Honoring Our Veterans goals are to help wounded veterans move forward along their path to recovery by providing them with activities that increase confidence, improve both gross and fine motor skills, improve concentration, build trust, and help with the reintegration process.
The goal of the photography session is to teach the veterans to view life from a different perspective and to open their mind to the beauty that surrounds them. The photography session encompasses many aspects of photography such as classroom instruction on exposure, lighting, night-time photography, and printing, etc. With the assistance of volunteer photography instructors, the veterans travel to various areas including Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks to photograph nature, wildlife, mountains, rivers, sunrises, and sunsets. Near the end of the session, each of the veterans choose a few of their favorite photos to print, matte and take home.
