First annual MDA Muscle Walk was a huge success!

First, I wanted to say thank you to all my friends and family members that supported me in beating my $500 goal. We not only beat my goal, but I also received contributions from 10 people. Even if you didn’t donate, spreading the word and passing the message along helped too. In total, the event raised $62,000 towards research and program costs that battle more than 100 different forms of muscle disabling diseases.

If you didn’t know, MDA in Washington is partnered with some of the leading institutions that fight diseases and cancer including University of Washington Medical Center, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research, Seattle Children’s and the SCCA. The money is being put to good use. Once the code has been cracked with this disease, it’s going to help eliminate a lot of pain, struggle and heartache many families like ours face today.

I wanted to also say thank you to SmugMug for sponsoring my campaign by providing me with free prints for the posters and postcards that I will be sending to my generous donors. SmugMug is my online gallery and printing service for KVW Photo and has provided an amazing service for me and my clients for the past two years. If you’re ever in need of a reliable, friendly, affordable printing solution, check them out. I couldn’t be more happy with my experience with them.

Quick Update on Photo Galleries and SmugMug

It has come to my attention that some have hesitated to make purchases from the online gallery that’s currently hosted on SmugMug. The perception is that SmuMug is hosting my photos and making money off of the print orders. This is in fact true. However, I do receive funds as well. If you are a client and intend to make prints, please do so through http://kvwphoto.smugmug.com/ for now. SM is a paid service that allows photographers, such as myself, the ability to create safe and secure galleries for sharing and printing. Other nice features include the use of credit cards and the fact that they use an amazing print lab that guarantees quality color. But regardless, I will be making some changes in the near future to avoid any further confusion.

My apologies for any confusion it has caused. Please let me know if there are other oddities regarding the website. You can email me at hello [at] kvwphoto.com or message me on Facebook.

Also note that I have plans to revamp the Gallery page as well. 2010 is going to be fun! =)
