Pay It Forward

Help create the Happiness!


Happy Snappers Adelaide is seeking your generosity with financial support or donations of any old bits of digital photographic equipment that you may not be using any more.

We are seeking donations of Canon EOS equipment!


If you have some Canon EOS digital photographic equipment laying around gathering dust, please consider putting it to good use by donating it to us here at Happy Snappers Adelaide.

It can be put to use in two different ways.

 

 

 

 

We need EF or EF-S mount lenses for the groups


Do you have spare or unused Canon gear that could be donated for the groups to use & explore digital photography with?
  • Telephoto lenses up to 300 mm
  • Macro lenses of any sort or extension tubes
  • 35, 40 or 50 mm prime lenses
 
 
 

 

Would you like to gift something to a participant?


We have passed on 3 cameras now to participants that otherwise could never afford to purchase one:
  • Do you have a working digital camera that is 8 MP or above?
  • It could be any type; Compact, Mirrorless, DSLR all are given new homes easily!
  • Please have the battery & charger for it, we can arrange for memory cards if needed.

“I could never have afforded this camera, not in my wildest dreams, I don’t feel worthy of such an amazing gift. This will help me to get out of the house more often, your photography groups are the only thing I normally do to get out of the house. Now I have a reason to go for a walk.” – Anonymous Participant

Want to help us with some fundraising?


There are two ways you can help us out financially.

 

 

 

1. Purchase a fund-raising photograph


The following images are available for purchase at a cost of $280 each. The proceeds of which will go towards helping pay for a weekend retreat for 8 participants later on in 2019 & also for entry to the Adelaide Zoo for the participants in term 4 of 2019.

These images were initially exhibited by Alex Mausolf (Happy Snappers Adelaide founder) as a part of the 2018 SALA Festival & they were nominated as a collective for the 2018 Don Dunstan Foundation Award. They are now being donated by Alex to help fund some activities for Happy Snappers Adelaide.

They are framed as pictured in simple black modern frames with white mattes.

Dimensions are:

  • 50 x 70 cm
  • 94 x 38.5 cm for the panoramic image of Victoria Square

Please email admin@happysnappers.org.au or ring 0413 549 088 with any queries.

 

2. Donate anonymously by Bank Transfer


Do you like or love the Happy Snappers initiative & want to help us out in some way but don’t have any equipment or the ability to help on the Management Committee? Donations via bank transfer are appreciated!
 
Every cent will go towards Happy Snappers Adelaide activities, including exhibitions, a weekend retreat for 8 participants, admission to the Adelaide Zoo for the participants.

2019 Groups

First term of 2019 sees some changes for the Happy Snappers groups. Critical feedback given by participants throughout 2018 has been taken on board. The destinations are now easier to traverse, more diverse & sessions are longer in duration allowing us to travel slightly further afield!​

Alex Mausolf - Mindful Photography Facilitator

Groups are being held on Mondays & Wednesdays, between 11:30am – 2:30pm, with 1 longer session from 10:30am – 2:30pm & 2 longer sessions per term from 9:15am to 2:30pm.

  • The Monday group is being held at Artworks Community Arts Centre, located at 2 Gates Road, Hackham.
  • The Wednesday group is being held at Hackham West Community Centre, located at 44 Glynville Drive, Hackham West.

Bookings for Monday group are made by contacting Alex Mausolf on 0413 549 088 or by emailing admin@happysnappers.org.au

Bookings for the Wednesday group are made at the Hackham West Community Centre, 44 Glynville Drive, Hackham West.

Payment of $40 per person for the term is necessary up front, so as to cover the transport costs in total for the term. As Alex is voluntarily holding these sessions with no financial assistance of any sort yet, the participants will need to cover the transport costs so that he is not incurring expenses for transport that he can not afford.

This equates to less than $5 per week per person, which is exceptional value for an activity of this type.

2019 Adelaide Fringe
Night Trip

Yabarra - Gathering of Light

A story for the senses, as projected light and sound guide you through an interactive cultural landscape, sharing stories of Kaurna country along Tarndaparri (the original name for the River Torrens).

This is one for the night-owls among us! The illuminations don't commence until 8:30pm, so we will probably be returning on the 10pm train, arriving back at Noarlunga at around about 10:50pm.

If there is enough interest, 2 groups can be held & friends are more than welcome to come along too. Camera usage is given priority to Happy Snapper participants, but there may be spares if they need one; please enquire to Alex about potential availability for them.
