Photos from a shoot I did recently for the “2011 Bold and Digital Men of Social Media” calendar at the benefit for Falling Whistles. The Falling Whistles campaign for peace in Congo. Proceeds go to rehabilitate and advocate for war-affected children.

Shooting for charities is gratifying, you feel as if you are helping out a fellow human being. However rarely do you get any instant gratification. Though not a charity I did do something that made others happy and gave me the feeling of instant gratification.
Halloween. Ok you say to yourself, how does dressing up like a pirate or ballerina, or even a pirate ballerina (don’t ask)give you instant gratification. Well maybe it does but I get sidetracked easily.
NO, I didn’t get dressed up. I took photos of the revelers. Back in the day when Polaroid was around I would shoot polaroids of the costumed critters and hand them out with the obligatory treat.
Well Polaroid is gone so I thought to myself, why don’t I step it up a bit? I set up a makeshift studio in front of my house and offered free photos to any and all in costume. Some took me up on the offer and some didn’t. I’m in the process of sending out the photos to all who have requested them.
So without further ado here are some of the costumed bandits that graced my steps.
