I am halting the project for now...
Hi everyone after further assessment of the current situation with the Pandemic and the new small business regulations, i am putting The Front Steps Project on hold for the safety of everyone and to promote unity. It is very unfortunate since so much effort has been put into the project this past week. I would love to meet those who have reached out and truly provide you with a memorable photo session that you all deserve once the storm has passed.
Please do still consider making a donation to those in need. The link above is still up with the list of donations.
Thank you all and Stay well.
Interested in a full photography session?
Strengthening community begins with the first step.
For us it starts on the Front Step.
It feels like the world has stopped, doesn’t it?
Inspired by #TheFrontStepsProject, a “coffee moment” idea initiated by a Boston photographer Cara Soulia, I am bringing this project to Great Neck. I aim to highlight the faces of our community during a time when we might not see them in passing at the grocery store, coffee shop, on the train or at the gym. The purpose of this project is to bring people together in this community by documenting this time by taking five-minute “Front Steps Portraits” of Great Neck residents. Each day I take a few hours to scurry around town and snap super fast images of Great Neck families on their front steps. In exchange for the professional image, I ask our neighbors to consider donating to a charity we have listed below.
You will know when I am coming. You can step outside, where I (your Great Neck neighbor!) will be standing near your driveway or street, at least 10 feet away. I will take a couple quick shots and leave. We physically interact with no one, and touch nothing, during these sessions.
We *do* smile and laugh with you, however, and don’t we all need a little bit of that right now?
After your quick session, I will email you a downloadable photo gallery. In exchange, I ask you to make a good faith donation to the following charity for the medical workers on our #lastlineofdefense battling the virus. I will be posting these images on Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #thefrontstepsproject.
This is not a typical get-dressed-up-and-pose-for-the-photographer session. Want to stand outside in your pajamas and slippers? Sounds good to us. Kids in mismatched clothes but you’re thrilled they got dressed? Fantastic. Wearing your bike gear because you’re headed off to ride a trail in the nice weather? Love it!
We may be temporarily separated, but we are always united.
