Weʼre raising £500 to pay it forward to NHS & Keyworkers in the form of print credits to go with their free Family Portrait Sessions with Gemma Varney Photography
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
To thank our local heroes myself, Kate Dixon Photography and The Guild of Photographers have teamed up to provide a range of photography related offers and free sessions for those who are looking after us all during these tricky times.
I will be offering free studio family portraits to 10 NHS/Keyworker families with 10 Digital files per family absolutely free of charge, the photo shoot will take place in my good friend and fellow photographer Kate Dixon's shop in Honiton high street, Devon once it is safe to do so.
This page is for people who wish to 'Pay it forward' and say thank you to our local heroes by purchasing print credits for those families who come along to the sessions, you can assign print credits to a nominated family by print screening your donation confirmation email and forwarding it to me with a note of which family you want the credits to go to, or you can freely give to any family we have in the studio.
To give an idea of what print credits mean in physical terms:
£10 credit = one 7x5inch print
£20 credit = two 7x5inch print OR a 12x8 inch print
£40 credit = 20x16inch print or four 7x5inch prints or two 12x8 inch print
You can donate whatever amount you wish.
If we get a good response and raise enough I will open up the offer to photograph more families for free, so please do share this with your family and friends. Now more than ever the importance of our family and friends is really highlighted.
The Guild of Photographer's is supporting myself and many other Photographer's who are giving away sessions like these throughout the country. So if you don't live in the Honiton area or want to nominate someone in another part of the country you can go to the guild of photographers website and see who else is offering such sessions. (I'll pop a link here once the offers are published)
Nominations of NHS and Keyworkers will be taken through my facebook page. With those who are successful receiving a facebook message and invitation to claim their shoot in advance with a date being decided once it is safe to shoot in the studio.
