Think of a cause that you care about. What's the most recent image that comes to mind?

If there is a non-profit dedicated to that cause, then it needs that image to do a lot of work.

From inspiring change, to spreading education and documenting their efforts, non-profits need authentic visual content that illuminates what they do.

By becoming a patron of the Field Work Photo Project, you can help me create a sustainable model of visual content creation for good causes.

Ordinarily, a portion of donations and funding goes to a non-profit's marketing-&-advertising budget, which needs to be effective but not wasteful. So when they need a photographer to cover an event or build their image library, they have to decide if they're going to spend the money to hire a professional, hope that a skilled volunteer shows up, or make due on their own.

The Field Work Photo Project lifts that burden from an organization by paying for that work on a transparent per-project basis with a mix of crowd support and content creation. Media from a photo session or event is donated to the organization with important copyright privileges so that they can tell their story in their authentic voice on their platforms--allowing them to focus more time and money on their critical programs and services.

Patrons have an important role to play in helping me find organizations to serve, but they also get a returned value in listening to Field Notes, a podcast summary of each event that is made in addition to the image galleries. As the project grows, additional patron rewards and incentives will as well.

Non-profits are busy keeping overhead low, impact high, and your focus centered. They, the volunteers, and the people they serve deserve to be represented in the best light, so all my work is shot with a style and ethics learned from my time as a freelance community news photojournalist.

You will help to make it a little easier for decent people trying to do good do it well.

Thank you,
Mark Winfield Wetherbee
