Picture present. Focus forward.

I have seen so many times my clients just blossom while going through a photo-shoot experience with me, that I thought “One day, I have to do something more! Use my skills and talent and find some people who really deserve some positive experience.” I decided to contact the South Eastern Cancer Foundation at the Solas Centre in Waterford, who cares for cancer patients and their families. They look after the emotional side, playing an extremely important part on their hard journey, and that’s how this beautiful project began…

Bara Alich Photography, www.baraalichphotography.ie, Picture Present. Focus Forward.

On April 18th 2015, at Waterford Castle, I will photograph 18 very brave and giving people, who are willing to share their stories to help others.
I got together an amazing team who will help make this an unforgettable experience for them. I will capture their beautiful portraits and with the photos we will create a 2016 Calendar. We aim to spread the awareness that cancer can affect anybody, no matter how young or old or how healthy our lifestyle. Our participants are regular people just like me and you, and although they’ve been through a lot they are strong and never give up.
We’re also making a behind the scenes video of the shoot day, to share more of their stories and of the incredible help that Solas offered them when they thought there was no way out. All this will be revealed in early November at the Calendar launch event.

I am very excited about the video, as it will be shot by the incredible videographer Johny Lukac. His ability to capture unique moments to create strong storytelling will give this project an even deeper meaning.

Our team:
Bara Alich Photography – www.baraalichphotography.ie (that’s me)
Viedo – www.viedo.ie (Johny Lukac)
