You Could Win This Photograph with One Act of Kindness!

In Honor of my father Cole Weston on his birthday today Jan. 30th!
You could win this photograph by doing one random act of kindness.
Each day I am thankful for what I have… I have shelter, I have food, and I have friends and family who love me. Too many people in this world are in need. This contest is a very small way I can help and give back by raffling one of my photographs in exchange for your random acts of kindness.
My only rule for this raffle: The act of kindness needs to be to a human being in need or to benefit other humans in need. It has to be an act of kindness from performed from Jan. 30th to March 11, 2016
Suggestions: Donate to a homeless shelter of your choice: An example is (https://www.gofundme.com/3rm2phvr) or any place that helps people in need. If you can’t donate money, do something yourself that shows you helped another human being in need.
Go to my website www.carawestonphotography.com and submit on my contact page what you did with your proof (a picture, a donation receipt etc.) or post on Facebook and tag me in the post. Be creative, and push yourself to show the kindness in your heart and the care you have for other humans who are less fortunate, or are in hard times. Every random act will spread kindness and love in this world we all call home.
On March 11th I will draw a name from the submissions and someone will win this photograph.
Good luck to you all!

Representation By Lumière Gallery!

It is a great honor to now have my photography represented by the Lumière  Gallery in Altanta.  The Lumière Gallery offers one of the country’s largest selections of collectible photographic prints.

Lumière’s founding by Robert Yellowlees was based on his interest in advancing the appreciation of the photographic arts and increased recognition for exceptional photographers. His perspective is based on decades as an active collector and supporter of exhibitions, publications, films and educational programs. He has served on, and chaired, the boards of a number of arts and educational organizations.

Tony Casadonte (the gallery director) has had a diverse, thirty year career in photography. After graduation from Rochester Institute of Technology, his early career concentrated on photo-illustration, video, computer graphics and management of commercial photographic laboratory operations. As a partner in a interactive design firm, he pursued the application of on-line technology to photography. His engagement with numerous arts related groups, experience with exhibitions and client advisory support have helped shape the design of Lumière’s virtual gallery.

Please take a moment to immerse yourself in this wonderful gallery by viewing their website and seeing all it has to offer.  If you find yourself in Atlanta do take the time to visit the gallery and enjoy all the fine artists they have on display. You will not be disappointed!!   Cara’s page on Lumière’s website
