Raych Jackson “Dragon”

Raych Jackson is a phenomenal spoken-word artist, 3rd Grade teacher in Chicago Public Schools, and all around super human. Here is the first of hopefully many collaborations to come:

Slow Flowers Indiegogo

Debra Prinzing came into my life as Ben’s mom and has now become one of my greatest inspirations. She is arguably the greatest advocate for locally grown flowers, writing books and publishing a weekly podcast (which I have the honor of editing) to gain momentum for this movement.

She is working to raise funds for a new website, Slowflowers.com, that will act as an online directory of sustainability-focused florists and farmers across the country. Please consider contributing to her Indiegogo campaign here.

My brother Luke and I created the informational video on the Indiegogo campaign page as a promotional piece for potential donors. At this point, the campaign has already raised more than $1000 each day since it launched. What a fantastic reflection of the flower community!

 

 

Community Partnerships Video

At my current job, I work for the Community Partnerships Department of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I made this for new and potential students to get an emotional visual of what we do:

The Chicago School of Professional Psychology: Faculty & Staff Service Month

I’ve been an AmeriCorps VISTA at The Chicago School since August and have jumped right in with my camera. I made this video for internal (and now external!) marketing purposes — it’s exciting to see my work expand to larger audiences.

Video Portrait: Remy – Age 1

In the midst of many recent life changes (graduating from college, moving into a new apartment, starting my first full-time job), I’ve managed to still be lucky enough to work with loving family and capture moments of love.

This video is of Remy, now one-year-old. This is a “video portrait” – a way to capture the wobbles, wiggles, and wide blinking eyes of a child’s young movements in these fleeting moments. Interested in something similar for someone in your life? Contact me at hannahholtgeerts@gmail.com.
