First of all, I just want to apologise for the lack of activity the past few months. I know it's incredibly annoying with the delays on Pure--Nature
, but I hope you understand that the last few months have been pretty difficult with university. I will be back on dA and working from June once exams are out of the way, and I'm already planning on doing some trips around Wales to try and get some new photography, so I haven't given up on DeviantArt just yet.
I want to use this opportunity to give you some updates, so apologies if this post turns into an essay.
Now on 500px!
I am now on 500px, although there is only a small selection of works of mine currently on there (for quality reasons).
If there are any photographers on here who use 500px, please feel free to connect with me on the site: 500px.com/jds-photo
My absence has meant that I have been unable to work much on Pure--Nature
. Don't worry, I have not abandoned the group. I will be back to work on the group in June once exams are over. I hope you understand just how difficult my current situation is with my current workload. I also want to thank Lactucaa
for helping with the group. Again, I cannot apologise enough for being unable to come online and work on the group.
Tenovus Cancer Care | Goodnight Walk 2015!
As some of you may know, I have been working with Tenovus Cancer Care for a while, but this year, I will be volunteering with photography and
walking 5 miles as part of the Tenovus Goodnight Walk. Now I would never usually post something like this up on DeviantArt, but I hope you can appreciate just how important this is to me.
Tenovus Cancer Care is a charity that is very close to my heart, having seen the work they do and having family members who have used the charity services in the past. For those of you who don't know, Tenovus Cancer Care is a welsh charity that provides cancer care and support services to those in Wales suffering from cancer. Their services range from the Mobile Support Unit, providing cancer treatment to areas in Wales where people may have difficulty accessing NHS facilities for cancer treatment, and services such as the Cancer Support Line, Sing with Us, and the ManVan (which is offered thanks to Movember's support).
Some of you may be wondering why I'm asking you this. Some of you may have already figured it out...
In order for the Goodnight Walk to be a success, I (as well as everyone else taking part) need sponsors. All of the sponsorship money raised for Tenovus at this year's Goodnight Walk will be used to fund the Cancer Support Line, so thousands of people across Wales and England can continue to recieve support from those at Tenovus. So if you can, please donate money to the link below, or help to spread awareness of the charity by sharing the link. Any help that you can offer is massively appreciatedwww.justgiving.com/jdstacey/
As well as this, Tenovus Cancer Care are also looking for volunteers to help with the event, so listen up photographers!
Tenovus are still currently looking for volunteers to help out on the night. This may include helping with photography on the night, being a marshall on the route or helping walkers to sign in.
If you live in Wales and are interested in volunteering for this event (or for any other event run by the charity), please check out the link below to find out morewww.tenovuscancercare.org.uk/g…
