Ralph Nardell is helping us help Japan

Life

I am very happy that my friend Ralph Nardell decided to join our charity project to support Japan. For some crazy reason Ralph doesn’t sell his work online (yet, hopefully!), so I get the chance to present a selection of his work here on my blog and you can buy prints by clicking the links above the images.

If you have missed the previous posts, here is the deal: Until April 14th all profits made from print sales are donated to the red cross to support the victims of the Japan earthquake and tsunami. Fotomoto, the company we sell the prints through, liked the idea and decided to also donate their 15% share. So if you love art and want to help Japan, this is perfect for you. You can buy pretty much every image on this blog as a print or card starting at $1.79.

Now, below you find a little selection of Ralph’s work. I love his photography and I have found it inspiring ever since I have seen it. Please also check out the rest of his work on facebook or flickr. Btw, Ralph has recently answered 5 questions to the flickr team. If you find an image you would like to buy, which is not shown here, contact me and I’m sure we can arrange something. :)

Fotomoto joins our charity project for Japan

Life

Last week Oli and I decided to donate all of our profits made by selling prints and other products of our photos to the red cross in order to help the victims of the Japan earthquake & tsunami. A bunch of photographers have joined us so far. Thanks to John and Mike for ordering prints!

Yesterday we got some news from fotomoto, the company we sell our pictures through. They liked our idea so much and decided to also donate their share of all of our prints until April 14th. How cool is that! Check out their blog post about it!

Now, if you want to help by buying art, here is what you should do:

Browse this blog and if you find a picture you would like to buy click on the “Buy print” link below it to order it from fotomoto. If you order from europe, the shipping expenses at fotomoto might scare you away, depending on what you want to order. If that’s the case, check out my artflakes store or just let me know which image you want to buy and we’ll find a way.

Until April 14 all profits will go to the red cross to help the victims of the Japan earthquake.

If you don’t want to buy any of my pictures, you should also check out our joining photographers. Or either way, check them out:

Just a little reminder of our photo charity project. Until March 31 I will donate all profits I make from print sales to the red cross in order to help the victims of the Japan earthquake. You can buy pretty much every image on this blog as a print or card starting at $1.79 through fotomoto (click the links below the image) or 2.90€ through my artflakes store. There is already a list of photographers joining us. Check out my previous blog post for details and please spread the word!

Help me help Japan!

Life

I’m sure all of you have heard what happened in Japan last friday and have seen the pictures of the disaster. I would like to help and donate. Unfortunately, the money I have on my bank account right now won’t do a thing for Japan. That’s why I decided that until the end of march all profit I make out of selling my art will go to the red cross in order to help the people in Japan. So, if you’re interested in buying my art and helping Japan at the same time, there are two options:

1. Here on my blog under every image you find links saying “buy print” and “buy card”, which open a little pop up window that lets you choose size and paper and stuff like that. The whole ordering process, printing, shipping, payment is carried out by fotomoto.com. I have tested them and I was really satisfied. Shipment was fast and the quality of the prints was really good. I recommend this for buyers from the US. They print in California, which makes shipping to places outside the US a little pricy.

2. The other option would be artflakes: http://www.artflakes.com/de/shop/stefanie-hoepner You won’t find all the images from my blog there, but if you like an image you don’t find in there, just let me know and I will put it up immediately.

Now of course you would like to know how much you donate in the end. Well, the profit depends on what size you are buying and what product and kind of paper you choose. Unfortunately, this won’t be visible to you when you place an order. Basically, the price you pay minus the production cost is what you donate. Depending on what you order, the production cost varies between 30-70% of the final price. If you send me an email and tell me what you ordered I’ll be happy to find out how much the profit was and get back to you to let you know how much you donated. I would also be happy to mention everybody who helped here on my blog. You just have to let me know with an email that you helped, because I won’t necessarily see the names of who placed an order. Also, if you have any questions feel free to send me an email!

mail@stefanie-hoepner.de

Until March 31 all profits will go to the red cross to help the victims of the Japan earthquake.

Feel free to browse my blog to find a picture you like and don’t worry, the watermark will not be on the prints!

Let’s keep our fingers crossed for Japan and hope that this was it!
