Nominate your Covid 19 Hero for free photoshoots and workshops.
I'm so excited to be a part of this nationwide initiative by The Guild of Photographers. Joining with my friends and colleagues and some of the most talented photographers in the industry, in offering pledges of photoshoots, workshops and so much more.
We're saying a thank you to our wonderful NHS, all of our Key Workers to our Vets and to those Local Heroes who have worked unselfishly to keep our communities together throughout these last few months.
Our initiative is simple, we'd like to give something back, something we're good at, something that will last you a lifetime, something that speaks a thousand words. Some photographic memories.
Photographers, the length and breadth of the UK have offered pledges. To see what others are offering, here's the link to The Guild of Photographers "Portraits of Togetherness"
The guiding principle is that there are heroes, sometimes unsung, who have helped in hospitals, in communities, in delivering food, in making those vital phone calls, in walking dogs, in a million ways, big and small. Sometimes at great personal cost, always, always with kindness and care for others above all. It's these people we wish to celebrate.
This is how it works
If there's anyone you know, in your community, anyone who has been your personal hero who you'd like to nominate for a photoshoot or one of my workshops, please fill in the "Nominate Your Hero" form below. Twenty finalists in each category will be chosen by me, based upon the numbers of people who nominate the same person and based upon your descriptions of your heroes. These people will form the finalists and their names will be placed into a draw to take place on the 1st September 2020. The draw will be done by an independent person, not connected with Cleo Bolt Photography and will be verified by them. The successful applicants will be notified shortly after the 1st September by e-mail.
Who Am I?
My name is Sharon Bolt, I am a Dogs/Pets photographer and fully Qualified accredited with The Guild of Photographers. I own Cleo Bolt Photography. To see more of my images and to stroll around my web page,
This is my offer, it's in two parts and as you'd expect from me, it's pet orientated.
Offer 1. Five individual photoshoots of your heroes with their pet family member: it might be their dogs, their horses, their cats, their chickens or their guinea pigs.
These photoshoots will take place within a 25 mile radius of Hampshire/Berkshire border.
Each photoshoot will include five hi resolution, and five social media resolution digital downloads.
Offer 2. I have joined with award winning photographer, Louise Farrell at Tell Tails Photography to offer two workshops for five people each, for any of your heroes who are budding photographers. Or maybe just heroes who wish to learn more about how to photograph their pets.
The workshops will take place in the Autumn at an outdoor location within 25 miles of the North Hampshire/Berkshire border.
Louise and I will give your hero inside secrets and we'll supply the expertise to help your heroes create stunning images, we'll also provide the dogs and we'll provide the laughter.
