Photographers for Charity

I recently chatted with Rebecca Marsham of Photographers for Charity which enables photographers to offer a little of their time to attend ‘events’ and for charities to find and book them. Here she tells us more about the project. It’s a great idea and I would encourage all photographers to have a look at their website and see if you can get involved.

How do you choose your charities?

We are  open to requests from any charities across the country if they feel our free service would be of use to them.  We are always on the look-out for both charities and photographers.

What photographic tips would you give to someone attending a charity event?

Foremost: Get involved in what you’re shooting.
Don’t stand back with your zoom lens and take great photos from a distance. Get involved and talk to the people you’re capturing. You’ll gain perspective that helps you take more engaging shots and, best of all, you’ll have a great time!

What do you have planned for the future of Photographers for Charity UK?

Our plans are to get the user-friendly website up and running and a firm system in place which allows the photographers and charities to connect easily.
We’re receiving a good number of photographers who are ready and willing to help from various parts of the country, but we need more! We also need the charities to come forward and tell us what they need.
If you would like to find out more you can visit our Facebook page , Twitter Page or the Photographers for Charity website.
