Help Portrait 2012 to bring Jamestown alive through photography, music and more, December 23



Portrait 2012 will be celebrated in Ghana on December 23.  Help-Portrait is a community of photographers coming together across the world to use their photography skills to give back to their local community. Help Portrait Ghana consists of a group of renowned photographers ‘volunteers and sponsors together helping put smiles on the faces of deprived children and communities across the country. What Help Portrait does is we visit the deprived children and communities in their homes be it an orphanage home, street or village; take pictures together with them, print the pictures out in frames which is given them for free. We also in our very own small way make some donations to them. We visit the homes and communities and spend the day with them for them to feel they have not been neglected by the society and that people still care about them. A previous version of this annual program took place at Teshie orphanage where the children were given a whole day of fun, merry making, meals, drinks souvenirs and other entertaining stuff just to make them feel comfortable and not having the feeling of dejection and neglect. This year will see a twist by actually going to the streets of James Town to photograph and interact with the children in their own environment. We believe that we can capture priceless moments with the children as we engage them for the day. This is a whole day event with activities such as

  • Makeup sessions for the children for the photo shoot
  •  Setting up a studio whiles teaching the children how studio`s are setup,
  • Interact with some of the children on how to use camera`s and take pictures
  • Have the children pose in the studio for their portrait photo shoot
  • The children will be allowed to take pictures with the cameras
The whole event will be captured on tape with the event filmed and pictures taken. With all this activities there will be a great entertainment package to keep the energy and tempo up and the children entertained and excited. There will be activities such as
  • Music, dancing ,food and drinks
