In January and February, 2011, over 60 volunteers from the Cleveland Photographic Society provided free professional-quality photos to attendees of the 20th Annual Homeless Stand Down. Participation was expanded this year to provide portraiture for both the Winter Clothing and Health Fair days at the Masonic Auditorium and documentary photography for the entire event. Over 670 portraits were taken, printed and delivered to guests as a part of this ongoing community effort to promote dignity and respect. CPS wishes to thank its volunteer photographers and the businesses who supported our efforts by providing materials and supplies: Dodd Camera, Albums, Inc., and Staples.

Tuesday September 1, 2009 we got a chance to visit LA live for the UFC 104 press conference with Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida and Mauricio "Shogun" Rua in attendance. It was amazing to see the UFC come back to Los Angeles with two of the top Brazilian fighters out there. This fight will take place at the Staples center as very few tickets our still available, and will also air on pay per view October 24, 2009. I can't wait as this fight will be a true test for both fighters.

I got annoyed with everyone dissing the camerawork in the other videos, so I went back to LA Live with a real video camera and shot a new version of the Nerkas Trailer. This time there was no music playing and you can hear the audio clearly. The game has been revealed as "Mindjack" by Square Enix
