I just watched a documentary on National Geographic photographers, which highlighted something that we often forget while we are busy chasing clients. Photography has the power to change the world.
I haven’t been able to find a link to the National Geographic documentary but I’m sure it will be on again, however this video popped up from Photographers Igniter in 2012 and it features celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart, who of course also started Help Portrait.
The stories are inspiring, and it’s a great reminder that as photographers we have the opportunity to tell amazing stories to a global audience no matter their race, language or up bringing. Something to keep in mind for 2014 I think.
