Where exactly in NY, do you mean New York City or somewhere in New York State?

Hi guys!

My name is Camila and I work at a Brazilian NGO of photography called ImageMagica founded by the photographer André François. Since 1995, we develop social projects in schools and hospitals using photography as a tool of transformation. Besides that, we also produce photo documentaries around the world that discuss important issues like access to health, quality of life, education, among others. We have partnerships from UN (United Nations), WHO (World Health Organization), Doctors Without Borders (MSF), among other organizations.


Andre is a photographer for over 30 years and has done several projects with photography here in Brazil and worldwide. We travel a lot to get those projects done. If you have sometime, take a look at his website: https://www.


We are starting a new project with astrophotography and people in the world. The idea is - apart of a nice portrait - to photograph (in mono) the deep sky above this person. This kind of photography is something completely new to us

Andre will be in New York next week and he would need some help to set up the equipment we've bought: Mach1GTO and a telescope Stellarvue 80mm, among other accessories. Do you know anyone available for a couple of hours between Sep, 21st-23rd. 

It would really help us a lot! :)

Many thanks,
