The building is air conditioned and has its own integral toilet facilities, including one for the disabled.

At present the rooms are furnished with tables and chairs, but other arrangements may be considered.

Single session bookings are available, but in order to reduce management commitment, we would give preference to longer term tenants.Typical rental costs:

I am looking for Dads who are willing to be photographed for a gorgeous book: LOVE and dads.

The book is about love, and raising funds for the Breast Cancer Foundation NZ. The whole session fee ($65) goes to the Breast Cancer Foundation NZ, who's vision is zero deaths from breast cancer in New Zealand.

Who can take part?
Dads with their child / children who are willing to donate the $65. The children can be adults...they can be mums or dads themselves!

What does the dad get?
A fun portrait session with Juliette Capaldi of Etta Images.
A place in the book, LOVE and dads.
The satisfaction of helping NZ to move towards zero deaths from breast cancer.

What else do I need to know?
The sessions are fun and don't take long.
Sessions take place in Christchurch (Central, South and East).
Prints for yourself are optional, at my usual print prices.
The children of the dad can be adults also.
We can photograph extra people at the session too if you would like.

The goal is 100 dads, to raise $6500. Already 49 dads have signed up. Now I just need another 51!

Please let me know if you have any questions at all.

Thanks, Juliette
