Help Portrait is happening THIS WEEKEND! I
‘m super bummed I won’t be able to volunteer this year, as I’ll be working a wedding. But a group of friends is organizing one of the Dallas Help Portrait events at Family Gateway in Downtown Dallas.
What is Help Portrait?
From the Help Portrait website:
Founded by Celebrity Photographer Jeremy Cowart, Help-Portrait is a community of photographers coming together across the world to use their photography skills to give back to their local community.
In December, photographers around the world will be grabbing their cameras, finding people in need and taking their picture. When the prints are ready, the photographs get delivered.
Yep. It really is that easy.
This is about GIVING the pictures, not taking them. These portraits are not for your portfolio, website, or for sale. Money isn’t involved here. This holiday season, you have the chance to give a family something they may have never had before—a portrait together.
Our mission? Our mission at Help-Portrait is simply to equip and mobilize you, the photography community. We want to make sure you have all the information that you need to successful participate in Help-Portrait on 10 December 2011. We want to help you find other people in your area that are wanting to be part of Help-Portrait or have already begun to plan the event. We want you to have the opportunity to give.
You don’t have to be a photographer to participate. If you have the time, this would be an amazing event to be a part of! I know last year, they needed as many volunteers as possible to help check in, talk to people, and help with the flow of traffic. If you’d like to help out, contact Christina at christina_quintanilla @ yahoo (dot) com! Or to find a Help Portrait event near you, visit the Help Portrait Community.
