Default Request, if i may for charity.

Hi, i am after some donkey photos to use as references for art if anyone has any.
To be clear, I am looking for cute appealing poses to paint becasue i have decided to help a friend raise money for donkeys who are badly treated and need rescuing and money to look after them too.
There are no donkeys where i live hense my request as i cannot go take my own references.
On my site i have a portrait of a donkey which is to be put onto greetings cards for charity. I gave this one free and make nothing from it.
If anyone is willing to offer me their photos to use i will need written permission to use them via PM please.
I am very aware of copyright issues.
I, of course, would credit the photographer.
So as not to take up a thread on this please PM me.
Thanks for allowing this request.
E.

She posts in the Panasonic Micro Four Thirds section under DSLR. She is a big animal lover, so I'm sure she'll be happy to help you.

Hi There Eysha - if you are still needing shots let me know as there are quite a few donkeys within walking distance of where I live. Be happy to take some shots for you. I have attached some photos of a particular donkey breed that is found in the center of France. Hope these help for the good cause - Dyane

Hi Eysha - they are called The Ile de Ré Donkey and are indigenous to the island. The island is famous for its salt and the donkeys were used for the salt harvest in the salt marshes, and to gather kelp from the beaches. Let me know if you want me to go and take some more shots of normal donkeys near me - Dyane
