Mark Weiss - It’s time to give back with a little help from my photos!
I am often asked to donate classic rock photographs from my archives. I would have never imagined when I was 16 and sneaking my camera into concerts that I could make a living out of it, much less help out some people in my own hometown by donating the sale of these photos three decades later. My career as a photographer has been a dream come true, and it’s time to give back.
As many of you know, for the past three years I have been passionate about a campaign I started for LUNCH BREAK, the soup kitchen (and so much more) in my hometown of Red Bank, NJ. The campaign is entitled FEELS LIKE THE FIRST TIME and I am donating images from the first time I photographed the musicians in the 70s and 80s, with the proceeds benefitting LUNCH BREAK. After last year’s successful campaign raised more than $10,000, I have teamed up once again with Charitybuzz online auction for Round 2! This year’s auction runs from September 24 to October 15.
