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 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.

* John is my legal or birth name, but my preference is to use Alex, one day I will blow the cash on changing it legally, so the bank account marries up to my name of preference.

Moving Pictures

Videos of some of the places that the various Happy Snappers Adelaide participants have visited.

Still Pictures

Some image galleries from the Happy Snappers Adelaide participants at the various normal daytime sessions & some of the special after dark trips we have held outside of normal session times also.

Arranged in terms, going back from most recent to the first groups at the beginning of 2018.

Not all participants have contributed images to these galleries, with some people not wanting to be identified as participants, some others had concerns of their images being stolen or potentially printed & sadly others were of the belief that they didn’t have images of a standard worthy to being shared, As this is an initiative that is based on wellness, I will never pressure anyone to share their imagery, if they don’t want to.

2019 Groups

Groups for term 2 of 2019 are being held on Mondays & Tuesdays, between 9:30 am – 12:30 pm, with 2 longer sessions per term from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm. There will be 9 sessions for both groups in term 2 of 2019.


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.

If you can not afford to pay upfront for the term, please speak with Alex about arranging a payment plan.


  • The Monday group is being held at Artworks Community Arts Centre, located at 2 Gates Road, Hackham.
  • The Tuesday group is being held at Hackham West Community Centre, located at 44 Glynville Drive, Hackham West & créche facilities are available by enquiry to the centre on 8384 1065.
