The stories and perceptions that a single photograph can portray are powerful. "We remember 20% of what we hear, 30% of what we say and 90% of what we see. If you want to leave an impression - you need to show PEOPLE. I believe we can all make a difference in some way to positively affect the lives of others. As the ancient proverb goes . . ."A Smile should be more than a memory".

In 2011 I started Cameras without borders as a way to help non profits locally and indigenous cultures communicate thier message with pictures and videos to share with the world.  while traveling i meet local artists and offer there work online in Ai art gallery.  Please take a look at the works.  proceeds from all galleries with the cameras without borders logo benefit the artists and communities where they live.

Pamela Bhatia, an artist and international award-winning photographer, has traveled to 10 countries and worked with some of the world’s leading brands. In 1996, Bhatia left her anthropology studies at RI College to join five other females and the first woman allowed to work as a waitress onboard Royal Caribbean Cruise line. In 1998-1999 she served as Director of events for the United States Chamber of Commerce in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. She worked closely with the US Embassy, American Businesses and Middle East Partners throughout the UAE during operation Dessert Fox. After returning to the United States she served as Director of Corporate Development and later Executive Director of the American Heart Association overseeing all of Rhode Island and Southern New England. In 2008 she left the Heart Association and pursued her passion and love of photography and art. Bhatia remembers, “My favorite part of the travel and anthropological work was always the film and people. I love working with people and capturing on film what is in front of me. It’s a way of preserving, enjoying, and loving the life in front of me. It was scary to take the leap into taking photography from hobby to business but the thought of not doing it and regretting not taking that chance scared me even more.” Bhatia holds the 2014 Best of Show & 2014, 2015 and 2016 Court of Honor for the Professional Photography Association of Rhode Island.  She is a member of the Professional Photographers of America & PPARI, the Northern RI Chamber of Commerce, the American Association of Professional Woman, Digital Photographers Assoc, and a contributing photographer for iStock. Bhatia speaks frequently about photography and women in business, most recently as a featured guest speaker at the Southern New England Women’s Expo, and on the Patricia Raskin’s Positive Business radio show. She served as Director of Photography for “Rhode Island, a Photo Portrait of the Ocean State” a hard cover portrait book published by the Providence Business News.
