I shoot a lot of images for local creative arts organisations, many of which are charitable organisations with low/no budgets for marketing and promoting their events. I provide my time and skills free of charge, but sometimes what they really need is a studio space in which to create the right images.
Hiring studio space is expensive and although I can sometimes use portable equipment to help them to create a pop-up studio space in a church hall or community centre, I would really like to be able to offer a dedicated studio space to these organisations. In order to seek to do so, I plan to convert my garage at home into a studio space. I will need to spend a lot of money to do this (approx £15k in total)and I simply cannot afford to do it all myself.
In addition to helping out local creative arts charities and organisations, I intend to offer my photographic services to other charitable organisations and other deserving causes either free of charge or at substantially reduced rates. It will also enable me to offer services to local start-up businesses at low rates.
Your support would mean a huge amount to me and to the organisations I am seeking to help.
