Help-Portrait a global movement

Help-Portrait is about GIVING the pictures, not taking them. These portraits are not intended for a portfolio, website, or sale. It’s about giving people who otherwise could not afford to have such portraits taken. A chance to capture a moment, a memory…and a whole lot more.
