The Public Health is seeking volunteer models to participate in a professional outdoor photoshoot on Wednesday, August 26 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at a central city location.  The goal is to reflect the wonderful diversity of our community with an emphasis on photos that depict healthy eating and physical activity.  This call is open to all residents of Curve Lake First Nation, Hiawatha First Nation, Peterborough City and County, and no previous modelling experience is required.  The Public Health is especially reaching out to same-sex couples/families, LGBT residents, new Canadians, and older adults to ensure they are reflected in future public health materials.

The photos will be promoting a variety of topics such as active living in our community and nutrition, including:

  • Picnicking (snacks will be provided)
  • Playing badminton
  • Cycling with proper helmets
  • Children crossing the street with a crossing guard
  • Playing hopscotch
  • Interacting with a community garden
  • Playing soccer
  • Practicing sun safety (wearing hats and sunglasses, applying sun screen, etc.)

The photos will be used by Public Health for a variety of online and print materials such as promotional brochures, reports, Public Health website (www.peterboroughpublichealth.ca), community displays, and presentations.  This photoshoot is being coordinated by Public Health’s Communications Team, and all participants will be asked to sign consent forms.  For more information, or to become involved in the photoshoot please contact Jordan Pegutter at jpegutter@peterboroughpublichealth.ca or call 705-743-1000 extension 296.
