Default The Traveling Chimp Photography Project

The Traveling Chimp Photography Project

Starting this month, Charlie, the little toy chimp will embark to travel the world stopping to visit individual Photochimp members along the way. Charlie will “visit” for approximately 2 weeks and then move on. During the two weeks visit Photochimp members have the opportunity to take pictures of Charlie. You can place him in a street scene, in a landscape, near a famous landmark, in a studio shoot, whatever. After the 2 weeks you will post up to a maximum of 3 pictures into the Traveling Chimp Gallery” thread, package him up and send him to the next person on the list.






The Rules:

You would be responsible for shipping and paying for the shipping to the next person and also for paying any taxes/duty you may need to pay (cross border stuff).
Charlie the Chimp will visit each member for approximately 2 weeks.
If you need him for a specific time or for a little bit longer (i.e. going on a trip) let me know and I will try to make it work. No guarantees though.
You can upload a maximum of three photos of Charlie.
One of the three photos has to be of Charlie AND you.


If you are interested in participating send me a PM with the following information:

Photochimps Username
Real Name*
Address*
Dates when you’d like Charlie (if you would like to book a specific time).

* I will not disclose your real name and address to anyone except to the person who will be sending you the chimp.

I will act as the Charlie’s travel agent and will coordinate all of the logistics.

Any questions? Let me know.

That's it? Only three pix max?

-Koa-
P.S. Don't send him to Santa (in Saipan) or the next picture you see of Charlie will be of him working in a sweat shop.

You can post as many as you want in your own gallery. For this project, we only want 3 in the official Charlie thread or Charlie gallery.

Tom, this is a great idea. Sign me and Jazzy up. We already have some ideas. Woohoo! I'll get with Todd and we'll come up with a date. I'm just bummed we couldn't get him down to the Mardi Gras this year. hahahaha

Charlie sure has enjoyed his travels around the globe--he's been to Canada, parts of the mainland US, Saipan, Hawaii, back to Canada again. Charlie's a well seasoned traveler and now he's relaxing and waiting for his next trip. We sure have enjoyed seeing the photos of his travels and hope to see many more.

We just wanted to remind folks about the Traveling Chimp Photography Project and wonder if anyone else would like to participate.

If Charlie has already visited you and you have photos you haven't posted yet, we'd love to see them! Please post them in the Charlie Gallery.

If you'd like to have Charlie come for a visit, just let me know. Please refer to Tom's original post at the beginning of this thread and pm me with all the particulars. Tom's been very busy with work and several projects so I offered to take care of Charlie and his travels. Maybe some of the things I learned while working at a travel agency many moons ago will come in handy--assuming I can remember any of it, haha!
