Help-Portrait, Kolkata in collaboration with Teach for India. – Inaugural Help-Portrait Mumbai ! ( 2023 )

In the winter of 2023, Help-Portrait, Kolkata had its first session in Mumbai, in collaboration with Teach for India. Thus the inaugural  Help-Portrait, Mumbai session took shape.

Having taken Help-Portrait to the heart of India and some really interesting locations around the country  in the past,  I always wanted to do a Help-Portrait session in Mumbai. I reached out to Mumbai based fine-art photographer and advertising copywriter Bhairavi Parikh, whom I had met online through a copywriting masterclass that we both were participating in. I’m really grateful to her for agreeing to come on board as soon as she heard the concept. 

The Help-Portrait movement is made possible by the generosity of photographers like Bhairavi and all the other volunteers who so generously give their time, talent and energy towards this cause. For the Mumbai event, we collaborated with Teach for India and this was made possible by Parita Bhatt, a Teach For India fellow, who arranged for some of her students at TFI to be photographed.

For the Mumbai event, Bhairavi decided to shoot multiple length versions of each subject and they came out so well that we decided to give out all three
( close up, mid length and full length ) to the kids!

Thanks to the entire team for pulling this off at such a short notice Trupti Bhingare – Responsible Charity, Parita Bhatt – Teach for India , our Photographer – Bhairavi Parikh, Naresh Jogu – Image Retoucher and Sushil Joshi – First Assistant.
