What do Yacht Week skippers do when they are not skippering in the Med? In James Kell’s case he is a photographer. James and a few others will be combining their sailing and photography by setting sail from Southampton in December to Sydney, crossing the Atlantic then Pacific oceans. On the way they will be rolling out a new social enterprise called Tribe Photo that aims to bring photography equipment and skills to villagers in remote communities, and a platform for them to sell their best photos to the world for $1 each. They gain photography skills and money, the world gains unique images.
On Thursday night at The Yacht Week headquarters Tribe Photo will be putting on a party to launch both Tribe Photo and its Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign. There will be a DJ, a bar, art installations and all past and present Yachtweekers are welcome to attend. Entry is free so bring a friend!
