Are you a budding photographer? Do you love Sabrina Carpenter? We have details on how you can combine those two loves this weekend.
The “On Purpose” singer will be returning home to PA and headlining Musikfest on August 12. She has teamed up with ArtsQuest, a very cool nonprofit that presents Musikfest, to offer a handful of student photographers the opportunity to photograph the first three songs of her concert from the media pit – only feet from the stage – as part of the festival’s unique PHOTOPASS program. All proceeds raised from the photography workshop will go to support Musikfest, the largest free music festival in the nation, with more than 500 free performances on 15 stages over 10 days.
During the Sabrina Carpenter workshop, students will work alongside veteran photographer Lisa Lake, who has photographed concerts for over 20 years for publications such as Rolling Stone, Guitar World, Hit Parader and The New York Times. All proceeds from PHOTOPASS go to support ArtsQuest’s Artist & Arts Education Funds, which help the nonprofit arts organization present the 500-plus free concerts at Musikfest annually, as well as a variety of arts and education programming for young people.
Participants can sign up for PHOTOPASS, which is limited to only six students, at www.musikfest.org.
This definitely sounds like an amazing opportunity. Not only will you get some invaluable experience, but you’ll be helping out a fantastic organization as well. And who doesn’t want a seat better than front row at a Sabrina Carpenter concert?
