I had the pleasure of speaking at the banquet dinner of the LPNH Convention in May of this year. This was excellent timing, as the convention was on Saturday and Mother’s Day was on Sunday, so I was able to see my mother and treat her to my ridiculous public speaking style (it involves silly stories about growing up in the movement).
I had a blast, and snapped a few shots of attendees. I took other pictures while in New England and I’m going to make that a second album, but here’s the shots specifically from the convention.
I waive my fee for New England LP events (I ask for travel costs, but no speaking fee) so that I can see my family for free, so if you happen to have the means and desire to donate for pics, you are welcome (but not obligated) to — I take Patreon sponsors and donations:
If you want to support my work in a longer-term format, you are welcome to join me on Patreon, where you choose a donation amount for my productivity (I offer posts featuring photo albums, videos of speeches, articles, interviews, etc). https://www.patreon.com/avens
If you’d prefer to just donate towards this project, perhaps because you like your own photos or photos of your friends, I can accept donations in multiple forms:
My Paypal is:
My Bitcoin address:
I can also take Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash or Dash. Send me a message on Facebook or comment for those addresses.
If you don’t know how much to donate, any amount is appreciated. Some people donate $20 or $30 per photo of themselves, or $5 for the effort or $100. No amount is too small (or too large…). The money goes towards funding more camera equipment, travel, and generally compensating me for the time I didn’t spend actually working a job that pays me money and instead worked on photos late into the nights. It’s a labor of love, so I’m happy to do it, but as a capitalist, I’m happy when the market rewards me for good work.
If you need something unwatermarked and/or larger for printing, please private message me either on Facebook or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll get you them (donations are VERY MUCH appreciated when you request stuff like that). Also handy to send me the FB copy of the pic you want so I know which one.
Thank you for being a model or a viewer as I continue the mission to try to make Liberty Look Good. And donations or not, please check out the album – and enjoy your pics!
Use them for your FB profile, your campaigns, your Tinder/OKCupid — whatever you need. Don’t need to ask my permission first!
For those camera-inclined who want to know what I shot with: it was a Sony a7s with a Zhongyi Speedmaster 50mm 0.95 Full Frame Manual Focus Lens.
Lastly, tag your friends, and share the album whenever you wish.
