Help-Portrait St John's December 3, 2011

The Help-Portrait is a community of photographers from all over the world who volunteer their time and skills to give back to the community. The focus will be on people in need, the homeless, people in shelters, single Moms with or without children. People who would not normally think of or could afford to have their portrait taken. If the first two years are any indication it can leave a positive impression on peoples lives.
