Photography has been a renowned found love I have come to embrace for the past 2 years. Since then my perception of how I view objects/subjects has never been the same. I have followed a lot of mouth-watering and inspiring works, both locally and internationally which have inspired me to follow this art, with all the passion that's within me. theLordseye, is a photography vision born in Ghana by me 2 years ago but has been stagnant and slow in progression. Due to lack of funds to help make this vision be a reality or kick off on a solid foundation. I have always exacted on the opportunities of cameras of friends and loved ones given to me occasionally. It hurts me to say I do not have a camera to call my own, talk more/less of even a light modifier (softbox, shot-through umbrella, beauty dish etc...).
You can find some of my works on www.facebook.com/theLordseye andwww.500px.com/theLordseye to see how I have made use of the opportunity with other people’s cameras. I want to do more, and learn more. Not only to become professionally acclaimed and established, but to also help in the contribution of growth to this part of art, in Ghana.
However, ever since I started practicing photography it has been my source of income for daily survival in my day-to-day hustle. Sometimes I get jobs but I do not have a camera or equipments to execute them or when I do, I rent them and after deductions I am left with nothing to take home. I am in my last but-one year student in the University, and some of these proceeds help me take care of minor financial demands in university and sometimes my fees.
I am raising funds on here to help with my startup capital so that I can acquire a well built professional/semi-professional camera (which of cause will have longevity) with some basic must-have light modifiers such as beauty dish, softbox..etc. speedlites, and a couple of lens to catapult this vision on a brighter and formidable note. I want to continue to capture divine images of children, people and most importantly embark on this national project called “OPERATION THIS IS AFRICA: GHANA”. This project basically is to capture the beautiful sceneries of my beloved country Ghana to change the perception of what other westerners think of us or see my country to be. The growth of this project will also include other African countries as time goes on.
Having said all of that, I also intend to take a thousand and one (1001) free portraits for children, as it is one of my dearest passions in doing Children photography. YES! I LOVE CHILDREN. I am sure you do to.
I plead with your evergreen benevolence; nothing is too small. I believe little drops of water make a mighty ocean. And your little contribution will surely make this vision a reality.
Know that your contribution is as special as sowing a seed to a vision that will yield fruits of success. Wherever theLordseye is mentioned, it is because you allowed yourself to be used by God to bless the movement.
Just as you make this happen for me, may the Lord also make it happen for you with every little thing you have sown into this vision, restoring your finances in double fold. May the Lord also grant you your heart desires by also bringing divine helpers to you just as the Lord has made you a divine helper to me.
