Photo Projects - Responsible Photography
Responsible Photography Photo Projects
Responsible Photography encourages collaborative and participative photography through facilitating photo study, photo activities and photo projects, in addition to raising awareness of photographers rights and campaigns that respect the rights of children.
Gail and her partners are collecting Digital Cameras for photo projects and photography activities, and also for some of the communities we collaborate with to use. Digital cameras that are 6 megapixels or above, in good working condition, together with leads, batteries and a memory card would be ideal. Cameras
that are suitable for people with visual impairments are
especially welcome. Arts and craft materials are also very useful,
and, a BIG request - can anyone help by donating a laptop? Please get
in touch with Gail if you can help.
The Founding Principles of Responsible Photography are all about involving people and communities. Responsible Photography partners, guides and helpers are all encouraged to get involved with Responsible Photography and participate as much as possible. In fact, a couple of the 'team' are really keen and you'll see some of their photos on this website - not only are they developing a very good eye, but they are also very good at catching you unawares! Inevitably people move on and this has already happened with some of our helpers at Responsible Photography, who certainly enjoyed the opportunity to take their own photographs. The decision was taken not to ask them to return cameras they had been using, but to continue enjoying photography in their new job/life.
Responsible Photography Photo Projects are just as important. Important because local people - young and old - who may not otherwise have the opportunity, can get their hands on a camera and take their own photographs. For Gail, the basis of the photo projects is that they are not only fun, but that they give people the chance to photograph where they live through their own eyes. Setting up the photo projects, the logistics and planning, collecting everything needed, plus trying to get support, funding and sponsorship is not straightforward. There are cultural differences, organisational issues, different opinions and lots of other challenges to overcome. For more information about the projects please visit Responsible Photography.org. To get in touch with Gail, offer help or sponsorship please email.
