C&C in Sierra Leone

The overall purpose of the ongoing mission is to gather information about the photography industry in Sierra Leone and identify and analyze the market opportunities.

During our stay we will be focusing on wedding and commercial photography and the supporting industries like printing, development and equipment. In Freetown we are conducting a 4 days workshop for the most talented local photographers in cooperation with the National Photographers Union. The National Photographers Union has more than 10.000 members throughout Sierra Leone, many of them former combatant from the Civil War. The mission has been made possible with support from the LO/FTF Council.

A few of the 25 Sierra Leone photographers that are participating in the workshop Commerce & Culture are conducting in Freetown.
