Help-Portrait Iowa City 2013

Help-Portrait December 2013

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.

In December, photographers around the world will be grabbing their cameras, finding people in need and taking their picture. When the prints are ready, the photographs get delivered.

Yep. It really is that easy.

This is about GIVING the pictures, not taking them. These portraits are not for your portfolio, website, or for sale. Money isn’t involved here. This holiday season, you have the chance to give a family something they may have never had before—a portrait together.

Help-Portrait’s mission? Our mission at Help-Portrait is simply to equip and mobilize you, the photography community. We want to make sure you have all the information that you need to successful participate in Help-Portrait on 07 December 2013. We want to help you find other people in your area that are wanting to be part of Help-Portrait or have already begun to plan the event. We want you to have the opportunity to give.

A Bus-Stop Productions’ crews volunteered to meet up with Eastern Iowa photographers and volunteers gifting hope and happiness through free portraits. Our 2013 event was Dec. 7, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Iowa Memorial Union. Here is a promotional video for Help-Portrait showing the success of the event.
