Help Portrait is a movement of photographers who are using their time, equipment and expertise to give back to those who are less fortunate.

This event will be in March 2013, and is only beginning to take shape.

It involves a group including a hairdresser, a make up artist and photographer and assistant, attending a nursing home and taking images of people and making them feel like a king or queen just for the day....

More information to come.

Basically this idea comes from my time working as a Paramedic and realising that a lot of people in nursing homes are lonely and feel isolated, so I wanted to make them feel special and the centre of attention for a day.

Love this, perhaps we can do something similar to this in our area. This type of event does the following:

  1. It fosters some good for the community.
  2. It keeps a core group of people together, thereby making event recruiting easier.
  3. It provides a mechanism to continue to foster intra-organizational ties involving hair makeup, and photographers.
  4. If a general interest story is written, it will provide better brand recognition with Help-Portrait and keep the name more familiar in the community.

Let us know how it turns out!
