Hoops for Hope – Austin Event Photography
Yesterday Charles and I (Kate) had the extreme pleasure of participating in the first Hoops for Hope fundraiser, benefitting The Smile Never Fades, an organization that provides assistance to women affected by breast cancer. The event was a Guinness Book of World Records record attempt for the most people hula hooping for fitness. It was a blast! Bill Bastas, the founder of The Smile Never Fades, is a dear friend of ours, and a wonderful photographer! So, we were proud and honored to be able to donate our green screen photography studio to the cause. Who would have thought photographing people with hula hoops would be so fun… but it was! The Hoops For Hope logo looked great as the background for the green screen photographs, and the adults and children alike really enjoyed themselves taking pictures.
The Long Center For The Performing Arts hosted the event, and over 100 hula hoopers signed up to participate in the record attempt. Great entertainers were on board to keep the crown entertained while the participants practiced their hula hoop routine. It was a ton of fun to watch! Everyone who was photographed on the green screen raved about getting their photographs on the spot, and two people even asked about having green screen for their next events. Awesome! Maybe we’ll get to work with some of these people again.
Here are some of my favorite images from the day.
