Retired Salvation Army officer using his gift of photography
Click on the white arrow above to watch an audio slideshow created by my colleague John Docter.
When I began work for The Salvation Army almost 15 years ago I met a Salvation Army officer who volunteered his time to take professional-quality photographs of important events and activities.
Although he and his wife were the commanding officers at our Santa Monica worship and community center, he always seemed happy to give us his time.
We counted on him a lot and were grateful that the budget we would have spent hiring a photographer could be used on something else we needed. Stretching the donor dollar is the responsibility of everyone who works in nonprofit.
My colleague John Docter followed him around recently and turned the tables a bit: he took photos of Major Bawden in action and recorded some of his story.
I hope you enjoyed this audio slide show of a great guy with a passion to serve Jesus and take great pictures.
