Joplin Photographer Raises Funds For ModelsDPMag Published in Blog
Beauty photographer Brian DeMint is the subject of an upcoming profile in the pages of Digital Photo Pro magazine. He's also based in Joplin, Missouri, which was devastated by a tornado on May 22nd. Brian and his family were unharmed, but two of his models were not so lucky. Rose Dominguez and Jeniffer Roberts were lucky to survive the tornado. Jeniffer's family home was destroyed, along with all of its contents. Brian has been able to provide some immediate relief with donated clothes and toiletries, but the family is still desperately in need of much more. Rose was injured during the tornado when her car was thrown end over end. Along with minor injuries, she fractured vertebrae in her lower back. Now she is unable to work for at least six weeks, and with no medical insurance the bills are piling up. To help raise funds on behalf of these models, Brian has created a ChipIn page to collect donations. "No amount is too small," Brian writes, "and every penny is sincerely appreciated. We love our girls and want to help them through these most difficult of times." To contribute, please visit Brian's ChipIn page at http://eyeworksmodels.chipin.com/mypages/view/id/08e134fa9a3a6e85
