G’day all, my name is Melinda but my mates call me Mel, so feel free. I live by the beach in Elwood, Victoria, Australia. I...

Opinions wanted...

Who can resist a title like that!
If you’ve been kind enough to check out my portfolio firstly, thank you.
Secondly, I have an idea I’d love to get some feedback on.
I recently travelled to Africa (Rwanda and Congo) as a volunteer photographer. To say the experience was incredible is an understatement.
I took over 3,000 RAW images all of which I am donating to a number of charities.
I have a number of contacts in a few AID charities and my hope is that my recent trip won’t be my last.
What I am considering is starting up a photo library which allows not for profits to download images for all mediums for a token price (to cover costs).
For example, perhaps a World Vision, and or CARE, Medicines Sans Fronteirs etc etc could pay a token yearly fee to cover the cost of building and running the site and that would also allow them unlimited use of all pics. I would maintain copyright so I can enter them in competitions and maybe sell a few on the side. I would allow corporates to download images if they so desired but at a full rate.
It’s just soooooo pie in the sky right now but hey, worth putting out there for opinions. The work (photographic) I will do has been and will always be voluntary so I fund myself out of my daily corporate grind.
Any thoughts oh ye smarty pants bubble people?? :-)
