Each year Iā€™m able to support a few charities and local organisations with free photographic services. If you work or volunteer for a local charity around the Oxfordshire or Berkshire area and could do with my help and free business branding photos, please nominate them by sending me an email on charlie@amethystphotos.com. 

In 2019 I worked with the horticultural therapy charity Thrive who use gardening to enhance the lives of people living with disabilities.

"We were absolutely delighted with the photos Charlie took for our charity Thrive, and overwhelmingly appreciative that this was done on a pro-bono basis. We worked with Charlie in advance of the shoot days to look at what kind of images we wanted to capture ā€“ being a gardening for health charity, this included a whole range of categories from people (client gardeners, staff and volunteers) to plants, gardens, training, events and much more.

 

Having just launched a new website, imagery was incredibly important, particularly capturing genuine interactions between people that could really demonstrate impact, connections, sense of achievement and a feeling of health and wellbeing through nature and gardening. Charlie did just that! She absolutely managed to capture some lovely moments and the photos we have are fabulous, natural, genuine and impactful ā€“ bang on brief!

 

Working with Charlie was both a breeze and a delight; great communication, sensitive to our needs as a charity and also the needs of our client gardeners (especially where photo permissions and confidentiality may be an issue) and just a wonderful person with a kind and giving heart! Thank you!"
