head shots


Okay ...I'll tell the rest of the story.
I happened to fit a demographic that was needed for a brochure.
My niece Tanya who works for Insight for Living Canada called me up and asked if I might zip down and do her a favour.  It seemed she needed someone neither too young. .nor too "mature" to be part of a giving campaign.    If you check the 2010 magazine covers you would find other people in my family also involved in various volunteer positions.  Here is one of my favorites.

I met at the office and was introduced to the photographer who handed me a plate.
I stood in various positions and looked "very happy".

After about 20 "very happy" shots. ..Tanya asked if I wanted some head shots for the fun of it.
Well . . .why not?  I suggested that we pose together for a few since I might one day keel over and she would say. . ."OH. .I have a picture that we took back in 2010. ..she modeled for our campaign brochure. . .I'll see if I can find it."     She laughed when I said this but agreed it might be a good idea. . .just in case.

So. ..here is the finished campaign  link. . .and as always. .I've learned to say. ."never say never."

. . .and now you know the rest of the story.

all for now. . .

  3. You on the same page as the face of one of my favorite Bible teachers...what fun! Where my dear friend will I find the next picture of you? Seems like your "fame" is spreading. Your face was the perfect one for their campaign. I am sure the giving will be up.
