Hi everyone, following some discussions from the Aceh Photo Relief thread, here's something that we may be able to do to contribute as a photography community. This is TOTALLY within our means.
as mentioned by ortega, we can do photoshoots for people (locals, tourists, shoppers etc.) in places like Orchard Road or some other tourist attractions (e.g. Singapore River)Originally Posted by ortega
this is in the initial stage and there are no concrete plans as yet. but we are consolidating a list of what we have that can be used to do this:
Equipment list for supporters:
1. eikin (mine take only up to 4mp, maybe for smaller prints)
2. snowspeeder (6 - 8 mp, but 4 mp is more than enough for prints)
1. eikin (but monitor not calibrated)
portable printer & photo-papers (maybe can look for sponsors? especially the photo-papers)
What other things/people we (may) need (to do):
1. A group of capable coordinators experienced in this type of charity drive
2. Get approval from relevant authorities to carry out this project once plans are drawn out
note, i am not the organiser (no intention as well as i have no experience in this and will not be able to handle such a project) i am only posting this to raise awareness for such opportunities to help, there are many things which i do not know that many of you will know with regards to such projects, so please step forward and contribute ideas/suggestions and your effort.
we need inputs from the entire community here if we are to realise this donation drive because right now everything is just a dream, but this dream is not impossible IMHO
p.s. for those who wonders if this will take too long to organise and not raise the money in time, we have to take note that very often we forget about the disaster victims after the media stop reporting them. this is a major disaster that will take many many years for the victims to recover, help will never be too late if we start now!
