GoFundMe campaign to help Ray Bilcliff get a new camera
« on: October 10, 2018, 12:57:45 pm »
Let's spread the Peppermint love and help Ray Bilcliff get the new camera he needs, even if it's only so we get some great new wallpapers for Peppermint ;)

Ray has been a good friend to the Peppermint project, allowing us to use any of his brilliant work as wallpapers free of charge and with no strings attached .. so Team Peppermint are asking that you help him to keep helping us.

His GoFundMe campaign can be found by clicking this link:
https://www.gofundme.com/6jkq4-i-need-a-new-camera
(if you can't currently afford to help, please share that link as much as possible)

Thanks in advance...
Team Peppermint.

I am a photographer who does not sell his as work as I prefer to give it freely to those who like it. My website is  https://www.raybilcliff.com/  My work can be downloaded free from   https://www.pexels.com/@raybilcliff/   

I am a UK pensioner on pension Credit with very little money to spare. My current camera is a Sony a6000 and at 6 years old is developing all kinds of problems. it will not last much longer.

I have been trying to save for a long time but something always seems to come up and I have to use the money. Photography is my passion and my life. I do not know what I would do without a camera.

I know this is asking for myself but I think I will not be the only one to benefit from my photography. My photos are the wallpaper for the Linux peppermint OS and they are given freely to that open source venture. See here.  https://tinyurl.com/yd9whs8g

I would like to buy the Sony a6500 camera and it is selling for about £1300, Yes.  Photography is expensive I know.
