“Giving Is Awesome”


Trish (my beautiful wife) 🙂 challenged me to give back this Christmas season and what better way than to offer my services to a family who would never be able to afford a professional photographer to capture some of life’s most precious moments.  Trish found this amazing organization called Giving is Awesome.  I love the idea and I am very excited to be a part of this.


You know someone. You know someone who’s experienced a tragedy, is struggling to stay afloat, is raising kids while holding down more than one job, or is volunteering selflessly despite extenuating personal circumstances. You know someone who can’t afford custom photography, but who would cherish it this holiday season. You know someone who deserves a year-round reminder of their family’s spirit, love, and beauty.

You know someone. I guarantee it.

I want to know who they are, and I want to give them the chance to experience complimentary custom photography — $700 worth, to be exact. This includes the session fee, digital negatives on a disc, and a $200 print credit.  It’s in your power to give them the artwork they deserve this Christmas season.

Oh, and the best part? The person who nominates the winner receives a $200 print credit. What better reason to show some love could there possibly be, people?

The rules:

* You cannot nominate yourself, and the person nominated must sincerely be incapable of purchasing my services. (Being unable to make mortgage payments for a two-million-dollar-vacation-home in Paris does not qualify as sincere financial need.)

* The nominee must reside in Philadelphia and surrounding Areas. Tell me who you know, what they’re experiencing, and why they deserve my artwork. Please include a way to contact both your nominee and yourself as well.

* You must e-mail me the full story : giving@mikelandisphotographer.com

The winner will be announced on Christmas Eve — get nominating! I can’t wait to read all of your entries!

Open your heart to someone this holiday season — and thanks for giving me the opportunity to open mine.

With love,

Mike Landis
