Bassano del Grappa, Italia (PRWEB) November 30, 2005

Manfrotto, the world’s leading manufacturer of support products for pro video and photography, is proud to announce the launch of the “Local Heroes” project, designed to acknowledge photographers who bring a different perspective to the world of photography.

Photographers selected as “Local Heroes” are not necessarily famous photographers, however, are those that give back to his or her community through membership in groups and associations or dedicate time to the world of photographic education, whether by teaching in schools or by contributing to journals and magazines.

Selected “Local Heroes” are presented with Manfrotto equipment for use and their work is presented on a dedicated website, accessible through http://www.manfrotto.com. Their work will be showcased on the site, with each photographer having an individual web page with a biography, commentary and a photo gallery.

“Local Heroes” from around the world will help spread photo culture and act as “teachers” for the younger generation of photographers.
