Travel and photography are the perfect combination

I’ve always had a love of still and video photography. Living in Africa for 7 years and then working for an international animal charity for a further 7 years, has given me many opportunities for capturing unique moments and memories.

Supporting charities around the world

In 2002 James signed up as a volunteer for a wildlife conservation project in Zambia and this was the catalyst for a career to help save animals and the environment. His work in Zambia saw him establish the only elephant orphanage in the country and while working as the MD of the charity Worldwide Veterinary service (WVS) in the UK, he helped promote animal welfare across the globe, through training centres and international projects.

James has worked with many charities and seen how nearly all of them would benefit from expertise in certain areas. Some may need advice and training on animal welfare topics or looking after animals in their care, but many need mentoring on the business side of running a charity. How to run a successful marketing campaign, how to write a grant proposal that will stand out from the others, financial management and of course governance of the charity. By improving these areas, a charity can be more effective and increase their charity's output.

In 2017, James and 5 other like minded, passionate individuals established a new charity called 'Wildlife and Welfare'. It's aim is to support existing charities all over the world by providing resources and partnerships to help improve their charitable aims. 

One Time Creative was delighted to design a logo and website for the charity free of charge and provide on-going design and marketing expertise. Visit the charity website to find out how you can get involved, or to view the latest projects.
