As most of you know, I’ve had the privilege of being involved in the coordinating of Help-Portrait’s Nashville event for 3 years running now. It’s by far the photographic highlight of my year… and I’ve never once even taken a photo at one 🙂
Help-Portrait is an international movement that happens all on one day (with lots of planning) all around the world and was spurred with the simple idea of; What if, for one day, instead of taking someones photo, we give it to them?
With many opportunities to offer love, respect and relate to others that many of us don’t get the pleasure of interacting with on a daily basis. Funny thing is; Many of us pity the under-privileged and after spending an afternoon loving on them we may just relate to them more than we might think.
ivoh.org, an organization for using the media to better the world, wrote an article on this years Help-Portrait that I’m honored to have been interviewed for;
The walls between the privileged and the under-privileged start to break down during Help-Portrait events, Robinson said; people who may not otherwise interact with the homeless end up making them feel beautiful, worthy, and cared for.

Looking forward to many more years to come and possibly even expanding my involvement a bit 🙂
