When I first heard about the floods in Brisbane, Australia, my thoughts and concern immediately went toward my dear friend Marcus Bell. Marcus is one of the worlds best photographers, and while his home and studio were spared, many of his friends and family have been devastated by the recent flooding- many lost everything they own-Read below to find out how we can help. Incidentally, I use some of Marcus's workflow solutions in my studio. His products are fantastic, and money will go to a great cause.
Marcus Bell Queensland Flood Appeal
Photographic Fine Art Print Sale
You may have seen the news footage of the significant flooding that occurred throughout Queensland Australia during late December 2010 and January 2011. Many lost their lives, many more lost their homes. Three quarters of the state was declared a disaster zone. This is an area roughly the size of Texas.
A resident of Brisbane Queensland, award-winning photographer Marcus Bell is raising money to help flood victims, by placing ten of his own classic images up for sale. All proceeds from each sale will be going to the Queensland Governments Flood disaster relief fund. Each signed “Artist Proof” print is an original award winning photographic work. Each unframed 24 inch print for sale for $950 (plus postage) and is printed to the highest quality 300GSM Archival cotton paper. Many of these prints represents a saving of between 50 to 75% off the normal edition print price.
In addition 20% of ALL of Marcus Bell Photographer Resources Products sold during January and February will also be donated to the fund. This also includes the 5 new Instant Effect Presets products recently released after a year in development.
