Client Kickstarter Fundraising Success by Seamus Parfrey
In our June 2012 newsletter we featured Peter Cox and his Kickstart Fundraising initiative.
Peter raised over €30,000 within 4 weeks which was over 3.5 times the amount he had intended to raise. This was the third most successful photographic Kickstarter project ever.
He had a total of 341 subscribers who were mostly living outside Ireland. The majority of subscribers pledged between €50 and €60.
His book titled “The Irish Light – A Collection of Landscape Photographers” is now available for €29.95 from www.petercox.ie. It is a high quality, coffee table book featuring 90 images over 128 pages with the foreword by world-renowned landscape photographer Joe Cornish. It features the best of Peter’s work over 7 years featuring Irish landscapes.
The front cover image was 5 years in the making as Peter was waiting patiently for the right storm conditions.
Peter has been recently awarded a fellowship from the Irish Professional Photographers Association on the strength of his collection and he hopes to further establish his gallery in Killarney and produce another book.
