So, I was finally able to catch up on a few things today, including picking up the mail for ONE-SHOT.

In […]

This feels like a count-down: in less than a month we’ll be starting our first photography workshop! We put out the request a few weeks ago for point & shoot cameras.

Update on the number of cameras!

It’s now a little less than 6 weeks away from our first photography workshop! We put out the request last week for point & shoot cameras, with the hopes of having enough for our class of 15-20 kids from the local group of students in Sulaymaniyah, northern Iraq. We’ll be collecting more than 20 cameras, […]
