Help-Portrait wrapup 2012
Help-Portrait was a lot of fun this year and Orange was happy to participate including donating equipment and supplies as well as manpower. This year our Help-Portrait location at the Bayview Opera House photographed over 670 people and included 117 volunteers. It was even crazier than last year and the vibe was fantastic. The kids in First Exposures all had fun and realized the power of giving back to the community. This video was […]
Holiday Gifting Ideas (of the non-commercial type!)
Ahhh! Can’t believe how quickly the holidays have crept up on us? I feel like we were just celebrating the Giants’ World Series win and suddenly we’re hearing holiday music everywhere. Black Friday! Small Business Saturday! Cyber Monday! Giving Tuesday – it’s all a bit much eh?

Successful First Exposures photobooth and auction!
The First Exposures program is one we’ve supported for quite some time. I remember first thinking about doing a similar idea through Orange but then found out that it was already being done well, and now I’ve been mentoring with that program for a few years. Last month there was an auction which we had our photobooth at and it was a big hit. But the […]
First Exposures at Orange Photography Studio!
We were delighted to host the First Exposures program as the last real big ‘event’ at our old studio space at 1261 Howard in SOMA. It was a lot of fun and I think the kids got a kick out of it. It’s amazing all the different looks you can get in that one spot, and the kids got really creative as did the mentors.
There will be a benefit […]
