LONDON, ONTARIO —Photographing at Sebastian’s Superhero disco ball annual fundraising gala, in support of neuroblastoma cancer research was a complete honor for me. Every single person was there to celebrate life and fight this terrible disease, and when the organization reached to me and asked me to be the main photographer for this important event I didn’t think it twice.
Neuroblastoma is the most common cancer in babies and the third-most common cancer in children after leukemia and brain cancer. If you want to get involve and help the fight, please visit Sebastian’s Superheroes to learn more about this group of amazing people that work together for this cause, and you can help them too. So please go visit their website, like their Facebook page, share it, and most important, get involved, you can do it in so many ways.
As an event photographer in London, Ontario, I try to go beyond the regular images you see from other photographers, not only for this occasion but for every job I go. By the end of the night, I have captured the story of the day: the meaning and the essence of the event.
I’m extremely glad that for Sebastian’s Superhero disco ball I created a narrative and put the event in the context of the organization, brand and message, all made with action and engagement with the story. Please support this great cause and visit Sebastian’s Super Heroes’ website to learn more.!
