Charity Event to Raise Funds for Relief Efforts for the December Typhoon in the Philippines
New York University’s Department of Photography and Imaging in the Tisch School of the Arts (TSOA) in collaboration with the Maurice Kanbar Institute of Film, TV and New Media, NYU Game Center, TSOA’s Department of Art and Public Policy, and NYU's Institute for Public Knowledge will host Headshots for the Philippines on Thursday, April 19 from 2 to 8 p.m. at the Tisch School of the Arts, 721 Broadway (at Waverly Place).
Following Headshots for Haiti in 2010 and Headshots for Japan in 2011, advanced photography students will take professional-quality headshots of any individual and 100% of the proceeds will benefit relief efforts for victims of the typhoon that hit the Philippines in December 2011. The typhoon killed over 1,300 people, displaced thousands of others, and caused millions of dollars in damage. This event, one in a series of annual Headshots charity efforts, is a collaboration of the Department of Photography & Imaging and TSOA Student Affairs.
The students donating their photography services are from three classes in the Department—Portraiture, Lighting, and Advanced Lighting. Additionally several alumni and volunteers will contribute their time. Prices for headshots are as follows: Any student with a valid ID - $60 for color or black & white and $80 for both color and black & white; NYU Alumni - $100 for both color and black & white; All others - $150 for both color and black & white. Touch-ups cost $40 per image for everyone.
The Department of Photography & Imaging is an intensive four-year BFA program centered on the making and understanding of images. It is a diverse department embracing multiple perspectives. The students work in virtually all modes of analog, digital, and multimedia photo-based image making, exploring photo-based imagery as personal and cultural expression.
