All photographers (amateur, professional, whatever!), make-up artists, graphic artists, hair stylists – check out this amazing nation-wide service project.
The official summary: “Help-Portrait is a collection of photographers around the world using their time, equipment, and expertise to give back to those who are less fortunate. What does that look like? It looks like photographers taking pictures. And then giving those pictures back to the families. Help-Portrait, just to give you an idea, currently has around 1,700 photographers involved in over 260 different locations, including more than 40 different countries. So you would be partnering with a worldwide initiative to see many underprivileged families receive a family portrait this year.
None of the photographers or volunteers involved are being paid or making money off these photographs. None of the pictures taken will be used on personal websites or portfolios. The goal is simply to find people in need and take their picture in order to give the picture back.”
This is a great opportunity to be a part of something – I promise it will be fun too!
