Another blog post that should have gone live 2 years ago! I photographed the 2012 Utah Pride Festival Committee back in April of 2012 and I am finally sharing the photographs. A lot changes over time and it is a good thing to take photographs recently.
The Pride Festival goes on in the month of June but months of planning and meetings go into organizing the festival. I wouldn’t be surprised that the first meeting is within weeks of the old festival being torn down.
I was brought in to photograph the individual members so they could have photographs for signage and lanyards. This way volunteers knew who was in charge and how to recognize them. A photograph helps a lot. I brought my portable lighting kit and setup during one of their meetings. We then spent no more than half an hour photographing each person and then photographing the group.
A big thanks goes out to their dedication and hard work. The festival wouldn’t happen without the volunteers and the hours you put into the meetings.
