Un Sung Heroes for Society of Publication Designers 2010 from Betsy winchell on Vimeo.

Society of Publication Designers put on a show for photographers who were not yet recognized. This was a chance for the LA photo people to show the NY photo people that there is talent in Los Angeles and it needs to be recognized more often. The event was held at Smash Box Studios in Hollywood.

People such as Carol LeFlufy of Eye Forward, Kathleen Clark of the Clark + Oshin Gallery, and Lisa Thackaberry of Angeleno Magazine presented photographers. I was presented by Carol LeFlufy and was so excited to be presented in front of LA’s industry professionals.

BIG SUNDAY Los Angeles

Big Sunday is a day when 50,000 volunteers come together (young and old) for community building. Things like feeding the homeless, fund-raising for non-profits, and activities to  help a community in need were organized. I was asked by the Design Director (Charlie Hess) of UCLA Magazine to help cover a couple of events in Los Angeles and Hollywood. I saw many young volunteers getting involved and wanting to help with their parents. In the Morning I was at

People Assisting the Homeless (PATH) where breakfast was served for the residents. Then to the LACMA lawn where the folks at the Good Shepherd Center for homeless women and children were bussed to the Museum to enjoy family day and the art activities that the LACMA puts on during the weekend.

It’s very important that people get involved in community service. It’s good for us. It helps us gain perspective and be thankful for what we have.
