The Faces of Freedom Project Portraits
I had the privilege this past Veterans Day weekend to create portraits of a number of veterans for The Faces of Freedom Project at the 2019 Salute to Veterans at the Los Alamitos Racetrack in Los Alamitos, CA. It was a beautiful Fall evening – live band, the thrill of the horse races, and the smells of hot dogs and nachos wafting over the stands.
Thank you again to my wonderful friends who assisted with the portrait session that day. I cannot do this alone. Your help was invaluable. And thanks again to Ann Victor for allowing me to be a part of this fantastic celebration honoring the men and women of our armed forces.
If you had your portrait done that day, feel free to download the 5×7 printable version from the gallery below. To download, click on the smaller thumbnail image to view the full size image. Then, right-click on the full size image to save to your computer.
(Please note: these portraits are for personal use of the participants only, and may not be used for marketing / advertising, or any other purpose. Please do not alter the images in any way – i.e., cropping, coloring, etc.).
The Faces of Freedom Project is a simple effort to say “Thank you for your service” to our US military veterans and active duty personnel through the medium of professional portraiture. There is never any cost to the veteran to participate. If you are a veteran (or active duty military), or know someone who is, please spread the word. I’d love to include them in this portrait project.
Thank you again for your service! If you’d like to be kept informed of upcoming Faces of Freedom Project events, please like The Faces of Freedom Project Facebook Page

Your generosity of time and talent is so appreciated. When people said photographs Capture one’s Soul they must have thought of your incredible work. You bring so much joy to those who see the photographs of the people who served and protected our Nation.
I remain in awe of your creativity and talent.
Thank you for the beautiful picture.
Thanks so much!! Great Pictures. May GOD Bless you.
