The group is involved in a variety of volunteer activities in the community that involve photography.
Active Volunteer Programs
Also, on August 24th, we will be making portraits for Star of Hope so we will need photographers, posers, retouchers, etc. We plan on having training classes beforehand and will also use this opportunity to train for Ft. Hood.
Camp Hope, located in Houston, is an in-house treatment center for former GI’s with primary and secondary PTSD. One of the Hipclub projects this year is to donate photographs to decorate the facility.
The Fort Hood Family Portrait Project was started in 2010 as a USO project for each military installation in the system. After the first trip to Ft. Hood and photographing a dozen families Alan realized that this would be a great project for the HIP Club. It would serve both the families at Fort Hood and the club members that participated by increasing their knowledge of lighting, posing and working with people.
