a photographer's initiative
to help one another through photography.
Many of us have lent our images to various fund-raising activities to help combat this pandemic.
Some even continue to work on the front lines, documenting it as it happens. But with the further extension of the quarantine, and the uncertainty it brings, we now also have to look inward, toward our own.
Through your purchase of our prints, you help keep us safe in our homes, able to continue and contribute, and more importantly, we have all committed to contributing part of our individual sales to a communal fund, making sure everyone is benefitted by your generosity.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support.
What is Shelter Fund?
Shelter Fund is an initiative launched by Silver, which is the printing arm of Shutterspace Studios. It allows for photographers and artists to submit images for sale as prints. Shelter Fund prepares and processes the files, posts them up on IG, FB and on the Shelter Fund website, and manages the promotion, sales, production and distribution of all sold prints. After the cost of printing and shipping, up to 70% of the original selling price of the work is paid to the artist or photographer. 10-20% of the gross of the sale is contributed back to a communal fund that is shared equally by all who contributed work to the initiative.
How do you buy prints?
Shelter Fund's print sale is closed (for now) but you can still order prints by reaching out directly to the artists and photographers.
Who are the beneficiaries?
The main beneficiaries will be the artists involved. Individual artists making a sale keep the bulk of the proceeds, but the group as whole will benefit from the 10-20% contribution to the communal fund.
How long will it run?
The Shelter Fund Photo print sale ran from May 1 - 31
Do you accept payments via Bank Deposit / Money transfer?
Yes we do! You can send your payment via Bank of the Philippine Islands, Banco De Oro, Paymaya, or GCash.
Do you ship internationally?
When will the delivery of prints be?
Once an order is placed, the printing process takes about a week to make sure the prints are properly dried and checked, and another week if framing is requested.
Are prints framed?
No. Prints are sold without a frame, but we do offer framing services. Please contact us for details or visit shelterfund.ph/framing to view the available options.
