Women's Initiative Wine & Whiskey Fundraiser [San Francisco Corporate Photography]

Posted by April Wise | November 2013

In September I signed up with Taproot to work as a pro bono photographer on a website redesign project for the Women's Initiative for Self Employment. WI is a non-profit that offers programs to help low-income, high-potential women gain independence through self employment. The program offers classes that teach women to start their own business. They also offer post-graduate tools to help them succeed. So far I've attended several planning meets but the Wine & Whiskey Fund Raising event was my first opportunity to photograph for the project. This event featured wine and whiskey tasting, a silent auction for products from WI graduates, and a very interesting donation process led by the district attorney for San Francisco. Down the road we have plans to shoot business profiles for 4-5 graduate success stories. I also plan to photograph a class, graduation, and possible the Spring Gala. More to come on this super fun project and the final website.
