My name is Stan Fikel and I am part owner of Photo Ballistic Systems. Our company has designed high-speed photography trigger systems that have been used for photographs in advertising and in aerospace applications. Along with my two degrees in electronics I have been a commercial photographer for 30 years.
One of the goals of the company is to get high-speed photographic triggers into the hands of high school students to give them the opportunity to learn the science and art of high-speed photography. By funding this project, the company would provide high-speed triggers for use in the classroom. Phase 1 of the project is the provision of Sound Triggers and Phase 2 would then provide and Optical high-speed triggers.
The company’s first goal is to raise $25,000.00 as seed money to fund the project. For every $100.00 raised, the company will provide a photographic sound trigger to a high school. For each contribution of $5 or more to the project, the company will send you a digital image file that has been taken with our equipment to the contributor (I will need your email address to send the images). This image can be used as a screen saver on your computer or used on your phone. We'll even send the contrubutor a high speed photographic trigger (and one to the schools) for a contrution of $130 and over.
High-speed photography enables students to learn the science and art of photography in an enjoyable and exciting way. Any monetary donation will be greatly appreciated, but if you are unable to contribute at this time, please forward this message to someone who might.
Thank you in advance for your donation. Please include your email address in all correspondence and to send the image files to.
