Last month I went to buy a new lens for my camera and instead of walking out with it all happy and excited to shoot - I left needing a completely new camera body. I guess that the format of the lenses has changed some since my camera came out and the one that I was after – while it would fit, wouldn’t give me the full functionality that I was after.
This will be somewhat true for all new lenses that come out. My camera is about 9-10 years old at this point so I guess I should have seen this coming but currently I just don’t have the budget to replace it myself. :(
That being said - I’m trying to sell things that I’ve made in past years with my camera in order to help fund the new one so I can keep creating and keep sharing myself with my followers here. I’m someone who cannot get enough of my camera – and while I may not be the most professional or the best photographer out there, (as I’m still very much in a learning curve) I use my camera every single week for something. I constantly try to experiment and try to push my boundaries. In the past couple years I’ve also incorporated working with other people to push myself even further both as a “model” (I never call myself that) and photographer. In general – I would simply be lost without this part of my life. It’s become such a big part of who I am.
So for the next month (maybe two) I’ll be selling the following:
BIG FAT PIN UP – Photography Book
This is a collection of my favourite photos from my years as a BBW Pin UP.
You can find it here: http://www.blurb.ca/bookstore/detail/3445594
Pin Up Photo Sets
I’m selling complete digital photo sets through email. These were originally on my website but have never been posted anywhere public in their entirety. The costs vary depending on the amount that I show in each set.
You can see the whole store here: http://fayedaniels.bigcartel.com/
I’ve picked about 15 photographs from the past year or so that I’ve taken myself to sell as prints. These will be high quality art prints much like the ones Katie West sells (because she was kind enough to give me the name of her printer) and are available in two sizes.
**If you have a picture in mind that you would like but don’t see it in the store you can email me at email@example.com to request it. I’m only selling photographs that I’ve taken myself as I don’t have copyright over any images that other photographers have taken.**

If you don’t see anything that you like or perhaps have a limited budget I will be adding a donation button to my profile until I reach the my goal. Any amount that you donate will only be used towards the replacement of my camera. It will not be used for shopping, for rent, for anything else that purchase on a day to day basis. As soon as my goal is met the donation button will be removed. I have to figure out how to do this first though haha.
I will say that if everyone donated $1 each this week, I have enough in a heartbeat!
So, if you like my photographs, if I’ve ever inspired you or made you smile, if you reblog me or if you’ve saved my pictures to your own private collection I hope that you’ll consider buying anything that I’ve made in order for me to keep making things in the future.
I would love if you helped spread the word especially if you personally backed the project - thank you so much if you even read this in it’s entirety.
