Young Eagles Flight – Looking For Photographers

Hey everyone,

I hope everyone had a great time at the Air Show last weekend.  Sadly I could not make it due to working some extra shifts.  But it will all work out for the best in the end.

So what I am hear to tell you about and maybe get some volunteers out of the deal is the COPA Young Eagles Flight on June 15.  Based on how the Fly it Forward with Flair day went this is bound to be another amazing event.

I have been in contact with Sharon (She was the volunteer coordinator for FFWF and did an amazing job at that) and it looks like they are short on photographers or even just people with cameras for this coming event and i have been asked to put the word out.

So here it is:

Calling all photographers(or people with cameras) We are looking for some people to take keepsake photos at the Young Eagles event taking place on June 15 2013 at Waterloo Airport.  You don’t need to be a pro photographer just someone willing to help(and has a camera).

As for equipment you will need(This is based off what was needed last time and not the actual list)

  1. A camera capable of about 35mm true focal length (This includes most point and shoot as well as kit lenses if you use a SLR)
  2. SD cards – 3 minimum (If you don’t have any still volunteer and we can see what we can do)
  3. Batteries for a whole day of shooting
  4. as tacky as it sounds a nice welcoming personality

Here is a snip-it from Sharyn’s email as well as some contact information:

“Hi Christopher

We’re just in the process of organizing our volunteers into their specific
groups (we are running it slightly differently from the way YKF Fly It
Forward was ran). The general gist of it will still be the same, with
volunteers arriving between 7:30am-8am that morning to set up for our first
batch of kids at 8:30am. The event is scheduled to end at 3:30pm, so we
should be good by 4:30pm I believe.

Do you by chance know of any other photographers who may be interested in
this event?? We would like to have 2 more photographers and 1 person
(doesn’t have to be a photographer) to assist Fred at the table. If you
do, please direct them to the volunteer sign up at and specify
“Photography” for area of interest. The next person in touch with you will
likely be either Ron Martens or Fred Trautrim (make sure their e-mails
don’t land in your spam account!!).

If you have any other concerns, please don’t hesitate to let us know.”

You can get in contact with Sharyn at “[email protected]

Hope to see you all there.
