Las Vegas Event Photography of Opportunity Village Camelot Black Tie Event

November 16, 2015 | By | No Comments

I love helping out my favorite charity with Las Vegas Event photography at Opportunity Village. Camelot is the annual Black Tie fundraiser where very generous friends of OV come together to support what is perhaps the finest facility in America for intellectually and physically disabled adults.

Opportunity Village is my very favorite charity in Las Vegas, and perhaps anywhere. I love how they empower intellectually and physically disabled young people and adults with real jobs, paychecks and skills, people who – in another time and place – might waste away in front of a TV set. I love how they involve the community to give and to donate time and money to this mission. I love how efficiently OV squeezes as much from every voluntarily donated penny as they can.

Any time OV asks me to lend a hand with my photography my answer is always “yes” when I am available.

Please enjoy these photos from today’s wonderful IT Girl Spring Garden Party and Fashion Show – and look how beautiful and happy the fashion show OVIP models are! Notice, too, how individuals and companies throughout the community donated their time today. From catering and cook and wait staff, to decor and event planning, to styling, to different groups of young people from UNLV. OV is the gold standard of voluntary civil society.

Las Vegas Event Photography – Opportunity Village – Camelot black tie fundraiser 2014 honoring Penn Jillette

November 7, 2014 | By | No Comments

I am privileged any time the folks at my favorite Las Vegas charity – Opportunity Village – ask me to document their annual fundraising event, Camelot. This last week was my 3rd or 4th time in the 5 years we’ve lived in Vegas. I love shooting Las Vegas event photography anyway, but it is even more enjoyable when I am documenting for a truly uplifiting group, an exceptionally well run charity that has positive impact on the daily lives of hundreds of intellectually and developmentally disabled adults who, in another place and time, might be throw away people. I am grateful for the existence of Opportunity Village, and for the uncountable hours of all the staff and volunteers and donors who make it possible.3E2A1271.JPG-Las-Vegas-Event-Photography-Penn-Jillette-STEVEN-JOSEPH-PHOTOGRAPHYPenn and Emily are a little verklempt while watching a video showing their works for Opportunity Village.Las Vegas Event Photography STEVEN JOSEPH PHOTOGRAPHY Penn Jillette honored by Opportunity VillagePenn tearing up a little seeing a video of all the awesome stuff he does for Opportunity Village.4D8A6175.JPG-Las-Vegas-Event-Photography-Penn-Jillette-STEVEN-JOSEPH-PHOTOGRAPHY 3E2A0614.CR2-Las-Vegas-Event-Photography-Penn-Jillette-STEVEN-JOSEPH-PHOTOGRAPHY Las Vegas Event Photographer STEVEN JOSEPH PHOTOGRAPHY Penn Jillette Penn & Teller Opportunity VillagePenn Jillette belting out a punk version of Lou Reed’s “Sweet Jane” – he shook the house.3E2A1053.JPG-Las-Vegas-Event-Photography-Penn-Jillette-STEVEN-JOSEPH-PHOTOGRAPHYBilly Walters always looks like he’s having fun.
