Help-Portrait is a global movement of passion. It is an exciting collaboration of photographers, hair stylists, make-up artists, and other volunteers that come together to provide the unique experience of a professional photo shoot for the less fortunate in the community. Help-Portrait is simply about ‘giving’ rather than ‘taking’ photographs of individuals and families who may not otherwise have the opportunity. Help-Portrait was foundedby celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart and Kyle Chowning in 2008 and takes place in 67 countries.
Help-Portrait 2014 took place on December the 6th. Combining the strengths of 65 professionals & community members who donated time and talent, 8 other sponsoring organizations and many non-profit organizations that spread the word, we created 215 smiles and we made a positive difference to many lives.
