JC Stoops Photo Project

[Update: I am no longer taking new donations or photo shoot sign ups.  Thank you all so much for your interest and generosity to helping your neighbors. You can donate directly to Hudson County Hunger Project 's via the HCHP GoFundMe page . ] 

Welcome to the JC Stoops Photo Project

Many of us are stuck in our homes, going a little stir-crazy and feeling a bit helpless. Some of us are lucky enough to be gainfully employed while others are suddenly out of work. Since I am one of the lucky ones, I have been looking for a way to give back to the local community and was inspired by a photo project that others have done. 

I'm offering a photo of you and your family on your stoop or outside your front door or through a window, from an appropriate  social distance (10 feet+) and am following all legal and recommended protocols set forth by NJ and Jersey City.  In exchange, I am asking for a donation to support those who are impacted by our current situation. 100% of proceeds will be given to Hudson County Hunger Project  . 

After a donation of any amount is made (suggested minimum is $30), I’ll deliver your file(s) digitally via email. There is no charge for musicians, artists, healthcare professionals and other essential service personnel.

Photos will take just a few minutes and be done on select evenings/weekends.  

Requests for photos can be made HERE  .  I’ll contact you with details if/when I can make it to you. No promises, I’ll do my best with the time I have. Thanks for understanding.
