A LOCAL photographer is calling all Noosa families to take part in a special photography project that will raise much-needed funds for the Make A Wish Foundation.
Tim Roberts wants to photograph local families enjoying the Noosa landscape as part of a coffee table book to help raise funds for the charity that recently announced an end to overseas trips for sick children due to a lack of funding.
Previously a portrait and wedding photographer in Sydney, Tim and his family moved to Noosa more than nine years ago where Tim fell in love with the local landscape.
“It’s just so beautiful here and such a wonderful place to raise a family,” he said.
For just $50, you and your family will feature in the coffee table style book plus have the option to buy the photo of your special family moment.
All proceeds raised from the photography fee will be donated directly to the Make a Wish foundation, while 5 per cent of book sales will also be donated to the charity.
Tim said the idea came from both his love of the local landscape and a desire to use his passion to help support a worthy cause.
“I am really passionate about helping children, and the Make a Wish foundation has done some great things and I want to help,” he said.
Tim hopes to raise over $3000, with the help of local families. There are only 50 places available in the book. To register your family, visit www.tprphotography.com.au/makeawish or phone Tim on 0412 960 970.
