Here is a chance to give back this holiday season. Help Portrait is a movement of photographers from around the world who are using their time, equipment and expertise to give back to those who are less fortunate this holiday season.
- Find someone in need
- Take their portrait
- Print their portrait
- and deliver them
From amateur photographers like me right through to professionals, December 12 is the time to give back. I love this cause and think it is a great vehicle to make a difference in the world. Things haven’t been that great with the GFC so there are a lot of people who need a lift. Rather than asking for the usual cash donation to help the needy this is a great way of instilling confidence back into people who have been on the wrong side of luck lately.
On December 12 I will be setting up next to Vital Connection (a soup kitchen that provide food for the homeless) at Emma Miller Place, Roma Street, Brisbane QLD and taking portraits for the homeless, and either printing them on the spot, or printing them to deliver in the following days. I would love to have a hand or two so if you are in the Brisbane area on December 12, don’t be shy and contact me via Twitter, www.twitter.com/brusca. There are also some great people to connect with through the Brisbane Help Portrait Group, so if you can’t make it to Roma Street you may be able to help out elsewhere.
