Dear friends, About a month ago I found out about Help Portrait help-portrait.com from an amazing photographer Jen McKen. The idea behind Help Portrait is simple – find someone in need, take their portrait, print their portrait, give them the prints. Unfortunately I found out about it too late to participate in their November 4th event. As I watched video clips on the Help Portrait’s website and read blog entries, I started thinking about how lucky I am. I have a beautiful wife, an amazing daughter and a lot to be thankful for. I would like to give something back to the community. I am trying to organize a photography event at the Pittsburgh Women`s Shelter on Sunday, February 6. We need photographers, photo editors, makeup artists and volunteers who would help with the organization of this event. If you are available on Sunday, February 6 and would like to donate your time, talent and skills, please let me know. It would be amazing if we could all pull together and make this event happen. Please email me as soon as you can if you would like to help.
