2016 DIFFA: Circo Rouge

This years DIFFA gala didn't go as planned for me! I reached out to them earlier in the year asking to donate my time/photography to them for their amazing cause. I wanted to work on a cool portrait project I came up with. Much like I did for Cancer Blows, but so much better!  I didn't want any cost to come out of my pocket like it has for other projects so I asked them for a small budget to build the set. Unfortunately they said no. 

So, since my wife and recently I have been great supporters of DIFFA over the years and we were going to the event, like we have in the past, I decided to bring my camera and shoot from my dinner table seat. I had a blast and came away with some pretty cool shots that the other photographers working the event didn't get. 

I am looking forward at reaching out to them again next year for the same cool project. My fingers are crossed that I can bring my project to life to help such a great cause!
