The Art of Giving Youth Conference

While Amber and her crew were shooting a wedding at Wine and Roses, I flew to the east coast and covered video and photography for a North Carolina Youth Conference entitled, the Art of Giving. There were about three hundred student philanthropists present and the atmosphere was just amazing. All the students were so eager to learn and everyone were so excited to be there. This has been one of the smoothest run conferences I've ever been a part of thanks to Eric Rowles, CEO of based in North Carolina. I would have to say, the highlight and the closer of the event was the amazing performance art of fellow artist and Sacramento native, David Garibaldi. This guy blew me away. In 30 minutes, he painted larger than life portraits of Kanye West (pictured below), Alicia Keys, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Albert Einstein. Enjoy the non-wedding related pics!
