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.
