It is important to see some of my efforts go back to the community through contributions to local charities and not-for-profit organizations. To this end, I regularly volunteer time and services to various programs including Fanshawe College’s Fashion Design Program, Artfusion, The Arts Project and others.
When possible and suitable, pieces from my various collections are donated to fund-raising auctions, and 20% of profits from the sale of these collections is being pooled and will be donated to support Art Specific not-for-profit organizations in and around London.
If you have a local charity or non-profit society that require a skilled Photographer, please contact me with details of your event and organization.
Giving back to help others…
Working for self alone is without true passion… It is my goal to work for others in need, as well as in support of the Arts in my Community. njw
