Two Prints And Their Proceeds Devoted To Africa Arise

I’m in the middle of putting together a full proposal for a foundation that I hope will do some tremendous work in the future.  As things get developed I am initiating the beginning phase of the foundation by devoting all of the proceeds from the sales of two of my prints to benefit the ministry of Africa Arise.

Last weekend I was a part of a fundraising Arts night for Africa Arise.  I donated two framed prints to be sold at the fundraiser.  The events of that night and the story of the Acholi people of Uganda had a profound effect on me.  The takeaway for me from the event was that the easiest way to get in the way of injustice is to tell the story.  If people knew the stories of injustice, they would be compelled to stand up for justice.  I don’t want to say too much about my foundation as there is still plenty to sort out, but Shutters For Change will further dedicate these two images to raising funds and awareness for social justice.  Stay tuned.

Visual Word Of The Day – Impecunious

26 Mar

Impecunious – \im-pih-KYOO-nee-uhs\ , adjective;

Not having money; habitually without money; poor.
visual word of the day - impecunious
the impecunious nature of my wallet and pants can be changed when you purchase prints and book portrait sessions. . . Just saying.

Starbucks Gallery

18 Jul

Can I tell you how excited I am to be on display?! I’m not actually sure that I can do it with words. I’ve actually spoken with a few different Starbucks locations, and will be putting my stuff on their walls as well. Right now the Starbucks at Yonge and Avondale has agreed to show my photography for a month, from there, the work is supposed to move to the location at Bathurst and Wilson, and then The Beach location next spring. These are the pictures that are on display right now. So what do you do once you start getting a little public exposure?
I was finishing up Trevor and Zuska’s engagement shoot today (pics to be posted soon) and as we were setting up a shot, a lady came up to me and said “Are you like a ‘real’ photographer?” hmmm, well I am on display…….
