Help-Portrait LA 2011

12 Dec

On Dec. 10, 2011, I participated in one of the most meaningful and rewarding events I have been a part of – Help-Portrait!  All over the world, photographers, makeup artist, hairstylists and volunteers get together to donate their time, talent, equipment and expertise to shoot portraits for those who are less fortunate.  In Los Angeles alone, there were photographers serving at 5 different locations.  I was part of the Eagle Rock/Glassell Park location.

From 10 am – 5 pm, families arrived at the Del Principe de Paz Church, got a makeover and portraits taken by professional photographers.  Each person/family received 8×10 and 4×6 prints to take home, most everyone with a big smile on the face.

It was amazing to see so many talented people who have taken the time to give back to the community.  As photographer Eric Politzer said, “As soon as all the photographers arrived, we all left our egos at the door, because it’s not about us today, it’s about giving back.”
