Volunteers for 2011 SNAPSHOP!

Lucie Foundation is looking for volunteers for our 2011 SNAPSHOP! photography program. This is a four week program for at-risk high school youth to partner with professional photographers in fashion, music, animal, fine-art narrative, documentary, and low-fi analog photography.

We need help to make this amazing event possible (running check-in, setting up equipment, food set up/break down)! Workshops will take place at Santa Monica City College, The Julia Dean Photography Workshops, and the Lomography Store. chiropractics . If you are available on any of these dates (April 9th, 16th and the 23rd), please contact [email protected]

Month of Photography LA 2011 Is Almost Here!

Spring approaches and so does Month of Photography Los Angeles.  Since 2009, Lucie Foundation proudly puts on a month long celebration of photography every April in Los Angeles.  This year’s theme is “Adaptations and Reverberations: Contemporary Photography’s Ever Changing Landscape.”  We explore the adaptations of photography as it transforms with technology while classic approaches still reverberate in the artform.

We’re very excited about our MOPLA programming this year and highlights include Fresh Look Portfolio Reviews, SnapShop!, Smashbox + MOPLA Group Show, along with several MOPLA curated photo exhibitions and projections from the community.  We’re also collaborating with galleries on artist talks and events that will appeal to both professional photographers, students, and emerging talent.

As an effort to bring photography to the youth, SnapShop! is a four Saturday program that connects high school students with established photographers that can teach them the technical and aesthetic skills to create compelling photographic images.  We’ve reached out to the Los Angeles youth that may not have access to photography programs or workshops.

Month of Photography LA 2011 will launch its official opening on the night of April 2nd.  Stay tuned for updates and make sure to check out the official MOPLA website for more information.
