HELP US TO KEEP WORKING
Since the state of alarm was decreed in mid-March in Spain and tourist services were considered (obviously) not essential, the activity of PHOTO LOGISTICS stop the field work. Firm reserves of groups of foreign photographers had already fallen previously. From that moment, they were also postponed and, in some cases, all the reservations we had scheduled were definitively cancelled. The high season went to waste.
The first reaction was: 1. Let all our guides know that we were going to have months of involuntary break. It was a very strong moral blow. 2. Let’s take advantage of the confinement in our homes to do business training (we are naturalists, not businessmen, and all the training is little). Let’s definitively fine-tune our CRM, improve internal workflows, think new products, etc. 3. We wonder how we are going to face this phase economically; we do not know how long it will last? The basics of business management says that you have to defer payments and advance income. But, there are payments that cannot be deferred: taxes, payments to providers, to land owners, giving deposits back to clients who did not want to keep their payment for future services, insurance that was due … And, advance income? It is easy to say, hard to figure it out how?
This is where the idea of offering you a € 50 advance on the next service you book comes in. In other words, € 50 is now paid to help keep us alive and we will discount them from the next hide or safari service that you book with us. It’s about paying your services in advance, not making a donation.
As a thank you we send you a t-shirt with the motto WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY IS A CONSERVATION TOOL. We have to charge the shipping on you, to avoid having to invest part of your advance in shipping, of course.
Our commitment is firm; you know that, as soon as the pandemic will be over we will go out into the field to prepare the best hides for wildlife photography. We have a team of guides for doing this job and we are deeply proud of them.
Can you help us not to stop?
