Appointments usually last an hour or two. But please free up time for mickey to set up lights and cameras, then hold the interview and also to take some still photographers for inclusion in the project. Thank you
Where are you located?
I live in the San Diego area but travel to many locations to interview and photograph Veterans for inclusion in the project.
Do you accept reservations?
Yes is the simple answer to the question. Each appointment is set up as an individual session.
Group sessions have been set up when I visited a senior living facility or the Cal Vet homes in California. We like to separate appointments by at least 30 minutes so we have plenty of time to document each member's service.
How long is the typical interview?
Minimum appointments are 30 min but you should schedule an hour if you have lots of stories to share. I video and audiotape the interview for a very Thurow set of notes that I can reference back to while writing your stories.
