Yet, there are smaller scale organisation or people who did the same todo charity to help local communities. We truly thanks to all these heroes, you all had make the world sound more lovely and hopeful.

Yes. they do, they did, they always do.

How they do Charity?

Senario 1:

Organisation A approach a photographer, explain their visionary, mission and passion to help local society, they need to have photos to show to all the sponsors and helper OR to attract more people to join hand for this activity. Then they wish to have “SPONSORSHIP” from Photographer where the reason is because “We’re charity body, we do not have budget”.

For the good sake, photographer agreed to “HELP/SPONSOR” them in term of capturing the photos plus editing the photos. Then found out, during the whole event, they’re the ONLY one doing SPONSORSHIP FULLY.

– HELPER/CREW – PAID
– RESTAURANT – PAID
– VIDEOGRAPHER – PAID
– LIGHTING/EQUIPMENT – PAID
– PERFORMER/DANCER – PAID
PHOTOGRAPHER – SPONSORED

As for charity, normally photographer do not really care about these. And then this condition repeat for endless times, endless years. The Photographer Budget will never allocate in any particular year.

Senario 2:

Organisation A approach a photographer, explain their visionary, mission and passion to help local society, they need to have photos to show to all the sponsors and helper OR to attract more people to join hand for this activity. Then they wish to have “SPONSORSHIP” from Photographer where the reason is because “We’re charity body, we do not have budget”.

Then during the night, Organisation A total donated million of dollar out in the name of charity. They still do not have any Budget for Photographer.

Senario 3:

Organisation A invite Photographer to attend event (they consider photographer will brings along their hundred thousand equipment for it, and helps take all sort of photos like Official Photographer).

Event day, photographer attend the event without their gadget as they attend as “Guest Invitation“, The Organiser A tell the photographer that without your gadget, I hardly can arrange seat for you. Photographer, if you alone without gadget, you’re not in my guest list.


Sometime, a little bit of respect should be there for Photographer or Videographer. Honestly speaking, some of the art works/pictures not everyone can just produce or capture. There are plenty of “FREE Photographer“out there, why you invited the photographer of your choice? Mainly because this photographer’s photos is much more better than the rest of “Free Photographer“. But you do not respect the person at all.

Think about it, if I invite you to organise my event, and I tell you that I do not have Event Planning Budget, how you think?

  1. me

    Let me write the ugly truth here,
    1. Organizer , whether they are charity or not so charity will forever looking for sponsor for any of their project, because it requires lots of cash to run such things, the will look for that loop hole else they will be in trouble as they too need to survive the project
    2. Very few , and really few videographer who would willing to do for free – the way i look at it — it’s very few almost none good video-phonographer — so they have the bargaining position to say no.
    3. As for photographer , with this current technology , with all people suddenly become phonographer and take over the job of photographer — lets be honest , we can’t beat this culture change . So with so many people capable capture photo with their phone , why you need photographer ??? it’s because they need to not just documented their act, but get respect for their act —and only people who know how to capture this moment able to do . Do you need todo it for free??? absolutely not , Do you need to give special price ??? here is my opinion , if the amount that you charged at least 80% goes to the needy – the answer is yes , if not, what about you charge full and you donate your 80% yourself to the needy ???? it’s the same GOOD DEED.

    Does Photographer as PHILANTHROPIST …. ..philanthropist to who???
    the needy do not need your editorial shot to help them – they need your CASH!!!!
    if you sell your photo and give to them the money , yes you are the philanthropist

    i am longing back to those days , where we doing good simply because our heart told us too, without publicity involve

    Fellow photographer , just focus to elevate your God given talent – be the unique photographer that you are, make yourself be respected in market place , and from there you can make a different for others.
