Yesterday, I spent the day setting up and photographing a solid line of refugee kids with Santa. I was asked by my friend Marley who’s involved with a charity called Care Cuts. My good friend and fellow photographer, Cory Waite came to help me, and over the course of a few hours, Cory and I photographed a ton of kids and families.
Here’s a quick light test of the gear and setup before photographing all the kids – Marley, Cory, and me with Santa.
A lot of kids were photographed as families or groups, like this. I especially liked this little boy and his bowtie.
This was a great Santa. He was a lot of fun and did a great job. At one point when we took a break and Santa got up, I quickly sat in his chair with my remote. We got a couple funny shots when he came back to sit next to me.
The charity is called Care Cuts because they give free haircuts at specific pop-up events like these. So besides these Santa photos, people could also get free haircuts. The place was packed all day.
Here are some of the main people from the Charity.
I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas. And until next time, America.
