Weʼre raising £2,000 to Pay for my time to photograph at charity events and not for profit /voluntary organisations for their future promotional material.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
So the idea started from the number of times I hear " we are charity or we don't have a budget for this ". Now I know it is always best that a charity raises as much as possible towards their cause and the not for profit organisations are community based providing what is best for the community but there is nothing in their budgets due to unexpected expenses or the income is there not to cover.
Now you might ask why do I not volunteer my services, to which my answer is I already do, having covered four major events this year and I have a another one in the pipeline.
The problem now is that income has to come first , like all photographers we have to earn a living , we have bills to pay.
The money will cover the charity/community events in the local area to Bournemouth which in turn will raise money to that event. The events I cover include charities, music, theatre and community.
I am also happy to cover any particular charity /community event that a donator would like particulary covered. Please contact me at email@example.com to discuss.
Donators will be able to receive at least low res logoed digital images of any events they request.
Examples of my photos can be found in Events Gallery , on my website although some of these were paid
This is a first tranch to test the waters, but this should cover approximately eight all day events at a special low rate .
