From Kerry’s POV
When I saw renowned photographer Melody Hood was going to be offering a Clickin’ Moms breakout session, I knew I would be signing up immediately. Her amazing ability to move beyond capturing moments, to creating stories is magic. The mood, the lighting, the atmosphere; she weaves them all together in a way that is not contrived, but rather timeless. You see her images and create your own backstory. They evoke that kind of response. And as if this breakout couldn’t get any better, PocketWizard announced one lucky participant would win a set of PocketWizards. What?!? This was the marriage of two beautiful things and clearly a no-brainer.

Last September we released our short film about photographer Bob Carey and his personal endeavor called “The Tutu Project.” Using PocketWizard technology, Bob employed remote camera triggering to take self-portraits of himself in a pink tutu. With his wife Linda undergoing chemotherapy treatments, she and her fellow patients enjoyed the photos. This led to The Tutu Project and the creation of the Carey Foundation to support women undergoing breast cancer treatment.
The series has proved incredibly popular, with media coverage from CNN, The Today Show, the BBC, and countless other media outlets. Last fall Bob photographed himself and survivors at a series of halftime events at NFL games.
PocketWizard is proud to announce it is cosponsoring an event to celebrate the Tutu Project’s first anniversary. The event will be held at The Lab NYC, 122 West 26th Street, New York City, on Friday, March 22nd and Saturday, March 23rd, 2013.
