I am a Southern African wikipedian who tries to add photos to missing articles where possible. I try take photos of missing subjects where I can. My other interests are cleaning up uncategorised files, which includes sorting through unnecessary personal images that new users tend to upload and forget

Conflict of interest declaration[edit]

I am employed by and a part time student at the University of the Western Cape. Although I have uploaded some photos relevant to the topic I avoid editing these articles where possible

{{subst:Image permission}} {{subst:npd}}

An image "in our family's photo collection" is absolutely not "own work" -- it is the work of whoever actually was the photographer. He or his heirs hold the copyright and your ownership of a paper copy of it does not give you the right to license it.
