I bought my Canon Eos 5D and several lenses back in 2007 when I was still earning professionally from my photography. Since then I've been mostly working for free (or perhaps I should say 'for love'?) supporting lots of charities, non-profit organisations, community projects and many other worthy causes that I felt were deserving of attention and support.
The biggest test for me was when the digital revolution enabled anyone to produce decent images, without all the specialist knowledge that I'd spent years acquiring. With ever more people competing for paid work (and many more hobbyists willing to take work on for nothing) I had to decide whether to give it up or find a new way forward. That's when I realised that if I was meant to continue my 'calling', the universe would somehow find ways to provide what I needed, so I simplified my life in order to survive on much less.
So here I am asking the universe (and all of you) whether I'm meant to carry on sharing the love through my work, by shining a light on those who share my vision of a world of kindness, care and compassionate understanding. So please, if you enjoy what I do and would like to see me continue documenting life's unsung heroes and the joy they bring to those less fortunate, give me a sign (by way of a few quid) to replace my worn out camera and broken lens so I can carry on the good work?
Many thanks and blessings in advance for your generosity!
Love Stone :) xxx

WOW! I just took a sneaky peak at my campaign, hoping there might have been the odd quid or two donated so far, but I wasn't prepared for what I found; a whole bunch of tenners and twenties, so I'm rather moist-eyed as I type this. I feel truly blessed for the show of love and support so far - thank you all from the deepest depths of my much-swelled blood-pumping love organ! <3 xxx
