One Percent Collective founder on building generosity

From Nine To Noon, 10:05 am on 22 September 2014

Pat Shepherd

Pat Shepherd first came to New Zealand from his native Scotland, to work as a ski photographer in Wanaka. It was there he began getting involved in music photography through the Rippon festival.

That lead to years of photographing many of the country's biggest bands, including Shapeshifter, Little Bushman, Fly My Pretties, Trinity Roots and The Black Seeds, and founding a music magazine.

But it was his work with refugee and migrant children on the Thai/Burma border that inspired him to do more to help others – and came up with the One Percent Collective.

He talks to Kathryn Ryan about how the organisation distributes money to its chosen charities.
