I welcome you to a charity group shoot on Saturday 20th August 2011 to raise money for STOP(UK). The charity work by identifying and working to save people who have been trafficked into miserable, extremely brutal lives of prostitution, drugs and/or harsh manual labour. They are thrilled we are looking to help them and have sent lots of media material, team t-shirts and they're going to feature the photos on their website/blog.
The day will cost £15 to photographers which will go directly to the charity (with JustGiving acting as the middle-man so you know your money is secure). You can donate money afterwards on the day if you'd like to give more and models can also donate to the raffle, a 'best picture' competition and more. Models will be working TFCD.
The shoot is at Studio5000 which is right next to Pallion Metro station in Sunderland.
Who's interested? Please let me know. We'll have several high quality, experienced models including myself, Bex Taylor, Stephanie Power and Lauren Bradshaw (more to be confirmed) and refreshments will be provided.
If you would like to be super kind and cannot attend but want to donate, you can make an online donation here. I am eternally grateful for contributions;
That's great David. Would be grand to see you there.
John we should be shooting up until 6pm at least. If you wanted to come when everyone's packing up I'll still shoot with you and there are lots of other models coming.
Keep the acceptances coming photographers. We have some top model talent on board; there's Lisa-Ann Chrystal, Bex Taylor, Victoria Adams, Kirstin Dillon, Victoria Price, myself, Rachael Carey, Laura Wilson, Lauren Bradshaw, hopefully Stephanie Power and Nina Carmel Harrison and a few more 'possibles'.
We have been sent lots of material to give out, I have team t-shirts and someone will be photographing 'behind the scenes' shots. We've a make-up artist coming around 3pm to do professional touch-ups and wacky styles on the models. We've had prizes donated for the raffle. The charity are doing a feature about us on their website in the next few days, too. Please tell others who may be interested in this event x
