Hi everyone, I hope you’re all keeping well. The last few months have been a busy time for me, with lots of smaller projects going on and a lot of time spent…. riding my bike!
As many of you may well be aware (those that follow me on twitter or facebook especially) I have decided to undertake a charity bike ride. The ride itself will take place at the end of August and will be done over 3 days. In that time, myself and my team mate will cycle from Pembroke in South Wales to Gt Yarmouth in Suffolk. A distance of 380miles. And we’ll be doing it on fixed gear bikes. That means one gear, no freewheel, no coasting. Ever. (If you can’t get your head around this, next time you’re on a bike, choose a fairly hard gear and cycle for 1 mile without stopping your pedalling. We’ll do that for 380miles!) From what we can find, it’s not been done before on fixed gear bikes so we’ll have the dubious distinction of being the first idiots to try.
We’re riding for two causes – I am support the Oxford Multiple Sclerosis Research unit at Oxford University and Chris, my team mate, is supporting the Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals Charitable Fund. If you wish to donate, please feel free by visiting my page: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/davenewton
So what has this got to do with photography? We’ll, it’s quite simple really. Asking people for sponsorship money is tough these days. Many people feel like they are just giving money away when they sponsor a charity event, so to ensure you get something out of it too, I’ll give you something in return. Instead of sponsoring me through the link above, buy one of my limited edition prints and I will donate 50% of the profits to the charity fund. That way, you get a signed, limited edition print and the charity gets a good boost of money – everyone wins!
Limited Editions are priced at £100 and are unmounted 24x16inch giclée prints on Pearl paper with a white border for you to mount and frame. Mounted and framed correctly, the colours are guaranteed for 100 years. Each edition is limited to 50 prints.
You’ll find images to select from in several places on the site:
To give you some ideas, here’s a handful of images that you could choose from……
