Photography Studio Fundraiser

Hi, my name is Jasper Forrest Kearsley, founder of Jasper Forest Photo/Media.

Jasper Forest Photo is a Photo and Video production company that focuses raw creative effort into finished products, whether it is a small scale          marketing campaign, short or long content video, events or portraiture, the end goal is always to satisfy and exceed the expectations of the client. 
Jasper Forest Photo was founded in October 2020, but has been built from decades of experience in Digital Photography. Much of the mentoring has come from published, established and prominent Artists and Creators from across New England. With these resources, I have been lucky enough to 
reap the benefits of those around me who have supported me and critiqued my work.

It has taken me about 5 years to narrow down what exactly I wish to do with my time right now. I want to create, relate, share, inspire, and give back 
in a way that can help others. My media production company will mainly be an online venture for the short-term, with very little in-person business
being done. This is due to the current state of the world and with the safety of others in mind, however, there are plans to branch out in future
endeavors. The financial and business "guru" or "influencer" market has become a thriving area for new content creators on Youtube, Blogs and many other online platforms. Some people talk about stocks, some people focus on real-estate, others do purely Youtube channel tips to help people grow 
their channels. I want to fall somewhere in the middle, helping young people to get into the mindset of Smart Money Practices, Investing, Business 
tips, Video tutorials, and other related content.

Some people have said that it is the worst job market to start a business in, and others seem quite optimistic. I happen to fall in the latter train of
thought. Maybe I was raised to be optimistic and seek out opportunity, however, I do know that I have been a witness to hard work paying off for
those who believe in themselves and their own success. The videos on my Youtube channel will be dedicated to inspiring people to adopt this kind of mindset, believe in themselves and become creative with their own Business ideas. 

My goal with this fundraiser is to take my business/Youtube Channel to the next level as I believe this platform will help create a stream of income
that will be beneficial to my over-all business. This will take place over the next year and will mainly focus on a list of goals.

The list consists of 10 major steps in no particular order.

1) Recording/Business Studio
2) Financial Consulting/LLC
3) Equipment for Business
4) Marketing/Advertisement
5) Scheduling/Booking campaign
6) Contracts/Packages
7) Protection/Copyrights
8) Call Cards & Scripts
9) Hire a Second
10) Expand with Learning

This list does prioritize having a physical studio/location in which filming, photo shoots, editing and consolidation of work-flow. Much of this
fundraiser is focused on securing a studio and financing for the equipment needed for production. Lights, Backdrops, Recording equipment and other items will be a small portion of this fundraiser, but are accounted for. 

In the meantime, I will continue to create videos on both of my Youtube channels, working towards my own goals and hoping to inspire others to work towards their own! I appreciate the support I have received, and I look forward to being able to give back to those who have helped me get to where I am now.

Thank you

- Jasper Forest
