So how many of us has made a New Year Resolution I wonder?
I must admit I have and I’m hoping it’s an easy one to keep as my resolution is to get back into the swing of blogging which I have rather neglected of late.
So we’re kicking off with some news of our fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support.
We’re starting the year by donating all the profits from sales of this print to the charity. You can buy it in sizes ranging from 6″ x 4″ up to A3 and all you have to do is visit our website http://www.imjphotoart.co.uk (or alternatively just click on the picture!) and you won;t be able to miss it.
It’s a HDR picture taken earlier in the year of Cardiff Bay and would look great on any wall or as a smaller print on your sideboard or shelf.
With prices starting at just £4 why don’t you treat yourself and help this fantastic charity while you do it.
Here we are with the second post of the day and the 3rd in the run of my exhibition pictures.
This is a HDR picture of the entrance to the Bishop’s Palace in Peterborough. Unfortunately it wasn’t a particularly sunny day when I did this picture but as we pretty devoid of sunny days at the moment I thought it best not to wait for one as it could be a long wait!
If you want to see the prints that are on display just click on the picture and you’ll be taken the exhibitions page on my website. Please consider purchasing one of my prints as we are donating 50% of the profits to Macmillan Cancer Support.
Those of you who follow my blog will probably know by now that we i.e. IMJ Photo-Art have an exhibition at Peterborough Museum running for the new few months.
I know it will be practically impossible for most of you to get there to see it so I thought that over the course of the next few weeks I would try and post one picture a day of a print that is in the exhibition!
This is the first of those pictures which was taken by my sister in Lille, France.
Having the picture in black and white really gives it atmosphere and somehow makes it a really interesting picture.
If you click on the picture you will be taken to the exhibition page on our website and, as you will see, we are raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support with 50% of our profits being donated to them.
My blog post today is called Across the Bay as that is exactly what it is! This is another one that I’ve dug out of the archives and it is a view from Mermaid Quay across Cardiff Bay in Wales.
Cardiff is one of my favourite places to spend time and I always look forward to going there.
This picture was taken a couple of years ago as the view is pre-Dr Who Experience which you would now see on the left of the picture.
This May Bank Holiday I’m doing a sponsored walk around the perimeter of the bay which equates to approx 13km. I’m doing it in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and if any of you would like to help me raise money you can click on the picture which will direct you to my JustGiving Page
When a cause is very close to your heart there is never any doubt about whether you should help. That’s how I am with Macmillan Cancer Support. I, like many others have lost both family and friends to cancer and in my previous job at a company called Coloplast I used to speak to cancer sufferers (and also cancer survivors!) on a daily basis so I am only too aware of how this terrible illness can affect and change someone’s life.
Although more research needs to be done to try and find a cure for cancer, it is vital that those who have the disease and also their families receive the support they need to get them through this terrible ordeal as I am only too aware.
When I decided to branch out and run my own photography business it seemed the ideal opportunity to try and help Macmillan Cancer Support by donating a percentage of any profit that I make from the sale of my work to them. However I wanted to take this just a small step further and decided that I would donate 100% of any profit I made from the sale of my favourite piece of work to them and this is the piece that I chose:
I personally feel it is one of my most stunning images and it also ties in nicely to the 150th anniversary of the London Underground.
If you have taken the time to read this then I would ask you to please take a look at my website as the information on how you can buy this print is there – you can purchase one for as little as £4.00 and your purchase will help us towards our fundraising goal. However, we do not expect everyone to purchase a print from us, so if you visit the Macmillan page on the website you will see how you can donate without having to purchase a thing.
The website address is http://www.imjphotoart.co.uk – please take a look, help us support those who need it.
Thanks for reading.
Off to the seaside today and a HDR image of Brighton Pavillion. This is one from the back catalogue that was taken last year and has just made it onto our website.
Please visit http://www.imjphotoart.co.uk where you can help us raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support too.
A nice abstract picture now. These are rocks that are on Aberystwyth Beach in Wales but given a HDR treatment.
I think you will agree that it has really given it an amazing twist which I hope you will enjoy.
For more of my work please visit http://www.imjphotoart.co.uk where we are donating a percentage of the profits from each of our sales to Macmillan Cancer Support.
