Help-Portrait: Giving Back

Sometimes I wonder how I can give back to others with the talents that God has given me and today, poof, there is my answer. I had heard of this organization before in a photography magazine that I get! I bookmarked the page and then forgot about it until Mike, another photog friend brought it back to my attention and now I am on fire to do this in our community!!

The group is called Help-Portrait and I am excited to join thousands of other photographers in giving back through photography!! We are working on getting this off the ground in our area and I am challenging other photographers to get involved and make a difference!! When I think about helping a single mom/dad, a sick child, a family who is down and out, the elderly person who has no one, it makes my heart skip a beat!! The premise is to do a shoot with these people, who would not otherwise have the opportunity and then deliver the photos to them, all free of charge!!

This is not to get my name out there or to grow my portfolio or make money (there is NO money involved)! This is about making another human being feel special and loved and giving them hope! The group has designated 12-12-09 as the big day but it can be any time, any where!!

This is a neat idea, but I'm wondering how the photographers find their...subjects.
