Help Portrait - December 10, 2011
Photo from past event at Skid Row Rescue Mission in Los Angeles
I was psyched to be involved with an event and movement called Help-Portrait. Here is the organization's mission statement as pulled from the website:
Help-Portrait is a community of photographers coming together across the world to use their photography skills to give back to their local community.
Here is a link to a WSJ article about founder Jeremy Cowart.
An amazing 644 photographer groups have been formed, and on December 10, portrait sessions were happening at cities around the globe.
Local photographer Alex Kreher organized the Portland event and it went off without a hitch thanks to his efforts, and the efforts of a number of contributors. Big thanks goes out to all involved, including the shooters, the stylists, the re-touchers, the printers, the hosts, and every volunteer that stepped up to make Help-Portrait possible.
Special thanks goes out to all the families and folks that came by and sat for portraits, this day was all about you.
