Photography Equipment for the project at the show has been donated by Paul's Camera.
Volunteer professional photographers will be capturing free portraits of active duty members of the military and their families throughout The Big Photo Show.
**PROPER MILITARY ID REQUIRED TO HAVE PORTRAIT TAKEN**
The goal of the Project is to provide U.S. soldiers around the world with portraits of their families and loved ones, taken by the incredibly talented photographers within our industry. What better way to make our soldiers feel at home than by providing them with a beautifully photographed and printed portrait of the ones they love and miss the most?
The PMDA Portraits of Love Project will help soldiers create their own private world - one in which when they lay down at night, in the barracks, in the tents, or wherever they are, they can gaze upon their loved ones. At a PMDA Person of the Year dinner, Sergeant First Class Toby Nunn spoke about the incredible motivation a simple photograph can provide to a solider away from home. We are looking to use the strength and commitment of PMDA member companies to help support this Project and provide the men and women defending our country with a piece of home during these difficult times.
The PMDA Portraits of Love Project is the imaging industry's way of giving back with gratitude to the men and women who defend our country each and every day. We wish to thank all of the participating photographers for their enthusiastic support of Portraits of Love.
