Earlier last year I was proud to join The National Portrait Awards, as their appointed photographer for West Essex and East London. We are a small group of top, nationwide portrait photographers.
Each year we offer a given amount of sessions to five charities; The Lulaby Trust; Cardiac Risk in the Young; Dogs Trust; The Guide Dogs For The Blind. New for this year is Blue Cross.
Instead of asking for a session fee, all we ask is a £10 donation which goes entierly to one of the mentioned charities. Individual Children's portraits goes to Lulaby Trust, family Portaits are donated to Cardiac Risk in the Young and pet portraits to Dogs Trust, Blue Cross and Guide Dogs for the Blind.
In return you get a portait session with a top UK portrait photographer and entry into the National Portrait Awards with a top prize of £1000.
We were all delighted to recently hand over a cheque to Lulaby Trust for £7780!
