Last weekend I had lunch with my friend Ashlee Redfern, a brilliant chef, translator and founder of Italian Inspirations who is for the first time putting all her skills to use with an upcoming guided culinary tour of Tuscany in November. This is a dream come true for Ashlee and a path towards blending her passion for Italian culture with a business built around embracing the love of la dolce vita. Our passions have the potential to aid each other as she invited me to help her to document the trip for publicity and marketing. This is an incredible opportunity to establish my professional career as an adventure and travel photographer and expand my burgeoning portfolio at Erinn J Hale Photography but here's the catch--she can cover my expenses once I arrive, but I need help in getting there.
One of my wonderfully inspiring friends suggested crowd sourcing the funding of the ticket to make this happen and if you know anything about me it's that I'm a huge believer in the power of community, so this is where you come in...Whatever you can contribute gets both Ashlee and I closer to making this a reality--another step forward toward my aspiration to document the adventures of fascinating individuals and non-profits around the world. The power of the visual and written story motivates me to keep sharing. Any support is deeply and truly appreciated.
