Wednesday Jan. 27 – help Haiti – online photography mentoring
The Mentor Marathon 4 Haiti will be held on WEDNESDAY JAN. 27 to raise money for charitable organizations that provide relief for Haiti earthquake victims.
Photographers: Please donate $100 to receive unlimited access to a day-long online mentor session by the industry’s top photographers.
Mentors will be conducting portfolio reviews, image critiques, answering questions, etc. Of course, the amount of 1-on-1 interaction depends on the number of photographers participating.
Participants will be given a password for access to the session. Your password will allow you in-out access throughout the day so you can come and go at any time.
Donate directly to your charity of choice. Email your receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line : HAITI and he will send you the password for access.
(IT’S A COMMON PASSWORD. DO NOT GIVE THE PASSWORD OUT TO ANYONE ELSE.)

Here’s how it will work:
At 7:30 am Central time on Wednesday, HUY will login to www.dimdim.com and obtain a room name and the password. You can log in anytime after that. PLEASE SIGN IN WITH YOUR REAL FULL NAME or we will log you off.
DO NOT GIVE OUT THE PASSWORD TO ANYONE AT THE RISK OF RECEIVING BAD KARMA FOR THE WEEK!
Mentors will be miked up so everyone can hear them. They will make a brief introduction of themselves. After that, it’s up to the mentors to guide the session. They may want to answer your questions or present a topic of their choosing. It’s a completely open format.
Participants (you) will be able to participate using the chat box. We have 3 mics available so we can pass the mic control around if you want to talk. Everyone can hear everything and but only the 3 mics can talk.
If you’d like a brief critique of a few images or for the mentors to look at something, please have those images online and have the links ready. Let’s try to make the process as easy and smooth as possible.
If you run into technical problems during the day, you can email email@example.com
The room capacity is 50 people but I don’t think we will need more than that at anyone one time.
If you’d like to thank the mentors personally, please feel free to make them feel appreciated for donating their time and expertise.
The people of Haiti thank you! FOR MORE INFO GO TO: http://fwforum.com/huynow/?p=218
