Any plans yet for HP 2011? December 10th will be coming soon...
I came across this article about prison portraits of in-mates with their families, taken within prison. kinda reminded me of help portrait in a way. just wanted to share the article. that's all http://lens.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/01/26/up-against-the-wall-prison...
If you'd like to volunteer this year-please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org unless you've already done so. If you're willing to volunteer at our Aliquippa site please let me know.
I'll be sending out an email with the latest information on our events by the end of the week.
Help Portrait 2011 video is online, check it out. Lets crush it this year!
We've also added an event at the Franklin Center in Aliquippa. We'll be working in conjunction with an event that is already planned at the center that day. There is likely to be a big demand for volunteers and portrait stations at this site. Aliquippa is about 30 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh.
I'm building a volunteer list for this year's Help-Portrait events. Please send along your email address to email@example.com, if you'd like to volunteer this year on Saturday, December 8. We're looking for photographers, photo editors, hair and make-up artists and anyone who wants to help out with odds and ends.
You can learn more about Help-Portrait here: http://www.facebook.com/helpportraitpittsburgh and here:www.help-portrait.com
It's a great chance to give back to your community, give a portrait to someone who may not otherwise have the means to get one, and see some big smiles when they hold the print in their hands.
We have confirmations for events at the following locations this year:
-Women's Center and Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh
-Women's Center of Beaver County
-Community Human Services, Oakland
-Community Human Service, downtown Pittsburgh 200+ person residential site
Waiting to hear back details on an additional Beaver County location and one other possible Pittsburgh (East Liberty) location.
We really need to start reaching out to potential sponsors to try to get some donations of food, coffee, paper and ink for printing, etc.. If anyone can help in taking a lead with that or has connections that might be willing to donate, I can definitely use the help.
Feel free to download some of the images from the Facebook page. Look forward to seeing the finished product.
video is almost ready, was super busy planning my wedding, and regaining lost footing having traveled all last summer. If anyone has any photos they would like to send over for the promo, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
I was one of the late volunteers last year and am definitely still interested in helping out this year.
Time to start thinking about this year's event. First things first. I'll reach to last year's venues and make sure they're interested in doing it again. It seems like we had an surge in volunteering interest at the last minute last year. Hopefully, we can carry that over and add a few more sites. Any suggestions of specific organizations that might be interested and deal with clients who could benefit from Help-Portrait?
It's never too early! I was intending to start working out this year's partner organizations next month but if you have ideas feel free to through them out. We'll likely build upon the 2 organizations we held events at last year. I'm thinking at least 4 locations this year.
