The Royal Institution of Great Britain, London, Tuesday 22nd November 2016
For anyone who braved the journey into central London on the evening of yet another train strike and made it to ‘Still Endangered 16’ we’re sure you would agree that it was a fantastic evening. Inspiring to photographers and naturalists alike with a serious and urgent message to spread.
Cameracal’s very own Anthony Sinfield was there at the invitation of Paul Goldestein.
After setting up our stand in readiness to demonstrate our services and help some photographers with the necessity of calibration Paul presentation rightly took centre stage. Once Paul had presented with considerable charm and levity he had the audience in great spirits to start rasing some serious cash.
Auctioning off prints,
And even more prints!
Then the big one. A fabulous photographic safari was auctioned, including our contribution from CameraCal including full kit calibration, pre and post safari sensor cleans and 4 hours 1-2-1 Lightroom training to help the lucky winner get the best possible images from the safari. A little snippet of this part of the auction can be viewed here.
This prize went for a whopping £8,000! In total the evening raised £15,000 all of which goes to S.A.F.E.
S.A.F.E. is a Kenyan NGO and UK charity that uses the performing arts and community programmes to educate, inspire and deliver social change. They run projects ranging from HIV, FGM and the environment.
Our thanks go to Paul for inviting us to this wonderful event and to those who braved the train strikes to attend and especially those who dug deep into their pockets to help ensure the vital work S.A.F.E. do can carry on.
