Note from Edwin Ochoa, Microgrant Recipient 9

Last week I had the pleasure of delivering the recently funded Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 lens to Edwin Ochoa, Microgrant Photographer 9. Edwin sent shortly afterwards a letter to the donors of his grant that I thought I would share an edited version of the letter publicly because it states well why this site exists.

Donations to the current Microgrant Photographer, Alba Bran, can be made here.


First of all, the lens is great! I want to express my deepest gratitude for your generous support that goes beyond economic support; it is also believing in the possibility that someone that you do not know connects with you in some way.

This microgrant means that I can continue growing in my career as a photographer and artist. I am proud to have been chosen and it inspires me to keep working every day with lots of energy and passion to be worthy of the support you have given me. I send a heartfelt thanks and a warm hug.

Thank you very much,
Edwin Ochoa



Primero que todo el lente esta genial!! Quiero expresarles mi más profunda gratitud por su generoso apoyo que va mas allá de lo económico, es creer en la posibilidad de que alguien que no conoces se conecta con tigo de alguna forma.

Esta beca significa seguir creciendo en mi carrera como fotógrafo y artista. Me siento orgulloso de haber sido escogido y me inspira a seguir trabajando cada día con mucha energía y pasión para ser digno del apoyo que me han dado. Les envió un sincero agradecimiento y un abrazo caluroso.

Muchísimas gracias.
