A home for the things I think are worthy of sharing. Will largely be photography based.

Movember Progress

Oh damn – I totally forgot to put some Movember updates up here. All friends are likely bored of my Facebook posts anyway.

Here’s a couple more photos.

Remember – it’s all towards a good cause and if you donate over £16 to me or my team you coud win lots of shiny camera/video gear!

See the ever increasing list of prizes at Philip Blooms site – our team leader and organiser of the prizes.

And it’s not all about money of course – Prostate Cancer affects 1 men in 6!! So if there’s a history of it in your family you should get yourself checked sometime.

EDIT: Although Movember funds are open until April – you only have a few hours left to donate and enter the prize draw of my team. Minimum donation and instructions info here : http://gopb.co/movember


Movember

4th Nov - Movember

Not a photography item – but rather a personal one.

You’ve likely heard of Movember – well I’m taking part this year 🙂
Movember is a cancer charity about and against common male cancer issues i.e. Prostate and Testicular cancer. Many cancers are curable these days if caught early – however guys being guys – we’ll often not go to the doctors if we spot something. So as well as fund-raising Movember is about awareness too. Part of the registration phase for the website is to click that you’ve gone for a health check – I like that.

I’m going to be photographing my “mo” progress over the month and hope to compile a short time-lapse of my moustache. Couple of quick shots below – on the morning of the 1st after a shave and then just now – evening of the 4th.

Additionally I’ve joined the Movember team of Phill Bloom – a famous videographer and blogger. He’s managed to get a load of video and camera suppliers to donate equipment for a prize draw. There are two ways to win – creating a video about/for the cause and to donate more than $14/£20 either to someone who’s part of the team or to the team in general. So if you fancy donating to me (please) – you can actually win some pretty impressive equipment! See here for details – you need to mail him your donation receipt.

I would be tempted to create a video but I’ve not really done anything like that before and don’t know what i could cover. May yet think of something.

More updates to come.

Here’s my Movember / Mo-space page.
