Please help me to fulfill my dream of becoming a photographer! I am setting up this crowdfunding event so that I will be able to afford to do a Masters degree in Photography. It has long been my dream to become a professional photographer.
I am self taught in film and digital photography, but there comes a time where there are some things that you just cannot teach yourself, a time where you need direction and the ability to fully understand the intricacies of photography from a professional point of view. This is why I really want to be on this course.
A few years ago I was diagnosed with Graves Disease that affects the eyes and can potentially cause blindness. I was lucky that mine was not too bad but there is a chance it can come back in the future as once you have it you have it forever. This auto immune disease has also caused me to have a problem called an essential tremor which is quite bad shaking at times of stress or anxiety. So I have some big hurdles to face in the world of photography but I am not going to let it stop me trying to reach my goal.
I have been allowed to sit in on some lessons as the tutor believes I have the capability to do quite well. The problem is, is that I simply cannot afford to do the course. There is no real funding available to me and looking at loans that are near on normal loan rates and my current unstable job situation means I simply cannot follow my dream and its a little heart breaking.
The course is around £5000, I will be able to get half of that but the other half is the big problem.
This is hopefully where you come in..... I would really like to enroll on this years course ( that I am sitting in on) as the people who are on it with me are really nice people and I get along with them all
Any donation any size will be greatly appreciated and will go towards paying for this course Thank you for taking the time to look at this, and also a big thank you if you have donated :)
