JDRF Charity Photoshoot 2015
FUTURE DATE TBC
Charity Photoshoot in aid of JDRF
Rob Ferrol Photography is creating another fantastic opportunity for photographers while at the same time raising some much needed funds for a worthy charity.
After the success of the last two charity events we have decided to organise another in September this year. To find out all about what you missed see our blog post here.
We will be organising a group of models to come together for a mass TFP/portfolio day at the beautiful Rufford Abbey Country Park on 13th September 2015. The last event was very well attended and both the models & photographers went away with a huge boost to their portfolios.
The event is being organised to raise funds for the Childrens charity JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation . A charity that is close to my heart as it exists to find a cure for type 1 Diabetes, a condition which my 7 year old son. Andrew was diagnosed T1 at the young age of 3 and has a huge impact on his daily life. Additionally, over the last 3 years we have become friends with may other families of children affected by T1 and this has further bolstered our desire to help JDRF find a cure by raising the much needed charitable funds.
To form the basis of the fundraising I am asking for a registration fee of £20 per photographer and £10 per model. When you consider the benefits of having the opportunity to shoot in a fantastic setting and as a collective group of models & photographers, this is a very small sum to ask. Spaces will be limited so everyone gets plenty of time with each model to capture some stunning images. With this in mind prior registration and payment will be required.
I will also have a few professional photographers who can help and assist you to get the shots you want and also guidance on off camera flash and posing etc. This still has to be confirmed at present.
If you are a photographer, amateur or professional, and would like to be involved in this very worthy cause while at the same time adding a huge selection of images to your portfolio then get in touch, we'd love to have you join us. The creative networking possibilities are endless and many participants from the last event have gone on to collaborate with the models & photographers on many other photoshoots.
Once we have the models confirmed we will launch our Justgiving page and start the registration process for you to reserve your place.
By taking part photographers agree to provide models with a CD/email with a selection of images taken during the photoshoot. It mussed be stressed that this is a family friendly event, all models MUST be 18 or over.
There is still lots to plan for this event and updates will be posted here and on my facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/robferrolphotography
Here's what some of the participants said about the last event
This photo shoot was my very first shoot with models and other photographers that I didn't know, and may say that I enjoyed it very much.
The models were patient and very helpful. My hats off to them all for braving the cold and been professional in their work. Also may I say thank you to all the photographers who gave me help when I needed it. I'm glad that you raised so much money it's gone to a worthy cause and if there is another shoot next year then please put my name down. Thanks once again
I wanted to thank you for organising this event and congratulate you on raising so much money for your good cause.
I am relatively new to all of this and have only been a club member at NNPS for a short time. I had never been to such an event and have to say I loved it. Just need to learn loads more and no doubt need more equipment.
The models were stars, putting up with the weather and all us our demands. The outfits and makeup were great. They looked great.
Looking forward to a repeat for sure.Best wishes and thanks again
Just a note to say how very much I personally enjoyed the event, a great testament to your hard work around the event management and the tremendous efforts of the models that I managed to photograph. Great to meet up with you and as I mentioned, it took me out of my comfort zone and whilst I arrived with some trepidation I can honestly say that it was a great friendly environment where I came away with some exceptional images. The models were excellent and proper troopers in the flipping cold, I take my hat off to them.
More images to be added soon
We are looking for Models, MUA's, Hairstylists and Designers to all jump onboard and help make this event a huge success. If, your company wants to get involved please get in touch.
