Sorry for the multiple emails from us lately, but thought you should know about these opportunities:
The first requires some experience portraiture/sport wise:
“Dear Sheffield University PhotoSoc!
Boccia is a Paralympic Sport for athletes with severe disabilities.
As London 2012 approaches we are getting lots of requests from the media for photographs.
We are having a training camp at the EIS in Sheffield on the 11th and 12th December. We were wondering if any members of your society would like to come to the EIS and spend some time taking photos?
We would be looking to achieve the following:
- Portrait pictures of athletes and staff
- Action shots of athletes training
You will see that we have a number of photos on our Flickr page http://www.flickr.com/photos/gbboccia/collections/ but we really do need some high quality head and shoulder shots for use in the build up to London 2012, as well as some close up action photos.
Please let me know if you think this would be possible.

The second is for the ladies of PhotoSoc only:
“Hi, i was wondering if you could help me, the Islamic Circle is holding charity week, from the 1st Nov, and are having a ladies Masquerade ball on Wednesday 3rd November from 8.15-10.45pm in a local community center. Venue: (Broomhall centre) http://www.broomhallcentre.org.uk/contact.php could anyone from Photo-soc volunteer to take photos at the event, I’m thinking maybe just go round any groups of friends etc that would like a photo and stuff.
it is a ladies only event, and the volunteer would also have to be female, as it is a charity event, we wouldn’t be able to pay them either but there will be free food :)
i think a camera has been booked, so they could use that and then we could just transfer the images ourselves, this would be ideal due to some specific sensitivity issues, but if anyone interested please let me know and then i could give them more details :)
everyone’s welcome :)
…And finally a competition featuring red:
I wanted to contact your society as we’re running a great photography competition to celebrate our Red for Heart campaign – and thought you may be interested. This is the second year of the R4H competition and there are lots of great prizes to be won – including the chance to have your photograph featured in the Independent on Sunday newspaper to launch National Heart Month in February 2011.
I hoped you may be able to feature our competition on your site, post a link, or let your members know about it. More information about how they can enter and additional facts about competition can be found at www.bhf.org.uk/redphotos
Please find below some further information…
The theme for the competition is Red for Heart. The only rule is the colour red must be incorporated into your photo. You don’t necessarily have to feature hearts, but we are encouraging entrants to think about heart as a theme and what that means to you. As we are celebrating our 50th birthday in 2011 the picture could capture an element of celebration. Beyond this, the brief is open to interpretation and we encourage creativity.
Entrants must submit their photo(s) into one of the two categories – Adults (Aged 16 and over) and students. One winner and one runner up from each category will win a range of fantastic prizes including a Canon EOS 60D Digital SLR camera. Plus money can’t buy prizes including a day shadowing a Getty Images photographer for the winner of the student category.
British Heart Foundation”
So if you’re interested, please go to their website rather than emailing us.
