Positive Focus is a not for profit community group and its activity is overseen by a committee of five; myself and four other independent individuals who I know and trust. Not for profit means exactly that, any funding, donations, gifts etc will be directly fed back into making the group work.
We need to cover the costs of camera and studio equipment, laptops, processing software, field trips, venue hire and much more besides that; all of this needs to be insured for example.
I get to share my passion for photography with people who may be looking for a distraction or a new focus on life. People who have given a lot in terms of how they have protected this country, saved lives and experienced some horrendous things in the course of their work.
They may not become professional photographers or even carry on with photography as a hobby, but if I can help them along the way to prove to themselves that they can achieve, they can create and that they are capable of doing new things, then that is enough for me.
You can help us with this, you can actually make a difference very easily. No, I'm not asking you for money, although there are going be a variety of funding initiatives coming up next year, but what I am asking you to do is to help us create an awareness of what we can do here at Positive Focus.
What I would ask you to do is this:
