Assignment: Encuentros

Encuentros is a non-profit Latino outreach program aimed at reducing the drop-out rate among Latino boys through mentoring. I was surprised to find out that nearly 40% of Latino boys do not graduate from High School... and there are more young Latinos in Prison than there are in college. Encuentros is doing great things... and I enjoyed helping them raise awareness for this amazing cause.
Here are a handful of the images from the day... which will serve as print & web collateral for the organization.


  • Great pictures, Aaron! I especially like the one through the mirror (amazing the way his hair lines up!) and the one in front of the orange lockers (good school association).

  • Thanks again for offering your talents to this project. In addition to your great eye for composition I am really impressed with how well you set up your shots at this location without prior scouting. Awesome work!

Thanks for stopping by! Creativity is ubiquitous: whether you are cognizant of it or not, you create every day. I encourage you to channel it if you haven't already... you may be surprised of what you are capable of. My name is Aaron, and the images on this site are creations of my own... my perspective of the world. I hope you enjoy what you see.
