Kevin Kubota Receives Monte Zucker Memorial Humanitarian Award at WPPI Convention


Bend, Ore.-based photographer Kevin Kubota was awarded the third annual Monte Zucker Memorial Humanitarian Award during the Wedding & Portrait Photographers' International Convention and Trade Show, held in Las Vegas.

Kubota received the award for his philanthropic work with Bend's Family Photo Day in the Park, Habitat for Humanity, the Family Resource Center, Head Start and the Sparrow Club. Last July, Kubota temporarily closed his businesses so that his staff could visit and assist with orphanages in Rwanda.

The Monte Zucker award is presented each year to artists who are actively involved in their community and with charitable work.
