Photographers for Japan

by on Mar.16, 2011, under News Commentary, Photography

After last week’s terrible earthquake and tsunami in Japan, a group of photographers and bloggers led by Oliver Fluck have decided to help out by donating print sale profits to aid in the recovery effort. I am joining this project so will be donating 100% of profits made from any print or merchandise sale via ImageKind, SmugMug or my photoblog between now and April 15th to the American Red Cross.

These sites offer various print sizes with costs from $3 for a greeting card up to $1000+ for a large canvas but there should be something there for every pocket. SmugMug also sells other items like fridge magnets, T-shirts, mouse pads and other similar gift items.

These other photographers are taking part in this effort:

Looking for a Videographer

by on Nov.13, 2010, under Photography

A group of HDR photographers I am involved with on Facebook is trying to pull together a charity project and we’re looking for a skilled videographer who would be interested in helping us out. The plan is to produce a DVD containing examples of our work along with hints and tips on improving your HDR work and we need someone who can cut the whole thing together nicely and add a soundtrack. If you are experienced at that kind of work and interested in helping out, please leave a comment or drop me a line via the contact form.

People involved so far include (in no particular order) Scott Wyden Kivowitz, Oliver Fluck, Scott Frederick, Trey Ratcliff, Jacob Lucas, Pat O’Brien, Mike Olbinski, Phil Cohen, James Howe, Brian Matiash, Bob Lussier, David Nightingale, Jeff Revell, CJ Kern and Jacques Gudé.

We’ve not finalised on a charity that will benefit from any proceeds yet but the current front runner deals with providing clean water supplies to third-world villages. I’ll post more news as the project progresses.
