Female Empowerment Project Published in 5ive For Women Magazine | Chippewa Valley’s Premiere Women’s Magazine

July 5, 2012 Travis Dewitz


5ive for Women is Chippewa Valley’s Premiere Women’s Magazine which is full of amazing stories of women giving back to the country and the community. This month’s issue (July | August 2012) features one of my photos from my Femme Forte Female Empowerment Photography Project. The Femme Forte participant is Jacquelyne Kukuk who has served our country with the United States Army.

From 5ive for Women’s website – 5ive for Women is the premier life-coach for today’s multidimensional woman. With an emphasis on equilibrium and personal growth, 5ive for Women encourages the on-the-go gal to pause for self-nurturing. We support wellness of the five life-features close to the heart and always on the mind of today’s contemporary woman—faith, family, friends, fitness, and finance. 5ive for Women is an invaluable one-stop resource honoring the individuality in each woman while promoting her sense of community.

Meet the 5ive for Women reader: She’s the high-powered professional and she’s the CEO of household and child affairs. She’s fashion-forward, fun, and active. She’s influential, intuitive, and in-control.  She recognizes life is a balancing act, but she’s up for the task. She is poised, determined, passionate, and proactive.

The women behind 5ive are community leaders, educators, and change-agents. We promote, nurture, advise, teach, inform, connect, and advocate. At 5ive, we strive to motivate, energize, and inspire camaraderie of the Chippewa Valley sisterhood. Our philosophy points towards a happy and fulfilled life.

We recognize there are no ordinary women. Today’s woman must manage numerous roles in an exciting, exhilarating, hectic, and occasionally exhausting adventure called life.

We are a magazine for extraordinary women. We are a platform. We are a collective voice. We are the go-to resource. We are encouragement. We are trend-setting. We are advocates of healthy priorities and fitness for life. We are what women want. We are 5ive for Women.

Our mission is simple, yet carefully designed for these complex times. 5ive for Women will genuinely connect with today’s intelligent, confident, go-getter woman through insightful articles and thought-provoking features. We will empower and uplift—addressing the not-so-simple balance between faith, family, friends, fitness, and finance.

I. Love. Photography. I love it. It lightens my heart, fills my soul, and allows me to capture life the way that I see it. I constantly yearn to show life in a way that hasn’t been seen before, to bring images to people in a fresh and innovative way. My favorite focus in photography, my specialty I guess you would say, is Railroad Photography & Art. Something about the rumbling of these great, big, beautiful machines. The way they shake the earth beneath you as they rumble by, how they invade your chest and you can feel the rumble inside you. The plumes of heat on a hot day represented in a heat wave. Snaking through a western valley, void of trees or any other distracting element. Just the train, by itself, in it’s own inexplicable beauty and power. From the time I was a child, they have captured my imagination. I’ve recently gotten into portraiture a bit, and I want to bring some of my experiences with trains to that arena. To capture the power of a person, the sadness, loneliness, omniscience, pride, love, & carefree spirit in a way that hasn’t been done before. I want people to look at themselves in a photograph I have taken, and see a side of themselves that they think no one else has ever seen. Dewitz Photography is all about capturing a moment in a way that has never been seen before, capturing a beauty that some never knew was even there.
