Kelowna photographer shoots candidate selfies for charity

Candidates strike a pose

Kelowna photographer Nicole Richard has combined her love of photography and politics for a good cause.

MP candidates in the Central Okanagan-Similkameen-Nicola and Kelowna-Lake Country ridings posed for the Richard in a more relaxed setting.

The public will get a chance to vote for their favourite photo by donation to the youth recovery house project by The Bridge Youth & Family Services.

“A youth recovery house is so desperately needed in the Okanagan,” says Richard. “We currently have zero youth recovery beds in Kelowna.

"The great people at The Bridge have set out to change that. I’ve created a fun way for people to get involved with the upcoming election buzz and give back to the community at the same time.”

One dollar equals one vote, and all donations go directly to The Bridge. Donations of $10 or more receive a tax receipt.  

All the votes will be calculated, and the winning candidate's photo announced. 

The fun vote started Tuesday and concludes Oct. 14 at 9 p.m. at www.KelownaPhotoVote.com
