April Club “Outing” – Edson Hospital Continuing Care...

Date: Monday, April 17th, 2017 – Easter Monday. Time: Portrait sessions to begin at 10:30am and go until about 3:00pm. Photographers should be earlier than this to facilitate setup. Location: Edson Hospital Continuing Care Facility. During this outing we will be making photographs of the residents in the Continuing Care facility at the Edson Hospital. There are four distinct “Homes” at the hospital housing residents with different levels of care needs. The idea behind this outing is to challenge photographers with potentially interesting portrait subjects while at the same time providing the residents with an activity in their day and hopefully some images that are meaningful to everyone. The...

Hospital Portrait Session Countdown – 1 Day...

posted on: Apr 16, 2017 | author: Julian Buchwald

GO OILERS GO Hopefully tonight’s game doesn’t go too many overtime periods so we get a good night’s sleep going into tomorrow’s ‘outing’. This is the last instalment of preparatory notes before meeting tomorrow morning between 9:30am and 9:45am in the Community room at the Continuing Care area of the Edson Hospital. The first note is on resident confidentiality and the use of the images we make tomorrow.  Each photographer retains all copyright rights to the images they make but is important to bear in mind that tomorrow’s images are being made in the healthcare environment.  This means that we may not use or distribute the images  (especially on social media) without consent from the residents.  We are still not sure what type of consents the hospital will have but the residents deserve respect for their privacy.  Participants should really not even discuss by name residents who they see...

Hospital Portrait Session Countdown – 2 days...

GO OILERS GO Hard not to feel good about last night’s hockey game but that’s not the content of this post… This one’s about some of the business aspects of the portrait shoot. We are doing this project as a way of improving our portrait skills and a community service to residents who might not otherwise have portraits made.  There is no charge to the residents for us to take their photographs.  In addition we will provide each resident with 2 – 5×7 prints at no charge.  The photographer will be responible for selecting the image and processing it ready for printing.  We will then send these to the lab as a group and the Club will pay for printing and distribute the prints to the residents.  These images will not be watermarked or logo’d but will have a label on the back indicating the photographer, copyright information and...

Hospital Portrait Session Countdown – 3 Days...

Happy Easter to one and all.  Gotta love the snow and springtime in Alberta.  This is an update for Monday’s Portrait Sessions and the hospital for everyone.  I hope to add a couple of posts tomorrow and Sunday to keep providing information for everyone.  Why such a big deal about this outing?  Simply because it is about more than us as individuals.  We are involving a good number of other folks in this project and I think it is important that things go well.  So, for today’s information… We will be meeting in the Community Room at the hospital between 9:30 and 9:45 on Monday morning to organize ourselves to begin photographing at 10:30.  This room will be directly ahead of you if you enter the hospital through the Continuing Care entrance.  Drive east past the main parking lot and the drive will curve down to the right and...
