Help-Portrait Covington

December 7, 2019

12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Location: 30 West Pike St. Covington KY

Help-Portrait Covington at BLDG on December 7th, 12 – 4 pm!

What is Help-Portrait you ask? The idea behind Help-Portrait is simple:

  1. Find someone in need
  2. Take their portrait
  3. Print the photo
  4. Deliver it to them

On December 7th, BLDG will join forces with local photographers and non-profits to give professional photographs to those in need. The portraits can be used as holiday keepsakes for families, or even as a headshot for professional opportunities. Attendees will receive one printed 8.5″ x 11″ color photograph and receive the digital version by email. 

**Please note there is a limit of one portrait per individual or family.** 

How can you get involved?

1) If you know someone in need who would like to have their portrait taken, please share this event with them

2) To volunteer, fill out this form and we’ll be in touch

3) To sponsor the event, please contact event organizer Andrea Bacca andrea@bldgrefuge.com

About Help-Portrait

Celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart began the Help-Portrait movement in 2009 as he contemplated using his skills and expertise to give back to those who may not have the opportunity for a professional photo.  The idea is that a photographer has the unique ability to help someone smile, laugh and return their dignity. It is a movement, a shift in photography. From Bangalore, India to Ghana, Africa to Ubuntu, South Africa to Chukotka, Russia the language of Help-Portrait crosses cultural and socio-economic barriers. Even Hollywood has gotten in the act as A-list actors Zachary Levi and Yvette Nicole Brown volunteered at a Help-Portrait event in Los Angeles.
