Key West to Maine exploration

Raised by 1 person in 12 months
I am a Travel Photographer and Videographer and in essence an explorer. I have traveled the country logging over three million miles by road while working with various companies and have seen the beauty that the US has to offer plus Canada, Mexico and some Island Nations. Seven years ago and after a job related injury, my job ended. Yes, it was a struggle to lose the income but we made due with what God gave us. At that time, I decided to turn a hobby into a profession as it seemed that no one wanted to hire an over 50 partially disabled person.  Many of my images can be found on my on line photo gallery  www.kjones.photo or my Facebook page or the occasional gallery showing.  

First, please understand I am not destitute and can’t pay my bills or something or the sort! I am blessed with all that I have and with all that comes my way which at many times is very meager but I am appreciative for it. There are many people (and animals) in our world that need finacial support and I do donate proceeds from my earnings to different charities each year. This gofundme.com account was developed to seek funding donations to go along with Corporate Sponsorship and my own funds to set out on an East Coast Exploration Expedition.

Your donation will help me to support my goal to document the beautiful coastline of the Eastern United States with my camera and to be able to share these images and video with people around the world to bring awareness of what each coastal city and state has in store for them.   My plan is to take time during the next few months as funding comes available to travel and shoot areas from Key West, Florida to Saint Andrews, Maine. Covering roughly 2400 miles of land and sea that I would explore popular including popular destinations and places off the beaten paths.

My goal is to attract the attention of publishers with my photos and blog post while traveling, shooting and writing to be awarded some contract jobs as well as build up my stock photos to sell on line through companies such as shutterstock.com.  My adventures will be posted on my new blog site where photos, videos and stories will be posted about where my supporters can follow me.

How will I use the donated money? The funds will help to supplement the cost of travel such as food and gas and the occasional hotel room while on the road.  I have already invested in all the equipment and cameras that I need for this expedition with the exception of a quadcopter drone for arial photos and video.

What shall you expect in return? Not only, will you be kept up to date with my blog site and Facebook page, but I plan to offer incentives from signed prints and frames to travel style DVD's and slideshows.

I hope you all will join me as I will keep you all updated via Social Media sites.

In closing, I would like to thank everyone who supports all artists here on www.GOFUNDME.COM

I have updated the story of why I am seeking funding. I admit and after reading other people's stories on GFM it seemed that I needed to seem at least a little desperate. I am not. My business on the other hand is surviving month to month. but that is the way it's been for the past few years which is not uncommon for a small business. I've uploaded a couple more photos and I am working on a video to upload soon.
