I am proud and delighted to announce that my project has been awarded some funding through the UK Film Photography Community Fund from Analogue Wonderland.
Analogue Wonderland’s checkout has an option to contribute a discretionary tip to ‘The Future of Film Photography'. Any money that people choose to put into this box is kept separate and forms the 'Film Photography Community Fund'
Twice a year, the pot is allocated to deserving projects that will provide long-term benefits to the UK film photography community.
This funding has helped me purchase 10 Canon EF mount lenses to pair up with already purchased EOS film bodies, and get them ready for donation to a school or community group in the North East of England.
If you know of a school or group in the North East of England that would benefit from a donation of photography equipment, get in touch with me via the 'Contact' page.

Prudhoe Community High School
My part of Northumberland has three high schools. I've already helped two of them, so I contacted the third to see what, if anything, I could do for them. Their Lead Practitioner for Design Technology & Media got in touch with slightly different needs. A challenge - but I had it covered...
Creative Youth Opportunities CIC
My largest donation to date goes to the Creative Youth Opportunities CIC, which serves children and young people in East Durham, and Benwell, in Gateshead.
Chilli Studios, Newcastle
I was delighted to be able to donate 10 film cameras and other darkroom equipment to the fabulous Chilli Studios, Newcastle upon Tyne.
Queen Elizabeth High School Hexham
The first of my donations. The Queen Elizabeth High School in Hexham, Northumberland has a thriving photography A-Level course. At the time of donating, they had 38 students across the two A-level year groups.
Journey Enterprise, Acomb
My third donation came out of the power of social media. I received a message through the Facebook page I created about the project. Not from a school, but from a charity that supports people with learning disabilities in the north east. Their vision is that everyone should have happy, inclusive and fulfilling lives - and that includes photography.
Haydon Bridge High School
The second of my donations was to the Haydon Bridge High School in Haydon Bridge, Northumberland. Their needs were a little different to my first donation at the Queen Elizabeth High in Hexham, but I knew I could help.
Ouseburn Farm
My latest donation goes to Ouseburn Farm's photography group. This will help expand the group & give more opportunities for their placements to learn photography.
