Shooting Beauty is a community outreach initiative that provides programs aimed at challenging stereotypes that prevent inclusive attitudes and inclusive communities.  The initiative centers around the award winning documentary film, Shooting Beauty, that tells the story of Courtney Bent, an aspiring fashion photographer who begins to redefine beauty when she starts a photography program for people with disabilities.


Shooting Beauty is now a nationwide initiative and program that provides photography workshops for children and adults with disabilities,  disability awareness programming for schools and universities, workshop grants for organizations that serve people with disabilities, as well as diversity training workshops for businesses and corporations. 


Most recently, the Shooting Beauty team has partnered with Velcro USA, Inc to create The 100 Cameras Project which will place free adapted camera systems in the hands 100 children and adults with disabilities throughout the country.  Please help make this project a reality by contributing NOW
