Each year in June, Nu Skin recognizes Force for Good Day. The event is a day of local service for our markets around the world. Here in Provo, I was there to document the work of employees and their families bundling school supplies into packets for local school children. Crayons, books, notepads, pencils, and more will help kids study and be creative during the summer months.
In the age of social media, it’s important to show service projects and corporate responsibility. And I was the event photographer documenting the various service projects. I get to play the role of photo journalist, social media expert, and ninja! I photograph everyone from the CEO, to employees, to local politicians.
It’s the former mayor of Provo and current U.S. representative John Curtis. There is a press conference held to talk about Nu Skin’s corporate responsibility in the community. In addition to creating hundreds of jobs in Provo and around the world, service and donations help people around the world.
Another project is the beautification of historic Center Street in Provo. They were planting some flowers and other plants on the center median.
As with ever event, I shoot the details to help tell the story. It gives flavor and context.
And at lunch there was food for the volunteers! Provided by The Spoon, the BBQ had hamburgers and hot dogs. Hooray, summer!
Ritch Wood is the new CEO of Nu Skin and any time he is at and event I am tasked to photograph him in action. These photos can be used from social media, to marketing, and historical documentation.
