I'm pleased to say that thanks to people buying photos from this site, £1,500 has now been donated to charity - £300 each to Hospice Isle of Man, the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, the Manx Wildlife Trust, Victim Support Isle of Man & Alzheimer’s Society (Isle of Man) Branch.
This photo website launched in June 2011. My main objective remains to share my photographic hobby with as many people as possible. The option to buy copies of the photos and contribute a small amount to charity is secondary but it also automates things and I no longer have to email them as in the past. All profits from the sale of downloads, prints and photo gifts are donated to charity - only commissions (to Zenfolio who host the site), printing costs etc will not reach a charity. I pay all the costs of operating the site. If you live in the Isle of Man and order photos from Photobox (the printing agent) the postage is cheaper if you select Isle of Man as a county of the UK, ie don't set Isle of Man as a country (I have no control over this).
Thanks to Mike Lambden, Neil Wilson and more recently Karen Kneale whose photos have been sold in addition to my own.
The vast majority of the photos are from Manx athletic events over the past 10 years (with a few more still to be added) but I also enjoy taking photos of Isle of Man events and views so they are also included. Sit back and browse some of the photos.
In the unlikely event that anyone wants to use my photos for commercial purposes please let me know. I will also freely assist all media in the Isle of Man to promote the sport.
