    Hi!

    I'm currently launching a charity website where anyone can buy and
    sell digital photography. The profit from each sale is split between
    the photographer and one of three charities: Oxfam, Save the Children
    and Care International (the customer decides which the money should go to).

    In order to make the site a success, we need literally thousands of photos, so I need your help! With your talent, we could really make a difference.

    Here's the URL:
    http://www.bigwhitebox.com

    I hope you can help
    Dave

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Sounds like a good thing to be a part of. Is there any type of photography that you want in perticular? (landscapes, nature, journalizm, art, etc.)

    Hi, thanks for replying.

    It's very early days for the project so at this stage any good quality work is appreciated. Bear in mind if you would like to sell a photo showing a person's face they need to agree to a model release so we know they have given their permission - apart from that anything is welcome :)

    Take care
    Dave

    Yaad, you're photos are brilliant, I couldnt ask for any more! I think the site is starting to gather speed now people like you have really got the ball rolling. There are 59 photographers so far, including some pros who have donated their images! If anyone can help spread the word that would be amazing

    Take care and thanks again
    Dave

    Is there an alternate upload manager?

    Hi Richard!

    Glad you like the site :D I'm afraid the current upload manager is all there is for the time being, but the site is still only in BETA so if you have any suggestions please let me know and I will add them to the wish list!

    All the best
    Dave

    It would be cool to upload the pics and coments in batches of 10, in that way, I (the photographer) can set up a batch upload and walk off. at the moment it seems quite time consuming

    Meanwhile - I have about 50 for you, to get the ball rolling

    Regards
