Welcome TO my charitable Photography project
I am on a quest to find children who absolutely love their bike to be photographed for a fine art portrait project portraying the unique bond children have with their bike. Well love bikes, borrowed bikes, hand-me-down bikes, shiny new bikes, scooters, BMX or racing bikes and little toddler trikes of any shape or size are all very welcome!
There is no greater memory than the first time you rode a bike and that first time you recognised your freedom! Exhilarating wasn’t it?
Kids and their bikes project has raised £700 so far for the Farnham Bike Ride charity
How do I sign up?
Fill out the application form at the bottom of this page.
The signing up form asks you to include a brief but inspiring few sentences about why your child loves their bike. This can be written by you or your child so we get to hear about why bike riding is so special to your child. If you have an idea for a special location for the shoot please include details as well. Children from nursery, preschool settings, infant, Junior and primary schools are able to apply. Siblings are also welcome.
How are children selected?
The project is looking to portray children with a real love for riding their bike. It aims to encompass boys and girls of all ages and backgrounds. Due to time constraints you may not get a reply straight away but do email and check in if you have been waiting longer than a month for a reply. I will be photographing children continuously throughout 2018 so reply times may vary depending
on the number of children applying in any given month.
Week day availability during school hours for your child’s photo shoot is advantageous.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
As soon as session dates become available you will receive an invitation via email with information about your childs photo shoot. You will be asked to fill out a mini questionnaire so I can find out more about your child before their photo shoot. You will also be advised about how to make your donation directly to the Farnham Bike Ride Charity.We will plan location and clothing options. The shoot, on a weekday or weekend, will last between 30 – 40 minutes. At the start of the photo shoot I will spend time putting your child at ease. We can have a chat or share a joke
together and they can show off their bike riding skills!
After the session your photographs will be presented in a private online gallery and we will chat via email or meet again to look over the images and choose your favourite to be printed as a
16 x 12″ fine art print.
Sarah ticked every box.
