Now moving on from Le Salon, time to highlight another recent project: RED ALERT!
RED ALERT was a one-night event hosted at The Pyramid Scheme in downtown Grand Rapids. The event was put on to benefit The Grand Rapids Red Project and raised $2,000 to benefit awareness and prevention of AIDS & HIV in the local community.
The event itself was AWESOME! It featured a number of local makeup artists doing their craft live on the spot, working on the faces and bodies of local models. Being involved in the arts community, live makeup and hair in an artistic fashion is something I don’t see everyday – so being able to capture that process was really amazing and totally blew me away.
Also, DJ SuperDre was there spinning all night to a capacity crowd in the venue. Other sponsors and supporters of the event included A.K. Rikk’s, Echo Salon, The Grand Rapids Social Diary, and of course The Pyramid Scheme.
With this being a live event, the idea is to capture as much as you can – as creatively as you can. From the start of the night to the final model walk, the camera was rolling – but the end result was really great and I think we met the expectations that they wanted to capture for the RED ALERT event.
