p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · An FM holiday gift?


UPDATE!!

Thanks to all of your interest (and a website donation from the great Rawfolio!) we've made a website where you all can donate images and we can collectively try to sell them. Hopefully we sell lots of them and do something good for people! It's open as of right now!

Here's the website if you'd like to check it out or submit: http://thegivinggallery.com

If you're interested, here's our Facebook page as well: http://facebook.com/thegivinggallery1.

Thanks again folks for making this happen! I didn't know this would be so much work, but hopefully it's worth it!

So, I had this idea in my sleep and I wanted to see what some of the community here thought. Every year we try to think of ways that we can leverage our photography to do good things for some other folks. Here's what I'm thinking...

1. We pool together as many photographers as possible and get them to 'donate' 1 image.
2. We put these images in a gallery and sell a canvas of them. 1 size, 1 price.
3. All the photographers can then promote this site as a place for their friends/clients to buy some great art.
4. We sell them for 2 weeks after Thanksgiving.
5. I order them in time for Christmas delivery and all the proceeds go to a charity.

We have a charity we've been supporting for a while so I'd probably give it to them. I'd be willing to do all the work to set up a website and put it together and place the orders. I'd probably also have 1 or 2 people view the financials with me just so everyone felt good about where the money was going.

So what do you think? You think it's something that you or other FMers would be interested in? Does it make sense?

I think its a great idea.

I'd suggest that in order to participate, all photographers should remain nameless.

One more thought. Perhaps this can spread to other forums? There is some great talent out there on FM and having a variety of photography might broaden the appeal of the project thus generating more income.

I like the idea, but I think that if we're trying to get as many orders as possible it might be better to say who took it. For example, if John Doe submits and image and shares the gallery with his friends/family, they'd probably want to be able to see which is his as it would be more meaningful to them to have one of his images. I dunno, does that make sense?

That's my goal, but with FM being my 'home' I thought this was a great place to start.

Didn't have anything in mind. Whatever people liked and wanted to share/sell. In a perfect world, I'd have time to categorize them to make it easy to search.
