The Story


I’m a professional photographer who finally has the chance to get my business up and running. But to do it, I need new cameras, equipment, and some money for additional expenses -- and for all that, I need your support. 

The Concept

I’ve had a great time doing photography as a part-time career using just the basic equipment I have, but ever since college, it’s been my dream for photography to be my one and only passion.

While it can be tough to make a living doing something creative like photography, I finally have the chance to do just that -- I just finished up my classes, and I have enough savings to get by for the amount of time it will take to get the business into a sustainable place. I’ve decided to take this time to give my dream a real shot.

My Request

Unfortunately, if I want to make it as a professional, the equipment I have right now isn’t going to cut it. I need new cameras, lighting equipment, and enough money to travel to places where new potential clients live.

To get the funding I need, I’m asking the help of my friends, family, and community. Of course, I’m not asking you for a donation; I’m asking for a loan.

With your help, I’m looking to buy around $12,000 worth of new cameras and related equipment, including (among other things) professional lighting.

In addition to that, I’m also projecting that I’ll need around $8,000 for travel and related expenses in order to get to where my new clients are. I’ve already been booked for a few destination weddings that I stand to make good money from, but which require some upfront costs on my end.

I really think this is a good opportunity for me to kickstart my professional photography career. I already have a small (but devoted) client base that have provided enough work for me to prove myself, and with your help, I’ll be able to grow that network into something that will allow for a true career.
