HELP PORTRAIT WORLDWIDE — Happening at Old First (12.07, 9 am – 4 pm)

Founded by Celebrity Photographer Jeremy Cowart, Help-Portrait is a community of photographers coming together across the world to use their photography skills to give back to their local community.

On December 7, 2013, photographers around the world will be grabbing their cameras, finding people in need and taking their picture. When the prints are ready, the photographs are printed and given as a gift to those indivduals.

Yep. It really is that easy.

This is about GIVING the pictures, not taking them. These portraits are not for anybody’s portfolio, website, or for sale. Money isn’t involved here. This holiday season, photographers have the chance to give back to the community by offering a portrait to an individual or family.

Just in case you haven’t seen it, here is the video explaining the idea of Help-Portrait:
