A few months back I had the opportunity to shoot photos for a great cause with the Be The Match organization. Be The Match helps find bone marrow donors for those in need of transplants. The charity partnered with Phiten, an international sports and wellness manufacturer and retailer, to produce a special “tornado” necklace with proceeds to go to the organization. As part of the special program, Major League baseball players, CJ Wilson, Josh Hamilton and J.B. Shuck of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim were brought in to help spread the word with a public service announcement titled, “Step up to the plate. Be a hero.” The photos have been used for their promotional campaign and website. This type of experience and working for such a great cause and with amazing people is what motivates me as a photographer.
