Rent a Leica M9… for free

Today I came across a very interesting project. Paul Ripke, a German photographer, has been working with a Leica M9 since 2012. He has been documenting his travels with this marvelous camera (I don’t need to tell you, right?), but after he while he thought:”Why not give other the pleasure to work with this camera?” and that’s when his ‘VerLeica’ project started. It’s a funny name: in German, ‘Verleihe’ means ‘renting out’, so you get the joke. Anyway, on the website you can find some photographers that already took part in this project. The idea is simple: if you propose a project that is interesting enough, you can take the M9 package with you and get your project done with the Leica. The site is in German, but I guess Paul also speaks English. All you have to do is send your proposal to bewerbung@verleica.de

If it doesn’t work you got at least the pleasure to look at the beautiful portfolios of some brilliant photographers…

Good luck!
