Great Lakes – Great Ships – Great Concerns

I am humbly asking for financial backers for a large-scale photography project. Please take a moment to review my project goals with the link below. Perhaps consider assisting me to bring the beauty of the Great Lakes in a unique photographic way:

Since the launch of my photography career, I decided one of my goals would be to share the best of what nature has to offer, and strongly advocate WHY it needs protection. The TALL SHIPS CHALLENGE® race series is a very popular public event. I immediately saw an opportunity to connect the excitement of the Race, with the beauty of the Lakes via another popular public interest – photography.

Educational research vessels such as the Denis Sullivan (home port Milwaukee, WI) will be leading the Race fleet. My goal is to board a ship such as this to document a leg of the Race, to journal the important scientific studies taking place on board and report on their findings. While chronicling the research, I’m certain plenty of natural beauty photo ops will present themselves, along with thrilling Race highlights.

I have been in contact with many of the Race coordinators, and have been granted permission to board the Denis Sullivan as a media journalist / photographer on for a portion of the voyage.

While I have the proper photo equipment and ability to travel, I cannot personally fund the entire voyage as required. There are many other expenses involved. All donations will go directly to travel expenses – such as to cover my passport fee, access to the Festival areas, gasoline, lodging or other required expenses such as a return bus ride home from the destination port (most likely – Duluth, Minnesota).

Additionally, I must create the final ArtPrize exhibit pieces and cover the installation. If my funding goal is not reached by June 29, 2010 – all pledges are canceled, so you will only be contributing if the project is a “GO!”
