HELP-PORTRAIT 2019

Our History

Help-Portrait was founded by celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart in 2008. Our mission is to empower photographers, hairstylists and makeup artists to use their skills, tools and expertise to give back to their local community.

Annual Events

Each December, photographers, hairstylists and makeup artists all around the world will find people in need, take their picture, print their picture and then deliver it—free of charge.

What We’re About

Help-Portrait is about GIVING the pictures, not taking them. These portraits aren’t for a portfolio, website, or sale. It’s about giving people who otherwise couldn’t afford photography, a chance to capture a moment, a memory…and a whole lot more.

HELP-PORTRAIT 2018

 

 

Join Me As We Provide A Portrait To Those

Who Might Never Have One...

 

 

A SHIFT IN THINKING…

HELP-PORTRAIT IS A GLOBAL MOVEMENT OF PHOTOGRAPHERS USING THEIR TIME, GEAR AND EXPERTISE TO GIVE BACK TO THOSE IN NEED.

Founded by celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart, Help-Portrait is a community of photographers, coming together across the world to use their photography skills to give back to their local community.

On December 1,  2018, photographers around the world will be grabbing their cameras, finding people in need and taking their picture. The shots are taken, printed on the spot and delivered. 

Yep. It really is that easy.

And by the way, we don’t want to see your photos. This is about GIVING the pictures, not taking them. These portraits are not for your portfolio, website, or for sale. Money isn’t involved here. This holiday season, you have the chance to give a family something they may have never had before—a portrait together.

Our mission? Our mission at Help-Portrait is simply to equip and mobilize you, the photography community. We want to make sure you have all the information that you need to successful participate in Help-Portrait on December 1, 2018. We want to help you find other people in your area that are wanting to be part of Help-Portrait or have already begun to plan the event. We want you to have the opportunity to give.

Poverty steals a lot of things, like your home and car and food, but it also steals something on the inside. Help-Portrait feeds that something on the inside.”— Annie Downs, Help-Portrait Events Coordinator

“My portrait, he said, represents where I'm going, not where I've been.”— Phillip Jackovich, Help-Portrait Subject
