As this Memorial Day rolls around on Monday May 30, 2011, we had some ideas of giving back to past war veterans to honor serving our country. And what better way then to capture an image with pride and honor.
So, we partnered with Westcott Top Pro and Professional Photographer Michael Corsentino to do just that. He donated his time and we donated the equipment to provide something for some amazing individuals. Each of these men survived events in our history such as Pearl Harbor that changed America forever.

Give Back this Memorial Day
We love giving back to the individuals who have served our country! So, now we are enlisting the help of you – our social media family, friends and followers to make a difference! So what is it we ask? We are asking for each of you to go out this weekend, and photograph a veteran or even an active service man or woman. As photographers you have an opportunity to share what these service men and women resemble as part of American history – past, present and future as well as honor and pride. We hope that you will take the challenge!
Once you have completed this task, we ask that you tag your photos to our ‘Official Westcott Group’ on Flickr. You have until June 3, 2011 at 3:00pm ET. All images submitted will be added into a contest where a winner will be randomly chosen and receive a prize from Westcott!! So, are you up for the challenge? We hope that you will be!! So get out there and give back this Memorial Day! We can’t wait to see everyone’s images!
