Since 2009, Djimmy has been learning how to be a photojournalist in Zanmi Lakay’s Photography Workshops. In 2014 Djimmy was rewarded for his hard work with a full dslr camera kit and computer presented to him in front of the class during our 4th annual Jouk Li Jou Kan Foto (Youth Photo Camp) in Jacmel. Along with graduation and funeral paid assignments, Djimmy carries his camera around with him shooting daily life. Also – Djimmy is a Christian and not into Vodou, but he knows all good shooters put those feelings aside for the sake of news and documentation.

Our young Haitian photojournalism students have been creating beautiful images for many years, and now with small business and computer training through our Jouk Li Jou Kan Foto (Youth Photo Camps) they are ready to explore new business opportunities. During Kanaval is the perfect time to begin the first step. The initial printing of 10 images by 10 different photographers (all were made by our amazing photo students from ACFFC!) was small so we can learn together what works and what doesn’t work including prices, marketing, and reinvestment by the students. More postcard images will be added in the coming months, and online print sales are next!
