Help a Fellow Photographer Get a New Wheelchair
Jaleel King is a great wedding and fashion photographer from Philadelphia, but other than being very talented, he’s also a very special and strong person. When Jaleel was 8 years old, his neighbor shot him with a shotgun and left him paralyzed from his waist down. Since that incident Jaleel have to use a wheelchair to move around. His current wheelchair is 6 years old and breaking apart, but insurance companies deny any of his requests for a new and safer wheelchair. This is where the photography community comes in – let’s help Jaleel get a new wheelchair today!
Here at Fstoppers we always like to help fellow photographers in need, and feel it’s more important than posting another editing technique or cool photos taken from a kite. Let’s prove once again how awesome of a community we are.
