We have been receiving a handful of emails from people around the world looking to have their photo taken at a Help-Portrait event.

This is awesome. This is awesome because that means that our photographers are getting the word out and people who could benefit from this day are hearing.

Here’s the thing. We at Help Portrait are working really hard to make sure all of our photographers are equipped for the day. That is our goal- to make sure that every photographer who wants to be involved has found a place and feels ready to participate.

We exist to inspire and motivate those within the industry and those who want to give.

We are not about giving away free photography. And via email, it is tough to know whether the sender of the email is legitimate or just looking for free photography. Also being that we are an international organization, it is just simply impossible to know details of every event.

So. We are not making it a practice to connect photographers with subjects.

But we want to make sure that every family/person in need that wants a portrait taken is given that chance. So listed below are the best ways for someone looking to receive a portrait to find the event in their area.

If you are someone looking to have your portrait taken:

1. Check our facebook page. There you will see many people posting about the event in their city. Feel free to post there if you are trying to find an event. It could be as simple as:

Could someone give me information on any Help-Portrait events occurring in Chicago, IL?

2. Search “Help Portrait” on facebook. Many cities have created their own page and you will be able to find a location there.

3. Look for your city on the Community Site.

4. Use google to search for “Help Portrait” + your city name.


We hope this helps.

We are so grateful to the thousands of photographers who have planned events and put so much time and energy into making Help Portrait a reality in 2010. We consider it an honor to be able to support you in what you are doing.
