Recently I photographed Miguel Garcia who's running for Riverside sheriff 2018. He needed some head shots for his campaign and some marketing images. So, as we were shooting we were chatting a little bit. I had a lot of questions about his election.
Well, what I got was a bit of education on the importance of voting locally. He said that we have roughly over 2 million people living in Riverside County. At our last Sheriff election, about 174 thousand people voted. There are 1 million people registered. Those statistics shocked me. I'm not going to lie, I'm one of those 1 million that didn't vote and it made me feel a little bit guilty.
What Miguel said to me was... If you want some real change locally. Faster and more efficiently. If you're concerned about your schools, your roads, the general well-being of your community. Voting locally shouldn't be looked over. It's just as important as voting for your nations president. This is where you’ll see change happen quicker.
Needless to say, his head shots came out great. I think we've got some strong images for branding. And, I promised that I will be educating myself and voting this year on June 5th 2018.
