Help-Portrait: A Movement of Photographers for Good
Help-Portrait is a global movement of photographers coming together to use their skills to give back to their local community. Founded by Celebrity Photographer Jeremy Cowart, these photographers are grabbing their cameras, finding people in need and taking their picture. Upon print, they will then deliver those pictures/portraits back as a gift.
It has very little to do with “taking” pictures, but rather, “giving” them. These portraits will not be for portfolios, websites, or for sale. Money is not a part of the transaction. For many receiving these portraits, it may very well be their first.
Help-Portrait’s website is designed to help the photography community successfully accomplish this mission. To date, over 10,000 photographers and 12,000 volunteers have signed up in over 1,000 locations and 54 countries!
