Chatting With Sherri chats with photographer; Michael Strider about the LifeAfter Project !
Shortly after high school Michael Strider purchased his first professional camera. Eager to hone his craft, he photographed everything he could, ranging from models and architecture, to his dog, Randy. However, after sneaking his camera into a concert he quickly discovered his real passion was photographing Rock Stars.
Since that time Michael has worked with nearly every Rock Star on Earth. He’s expanded his portfolio to include actors, supermodels, world leaders and the occasional female wrestler.
On September 9, 2006, while having dinner with his friends, Michael received a call that would change his life forever. One of his best friends committed suicide by gunshot. His name was Matthew. Devastated, Michael blamed himself for not seeing the problem Matthew had been living with. He had no idea Matthew was suffering from Bi-Polar Disorder.
After years of research and very detailed planning, Michael created the LifeAfter project to help those suffering from similar suicidal tendencies. LifeAfter – Visions of Hope is a coffee table book of celebrities that are advocates of suicide prevention. The phrase LifeAfter means there is life after any issue that someone may feel that makes him or her question their very being. Every problem passes, no matter how enormous it may seem.
The LifeAfter Project will spread awareness throughout our nation and throughout the world. His charity auction; https://www.charitybuzz.com/support/lifeafterproject
