Recently, DeBeers Canada sponsored the Porcupine Photo Club Photographers, covering travel expenses to the community of Fort Albany, on the James Bay coast, to offer their "Portraits For Families" event.
Nine members of the PPC packed up their photography gear and flew into Fort Albany to take family portraits. About 45 families turned out to take advantage of the free offer, which included a framed 8.5 * 11 colour portrait, as well as a USB stick with a copy of the image.
For some residents of the northern community, it was their first opportunity to get a family portrait done.
This is the third year the PPC has offered their "Portraits For Families" event in Timmins and this is the second trip to isolated northern communities, and it grows and gets better each year. Last January about 42 families in Attawapiskat had their family portraits taken.
"Portrait For Families" was designed to offer the families of Timmins who could not afford to have this done an opportunity to have a family portrait taken.
The PPC would like to thank DeBeers Canada, and Brad Wood, for their outstanding support with the Northern Coast Edition of Portraits For Families.
