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 was founded by celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart and Kyle Chowning 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. 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.
In 2017, I found a big void for opportunities to participate in this cause in the North Dallas area. I decided to start up Help-Portrait Plano to give creatives and volunteers in this area a chance to serve locally. I recruited other photographers, friends and co-workers and we had an amazing turnout. Plans for 2018 are underway and we hope to make it even bigger than ever!
