Just wanted to check in and say hello to all of you! My team and I are SO excited about this year’s 5th anniversary of Help-Portrait. It’s insane that 5 years have already passed. I never had any idea of what this would become. But you guys have taken a very simple idea and made it a reality all over the world. My favorite thing to do is to browse all your photos and stories on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. The photos and videos are just mind-blowing.
Isn’t it crazy how such a simple thing can change lives? We take our cameras for granted but so many people in need don’t have that luxury to have their photos taken. But that’s why we’re here.This is about them, not us. The portraits you give to them are priceless. They will remain treasures for the rest of their lives. Please remember that as you grind through the details and logistics of planning your HP event and as you fix that annoying printer that never seems to work. In the end, it’s all worth it.
We’ve heard time and time again from photographers that this is the greatest thing they’ve ever done with their cameras and equipment and we agree.
