Free Pro Bono Photographic Services
Free Photographic Services For Non-Profit Organisations
Free Services to Schools
Our country has much to celebrate-that is good.
I draw great personal pleasure from assisting NGOs/charities and disadvantaged schools and am happy to do this free of charge when my schedule permits.
"Giving-back" to the community is a central principle of my photographic work.
I believe very strongly that the future of our nation will to a significant extent depend on the quality of education received by the poorest of our communities.
From time-to-time and dependent on my availability, I am willing to provide photographic services free of all charges (or at a reduced rate to cover my direct costs) to charities and schools in disadvantaged communities and to any non-profit organisation that I believe deserves support.
This is always a very subjective call, but I hope that I may be able to assist in a small way, by photographing a fleeting moment of happiness and celebration in peoples' lives - and returning those images to them and their community.
The type of events that I may cover are:
- sporting events
- prize giving events
- award ceremonies
- matric graduations
- matric dances
- class photos
- special class activities
- celebration of Top Teachers
- any other important event in the lives of the people concerned
Free Services to Charities and other NGOsWhile I have focused the first part of this page on disadvantaged schools, very much the same philosophy and approach will apply to any other deserving cause such as charities and a variety of NGOs.
What will the School or Charity Receive?
On completion of the assignment the institution concerned will receive a majority of the images photographed on CD/DVD in high resolution format as well as all images in JPegs format (including "web-ready" format) with full and unrestricted license rights to use the images in any way they may choose.
(In line with normal international practice, the photographer retains ownership of the images.)
Criteria for Pro Bono Services
This offer is available to certain schools and other education institutions in disadvantaged areas and to other non-governmental and non-profit organisations.
Contact me if you think that I might be able to assist your organisation, charity or school through the use of photography.
Ultimately, I must decide if I am able to provide my services free of charge or at a reduced rate to organisations that I believe are worthy of support and maybe - (that also creep into my heart and inspire me).
Please note that this service offering is at the sole discretion of Seán McSweeney Photography and is dependent on my availability and schedule
