Thirst Relief Benefit Shoot 2012

Thirst Relief’s annual Benefit Shoot takes place every year at Wedding & Portrait Photographers International, WPPI. The 2012 shoot will happened on Sunday, February 19th from 1-10pm.

100% of proceeds go directly to Thirst Relief water projects located around the world to help provide people with a long-term source of clean water.

The 2012 Thirst Relief Benefit Shoot boasts an incredible lineup of instructors: Mike Colon, David and Luke Edmonson, Rocco Ancora, Roberto Valenzuela and CM Leung.

This year’s dinner took place in at Maggiano’s in downtown Las Vegas.

The day shoot took place outside of downtown Las Vegas in Nelson Nevada’s very own Ghost Town with the Red Rocks as a scenic backdrop for a stylized bridal fashion shoot.

Shooters were split up into groups and rotated between instructors on a timed schedule to allow adequate time learning from each instructor.

Words from Rocco Ancora on Thirst Relief

“It was a true honour and privilege to be involved in the Thirst Relief Charity shoot. It has been, without doubt, the most rewarding thing I have ever been involved in. The money that we raised will give 2000 people fresh drinking water for the next 25 years. A huge thank you to all the organisers for making this such an awesome event. Here are some of the pics from the shoot.”
