Alastair Herd Photography is one of the latest businesses to support the Lake District Foundation (LDF) by raising funds and awareness for this local charity.
The owner and founder, Alastair Herd, says; “Working with the Lake District Foundation is an exciting and promising collaboration. We can’t wait to sell our prints and know that we are doing our bit to help protect and preserve the Lake District, the beautiful world heritage site we call our own. With this collaboration we will also be documenting some of the many fantastic projects that are happening across the Lake District and be able to showcase these projects to the general public.”
After recently graduating from Staffordshire University with a First in BA(Hons) Photography, Alastair has moved back up to his hometown of Carlisle to pursue his passion of photography and technology. In September 2017 Alastair gained the PfCO (Permission of Commercial Operation) that is required by the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) to do any commercial Drone work, and has been capturing stunning aerial footage for a wide range of clients.
Alastair has already donated images for the LDF to use in their marketing materials, some were recently used in a photo competition on their stand at Holker Hall Winter Market, where over 100 people took part.
If you would like to see Alastair’s work for yourself, he will be at the Eden Valley Artist Network Event at Rheged on 8th December 2018, and 10% from all sales of Crystal clear plexiglas photo prints on the day will be donated to the LDF Fund. He is also donating 10% of sales of the Plexiglas prints on his website, available to buy here: www.alastairherdphotography.co.uk/shop
Finally the LDF will soon be collaborating with Alastair Herd to produce films that capture the impact of the grants made to local projects – watch this space!
Sarah Swindley, Director of the Lake District Foundation says; “We are delighted to be working with the fantastic local photographer Alastair Herd and we are grateful for his time and energy that will help us to raise our profile and reach new audiences. The funds raised by the sale of his products will be used to support projects that care for outstanding and effective projects that care for the Lake District and Cumbria”.
