We are gearing up for Help-Portrait 2015 and this is just one example of the joy we hope to bring to this year’s participants. We have photographers, hairstylists, make-up artists and barbers willing to volunteer their time to brighten the day of individuals suffering through life’s transitions.

In order to make this event a success. we will need the help of others willing to donate to aid in assisting with some of the supplies we will need. We hope that you will find it in your heart to contribute to this worthy cause. Join us by clicking here!

Smiles like this are what we seek to bring out as part of Help-Portrait.

Seeking Cleveland photographers, other volunteers

Help-Portrait

I’m looking to launch Help-Portrait Cleveland this December and in order to make this a successful project I need help.

If you’re not familiar with Help-Portrait, please stop by their site. On the site you will find a lot of great information, but in a nutshell it’s an international photo project offering those less fortunate than maybe you and I to experience a professional photography session.

We will set up a portrait studio and take photos of individuals and families that are not accustomed to having their photos taken professionally and then present them with a print – all for FREE!

All of the details have not been ironed out just yet, but we are seeking volunteers and sponsors. The volunteers would be photographers, make up artists, graphic designers, and anyone willing to help bring a smile to the faces of Cleveland families that don’t always have a lot to smile about.

Photographers would provide their own equipment i.e., cameras, lighting, backdrops and anything else you feel you would need for portrait photography. If you have a laptop or printer you’re willing to provide that would be great too!

If you are willing to sponsor this event some of the items we need are photo paper, printers, computers and a site to set up our studio. The event is planned to concur with other events around the world on Saturday, December 8, 2012 – what a great present!

If you or someone you know might be interested in assisting with this project, please visit our page and leave a message, or respond to this post.

Let’s work together to bring some cheer to local families this holiday season! The more the merrier and all ideas and suggestions are welcome.

Enjoy!
