a partnership with the Jewish War Veterans of the United States Copper State Post 619.

The Jewish War Veterans of the USA is the oldest congressionally chartered national Veterans service organization in America. It was founded in more than 120 years ago in 1896 by a group of Jewish Civil War Veterans. Their mission is to service our needy US Veterans, support our service men and women on active duty, confront anti-Semitism, honor the memory of fallen comrades and promote patriotism.

I and the rest of the James Patrick Photography team created the SHARE THE LIGHT campaign to partner with a charity and/or non-profit organization and provide creative services to support the organization and expand the visual exposure of their mission. That is why we entitled the program SHARE THE LIGHT. This is critically important to me to help give my services and talents to organizations that can truly benefit form them.

During the 25th Year Anniversary Celebration Ceremony, I set up a photo studio on site and provided portraits for both veterans and volunteers at the organization to visually tell their stories. Each person had the opportunity to be in front of my camera for a few minutes of their time while I worked to make a portrait of them.

This project actually originated two years earlier when I had the pleasure of working with half a dozen Korean War Veterans (including my wife’s grandfather) – several being members of the JWV of the United States Copper State Post 619. Those original photos inspired this new opportunity.

On behalf of the entire James Patrick Photography team, I would like to thank all the volunteers and Veterans of the JWV of the United States – not only for their time they were able to spend with us – but for their truly invaluable service they have provided this country!

Time to Get LOUD!

So many ideas falter and entrepreneurs fail. But they don’t fail because the  ideas were not great enough. They don’t fail because the entrepreneurs were not hard working enough. They fail because they were not LOUD enough and their message never got heard.

That is precisely why I created the GET AMPED MASTERMIND!

I Need Your Help!

I have been a photographer for more than 16 years and in that time I have been blessed to work with some of the best clients on the best projects. But it is time to do something different.

Over the last 16 years I have been involved in a number of non-profit and charity projects including photography work for the Salvation Army as well as marketing work for organizations such as Voices in Tucson and Tu Nudito.

But I am now in search of another organization I can align myself with. I call this mission SHARE THE LIGHT.

I am seeking a non profit / charity organization who is in need of creative services to help spread their message and impact more lives in a positive light.

I will be devoting a number of my hours between now and the end of the year to this charity partner. My only requirements are they have an altruistic mission to help others in some way and could benefit from my creative services.

Here is where I need your help… I need your recommendations, suggestions and connections to the best organizations that exist. Help me find the organization where I can make the greatest impact to help the lives of others.

Help me share the light.
