Portreat’s photographers would shoot images of visitors at events and put them online, free to download, but with a charge for ordering prints.
October 2007: Portreat.com was taken offline, pictures were transferred to Flickr. Two of my own sets were not transferred: Pictures from celebrating crowds during the Holland – Argentina match of last year’s World Cup soccer, taken in Johannesburg, and photos from the Rotterdam streetparade a few years back. The first set of pictures was on a hard disk stolen from me, last year in Jo’burg. The second set has somehow managed to escape my archival tendencies.
The sets which were contributed by other photographers have been deleted.
