Before I start off listing why I need help you probably would like to know who I am and why I need this fundraiser..
I'm a young man, becoming 26 this April. I have an ok-ish job (working hard to get a promotion). I never went further than high school because of bullying and always having suffered extreme fatigue (which docters and now finally starting to link to a possible condition.) I started working the lowest spectrum of jobs and constantly try to climb a staircase higher so as the day I have kids, they can be proud when teachers ask what their father does.
The reason I made this fundraiser is because I would very much like to dive into the world of photography and follow a good course in my area. For that however I need a camera to accompany me while i develop and learn my photography skills. Hopefully turning photography into a second job one day.
For weeks I wondered which camera body I should and could buy, what I really needed vs what was too high end for a beginner. I weighed the pro's and con's of many camera systems and ended up with a Sony A7III. A very nice machine that can produce stunning pictures given the right lenses and of course camera man behind it.
Again I searched and looked through many lenses, read which lens did what and again I found two lenses with which I would cover a 90% of what I would need to learn all the ins and outs of photography.
The only problem I now encounter is that I already went 700€ above my budget that I initially set for a camera with lenses for only the body, and now I still need the lenses themselves. Something I should have taken into account but didn't expect to rise to such prices so quickly.
So here I am, humbly asking you, if you could help me reach a little closer to getting two lenses and maybe in a few years be able to take wedding pictures as a second job.
Thank you for reading my short, broke story
