Photo Website of the Week – 6 Nov 2010

This weeks photographic website is a fantastic project, ‘Help Portrait‘. Having spent 2 years in East Africa myself, I can relate to the value a photograph has for those who struggle to take their own photograph yet alone pay a professional for a portrait session. The power of a portrait in lifting the self esteem of those so frequently forgotten of by the greater majority of society is almost indescribable.

On 4 Dec 2010 is Help Portrait day for this year. We will be sure to bring you more details of how you can get involved but in the mean time you can also check out their site for South African events here. You can also follow on Twitter at
