Good day to all; my name is Dawn Welch.  I have been taking pictures for over 30 years, ever since my first camera at 14.  After encouragement from many friends, I am wanting to start my own photography business - and am in need of a good camera.

The camera I currently have is a Canon PowerShot SD-850 IS I received as a gift in 2008.  Unfortunately it no longer works the way I most need it to after 3 repairs for focusing issues.  While I understand that it's the person who makes pictures great (I have one B&W example above), I do feel the need to graduate to a better camera with improved resolutions.

I am looking for a Canon model in the neighborhood of $500-700 range with both HD video and photo capabilities, with the extra money for startup expenses such as materials to make a few items to get interest going.  I like taking photos of many different things, especially B&Ws, unusual scenery views, and concerts, such as the following examples (all done with my current camera; the first is a picture of my husband and myself):

I have been told by some friends that the above Space Needle picture would make a great wall photo.  I have also received good reviews on other photos in my collection...so why not share them somehow?

I keep getting told, "You never know unless you try."

I want to finally be self-sufficient and I believe I can do this!

I'm also just a few classes away from earning a Bachelor's degree in Communications, and I am excited to make a better life for myself - all I need is a chance. I would love nothing more than to make my own way and make people happy doing it.

IMPORTANT: If I am successful in this venture, I will also provide a minimum of a 10% product/task discount to all who donate to my cause.  Special perks may be added as success continues.  I believe in this idea!

Any amount will help, and ALL money is guaranteed to fund my startup attempt.  Thank you so very much.
