March is pretty sweet for two big reasons: it's the start of spring and, every other year, it marks Month of Photography here in Denver. And while we do enjoy Colorado's rather extreme spring weather, you can probably guess that we're a little more excited about the latter. As a photography company that places great emphasis on community involvement, the gang here at From the Hip Photo is pretty darned proud to have partnered with the Colorado Photographic Arts Center. It's the only nonprofit in Denver, Colorado that is dedicated exclusively to photography in all its myriad, wondrous forms! They offer a plethora of workshops and portfolio reviews, offer equipment rentals to further one's photography education, and curate some pretty spectacular
What better way to kick off the New Year than with some good old-fashioned comedy? We had the privilege of sponsoring 50 First Jokes Denver 2017 at The Bug Theatre. In the spirit of a new year, the 50 First Jokes comedy event brought together 50 of Denver's best comedians to deliver their very first jokes of 2017.
The Mortified Denver debut was a huge success and we couldn't have been more honored to be a part of their live show. When we heard they were bringing their antics to the Mile High City we knew we had to be involved as we are huge fans of their riotously funny podcast. If you haven't heard of Mortified before, take a break and listen right now. We promise you won't be disappointed!
The Ratio Beerworks Major Nights Lime Gose beer release event was not your standard craft beer release. Normally, you and your friends would arrive at the brewery, take a seat at the rustic bar, and order the new beer. But release a beer in conjunction with a kick-ass air guitar tournament and there will be nothing but excitement surrounding the news!
We understand that networking events have a (mostly deserved) bad reputation... But would you still pass one up with a Polynesian theme hosted by the creative crew over at CultureHaus? Definitely not. Bring on the colorful drinks and imaginative people! As an awesome comrade and sponsor of the Denver Art Museum partner, we were happy to attend and photograph the recent Polynesian Picnic with CultureHaus!
Warm Cookies of the Revolution is a group that strives to make civic engagement, grassroots activism, and community involvement approachable and fun. Or, as their mission statement puts it, "We are a community Civic Health Club making the questions “What do we want?” and “How do we get there?” engaging, collaborative, and fun!" We were lucky enough to attend one of their summer events, Stompin' Ground Games, complete with lowrider classic cars, and of course, warm cookies!
When Torchy's Tacos expanded into the Colorado scene this past year, the reception was nothing short of ecstatic! Folks lined up around the block for a taste of the Austin-based company's sensational tacos and refreshing margaritas. We're suckers for their envy-inducing green chile queso and are also big fans of their business model and free-wheeling personality. That's why we were elated to team up with them recently on the grand opening of the new Torchy's Tacos Greenwood Village location!
Tasty beer, hip hop, and warm summer Denver weather made for a perfect combination for the third "release" in our Exposure! series! Let's relive all the fun from our August Exposure! happy Hour at Fort Greene in Globeville.
Each May, the Denver Dumb Friends League holds The Furry Scurry dog walk fundraiser in order to raise money for medical care, training, and other important services for the homeless pets of Colorado. The Furry Scurry 2016 included a fun two mile dog walk around Washington Park in Denver and a flea market filled with 150 vendors and sponsors offering a variety of pet-focused services. Our photo team had so much fun photographing the event and running our adorable puppy photo booth!
