NORTH BAY - Excitement is building as local photographers and photo enthusiasts get ready to gather for the fourth annual Photo Group North Bay Help Portrait event. Help Portrait is an global movement of photographers who volunteer their time, expertise and equipment to give back to those in need. “ Globally Help Portrait has taken place at 2,128 locations in 62 countries. The community of photographers and volunteers now numbers over 52,000 worldwide," says William Ferguson, Help Portrait community liaison.

The Photo Group North Bay event is organized by well known local photographer Ed Eng. “The task is simple enough. Find someone in need, take their photo, print, frame and deliver their portrait, all in one day, in time for Christmas.” Said Eng. Help Portrait has given over 282,000 portraits worldwide.

Local photographers, sponsors, and local businesses are preparing for the event, keen to share the spirit of the season. “The outpouring of support for this event has been phenomenal” Eng said.

The program will include free make up and hair dressing, five professionally manned studios, print proofing and framing station, free refreshments, and individual support for each of the participants. The portraits are taken on timed appointments throughout the day and are booked in advance.

The Photo Group North Bay Help Portrait event will run from 9:00am to 2:00pm at école secondaire Algonquin in North Bay on Sunday, December 1, 2013.
