If you haven't already heard/read about the aims and goals of the project, please have a read of that post.
This post highlights what charities who opt to take advantage of the project can expect, and what the expectation of them is. Hopefully, it will help you (the charity) decide whether there is any value for you in the project.
What size charities are you willing to work with?
Ideally, I'm looking to help smaller, local charities with the FREE photography services and images offering.
I will be donating to larger, national charities a percentage of revenue earned from sales of stock photography images, limited edition prints and 10% of any earnings from paid work I pick up along my travels.
What sort of charities are you looking to work with?
I'm willing to work with charities aligned with any work. I currently have ongoing photography projects into Mental Health and Homelessness so charities aligned with these sectors are of especial interest. Other charities I'd love to support are:
Cancer research and support
Alzheimer's research and support
Animal sanctuaries and conservation
Elderly care and support
This is not an exhaustive list, and I'd love to hear from any local charities.
How will you decide which charities to work with?
Depending on the interest in the project by local charities, I'd be looking to donate at least 2 days a week to working with charities in the area I am visiting at the time. Therefore, it may not always be possible to work with every charity that has expressed an interest in the project.
If this is the case, then I will prioritise those charities whom I feel I can help the most with professional images.
As much as I'd love to be in a position to offer free charity work on a daily basis, I do have to attempt to generate income along my road trip to be in a position to continue offering the free photography services and images.
What does a charity get from your free photoshoot project?
Each charity that I select to work with will receive UP TO 1 DAY of my time and photography services.
How long I spend with you will be confirmed once we have had a discussion about what photography you require and I can work out the duration required. It may be that I can look to fit two local charities into a single day depending on the requirements.
You will also receive FREE images of YOUR choice. The number of images is reasonably restricted, see details below.
How many images will our charity get for free?
This depends on the nature of the photoshoot but will be confirmed when we discuss your requirements and confirm your booking.
If you are requiring headshots of your staff, you will receive one image of YOUR choice PER staff member.
If you are requiring 'lifestyle' type shots of your charity at work (for example nurses or carers caring for their patients, staff working at desks/on the streets etc) then you will receive up to 15 FREE images of YOUR choice.
How can I use the images you supply?
Images are supplied with a COMMERCIAL license.
This means that you are free to use the images to post to your social media outlets (assuming you have any), on your website, in marketing campaigns both online or in print etc.
Are there any restrictions to the use of the images?
All I do ask is that you credit me when posting/publishing the images. This is to get exposure for the project and encourage other charities to get in touch!
In addition, you CAN NOT sell the images.
Can more images be purchased?
Yes. If after your allocation of free images, there are still further images you would like for your charity, then these can be purchased at discounted rates for charities. These will also be provided with a commercial license based on the above restriction.
What do you expect from the charity?
My expectation is simple, respect my time and other charities.
I have already had a few charities who have agreed with me a date to come and deliver free photography services to, only to have them cancel the day (or two) before the photoshoot was due to take place.
