SFTS nominated for “Print Campaign of the Year” at the Lucie Awards.

I am very excited to share that the “Words can leave a Mark” campaign I shot for Stand for the Silent has been nominated for “Print campaign of the Year” at the 2018 Lucie Awards. (The Lucie Awards / Honoring the greatest achievements in photography).
This campaign is one that is very special to me. It started when one of my advertising clients, Jeremy Lonsk of Area 23, contacted me about a pro-bono project for Stand for the Silent, a nonprofit organization that works with students, parents and educators to confront cyberbullying. I was sold the second they told me what it was for.
Our goal with the campaign was to demonstrate that cyberbullying causes real pain to kids and teens. We wanted each of the images to be arresting and capture the heaviness and pain that kids feel when they are bullied online.
It became a labor of love and passion for everyone involved with so many of my production team and crew donating their time to help lift awareness of this pressing cause: Milk Studios LA (who gave us studio space free of charge for the day), my producer Lisa-Maria Cabrera, make-up artist Prisca Wille, assistant David Winthrop Hanson and our incredible talents, who bravely volunteered to star in these ads.
