Final Project - Post 11

March 12, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

I have completed a number of tasks to date. The one I have not done is the test of text as part of the image or text separately. That is really because I am not sure what text as part gf the image means as there are so many options. I will do some research on  this.  

I will also have to find a designer who should be able to help with the above. i tried the designers at Help for Heores but  they are too buoy but did say they would suggest someone to me able to help. 

I have emailed all the organising charities making sure all those who I have taken image of are clear what I am doing with their images. Even though they did all sign generic media forms when they took part with the organisers.  i am doing this because I want them to be on my side and it gives them a chance to have input. Below is a copy of the email I sent:

Good Morning,

I am a H4H benerficiary and Band of Brothers member. I am, as part of my recovery, doing an MA in Photography with Falmouth University. Could you please contact the individuals in the photographs below and pass on the following email.  If you want you can send me the individuals email addresses and I will contact them directly but I think it would be better coming from you.

This is important to me and without your and their involvement it will be difficult to pass as the exhibition is the final and most important assessment of the course.

Please contact me if you have any issues with this.

Thank you very much.

Don

Hi,

Firstly, I am a fellow beneficiary of Help for Heroes and Band of Brothers member.  I am currently doing a MA in Photography at Falmouth University and I would like to invite you to an exhibition preview of my MA Photography Final Exhibition on the evening of 23 Jul 18 (exact detail to follow nearer the time) at Tedworth House. This preview is just for those featured in the exhibition. below you can see the unedited images I want to use and you have already signed at the time of the photograph to allow their use. The exhibition is the culmination of two years study.

I would like, very much,  to use your words with your images in the exhibition so could you please write something about yourself, your injuries and your involvement with On Course Foundation. A copy of something  already produced would be fine. Could I ask that if you do want me to use your words you get something to me by the end of Apr 18.

The plan for the exhibition is to show approx 16 images and then also to have a total of  50 images which includes the 16 exhibition images in a photobook.  I  would also like to put the images on to a dedicated website to get them displayed for the general public.

After the exhibition the framed images and any profits from the sale of the photobook will be given to H4H .

Thank you very much

Don

I have also written a couple of paragraphs about myself will be used both at the exhibition and at the start of my Critical Review of my Practice.  This is also included below:

I served for 37 years in the British Army as an electronics engineer and completed my service in Apr 15.  I was them employed as a consultant to the Ministry of Defence for two years and then in Mar 17 I decided I was going to combine my loves of sport and photography and become a self-employed photographer.

 

In Jul 09 just after returning from Afghanistan I had a large stroke and spent 7 months in hospital. Then in Dec 13 I was the victim of a serious road traffic accident in which I broke four bones in my back, two bones in my neck and eleven ribs. So as a direct beneficiary of the Help for Heroes charity I have had almost uninhibited access for my chosen project.
