Almost 10 years ago Malcolm and Maya started Kidshotz with three aims.  Raise money for measles vaccines, provide an income for disabled people in the poorer parts of the world and in Australia work with the mums of small kids so they could earn an income while the kids were at School.  They built the business to a peak in 2008 where over twenty people were involved. Technology, the GFC and an influx of new part time photographers, often working for below the cost of production caused the business to slowly change. In 2013 Malcolm & Maya decided to downsize and continue to work with their highly talented designer based in the Philippines.  With over 100 thousand kids given a shot in the arm…….it was time to move onto other causes.  Malcolm and Maya added to the range of work they do the “Boxshotz Style” designed as a fundraiser for Preschools, Schools and other groups.  Then they got demands from mums who with their friends could organise a day to raise funds for other worthy causes. Kidshotz continues to change and evolve today.
